Abstract:

Manpower authorization shortages, increasing skill requirements, and CongressionalDoD concerns for weapon system WS life-cycle support costs mandate that manpower, personnel, training. amd safety MPTS issues become integral parts of new WS planning, conceptual development, and design trade-off decisions. The Air Force Human Resources Laboratory AFHRL is currently developing technologies, tools and data bases to help address this need. One of the most important of the data bases in MPTS support is the Occupational Research Data Bank ORDB. The ORDB provides storage and on-line retrieval of a variety of occupational data, thus streamlining the laborious and time-consuming process of finding background information through requests to computer data bases or searching regulations, technical reports, or previous research occupational analysis studies. Information within the ORDB is critical to a number of MPTS efforts within AFHRL, as well as work underway in the Air Force Systems Command MPTS Directorate.
