Abstract:

Occupational researchers and analysts continue to search for new ways to meet the needs of the manpower, personnel, and training MPT communities they serve.

It is alleged that traditional task-based occupational analysis is too labor intensive, too costly, too cumbersome, and too static to meet the emerging and rapidly changing needs of a business process- and team-based approach to the organization of work activities Casio, 1995 May, 1996 a-c. More and more, the trend has been toward relying on the judgments and opinions of a few subject matter experts SMEs on a handful of broad work dimensions or requirements to make important policy decisions.
