Abstract

There has been a problem of individuals within an Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC) being physically unable to perform the assigned tasks. The job assignment criterion was developed through three phases of work: Phase I analyzed AFSC tasks, Phase II developed strength/stamina tests, and Phase III established the assignment criterion. The rationale of assigning AF personnel to an AFSC is to make sure that the AFSC demands and the physical capacity of the individuals are compatible. Within this approach, the relevant attributes of an individual were the individual's anthropometry, strength and endurance. Each AFSC was viewed primarily as having a three-tiered organizational structure with tasks subdivided into further breakout elements.
