The purpose of this project was to provide a prioritized list of Army Medical Department AMEDD Military Occupational Specialties MOS to the soldiers manual and skill qualification test project officials. The derived listing of MOSs will be used to determine the order of actions necessary for the development of project products. A panel of seven members involved in the project at the Academy of Health Sciences participated in two rounds of decision making. In the first phase members independently prioritized a list of 30 MOSs. In the second phase of decision making members reviewed feedback from the first round of decisions by examination of statistically modeled data plots of average MOS ranks and the amount of disagreement associated with each MOS plot. Those MOS placements which were most disagreed upon were then targeted for discussion. After group revisions were accomplished a final MOS criterion list was prepared. To ensure that the panel members had indeed used the front-end-analysis information developed prior to the initial round of decisions, multiple linear regression analyses were conducted to determine the extent to which seven decision variables contributed to the prediction of the final MOS priority list. Results indicated that MOS density class, the projected soldiers manual completion date, and placement of the MOS in the medical evacuation chain contributed most highly to the final MOS order with R2s, of .66, .50, and .48 respectively.
