The first step of a workload analysis consists of determining the unit of analysis. By collecting job analytic information at the task, SkillObject, and Critical Work Function (CWF) levels, flexibility is embedded within future workload analyses by providing multiple units of analysis. Instead of simply focusing workforce and manpower planning on more generic time allowances (e.g., weekly, annually, etc…), work can be analyzed based on how much manpower is required for a particular task, SkillObject, or CWF for specified periods of time (e.g., hour, shift, weekend, etc…). Additional sample characteristics that feed workforce planning models using the task, SkillObject, and CWF infrastructure include the number of personnel required for tasks, percentage effort required by individual personnel, impact of additional personnel on task and manpower needs, the consequence of error and error likelihood related to various tasks. Moreover, collecting information about the work environment and specific contexts and situations is vitally important to fully understanding positional workload.
Task metrics collected in the work element surveys (see the SkillObject development process) will be used as an initial basis for workload analysis. However, the Contractors will also use the Army Workload and Performance System (AWPS) to analyze generic project work breakdown structures provided in association with specific positions. The AWPS has been applied to a variety of organizations in Army and Navy including contracting offices, human resources regional centers, disability processing centers, and IT project management organizations.
AWPS has been designed to enable organizations to clearly identify their workload and the resources necessary to accomplish that work, allowing more accurate forecasts of future workload and resource requirements. With minimal effort, AWPS enables managers to build work breakdown structures that describe their major activities, institute daily time-to-task data collection from all employees (including military and contractors), and apply earned value analyses to management and forecasting.
The AWPS toolset is a turnkey package of software modules already owned and operated by the US Government. The AWPS software includes four basic modules: (1) Work Mapping Tool, (2) Time Collection Tool, (3) Performance Management and Control, and (4) Strategic Planning and Forecasting Tool.
