### Requirements Determination

Question | Answer |

What is a Scatter Diagram? | A two-dimensional graph that describes the type and strength of relationships between two variables. |

What is a Variable? | A characteristic of anything that can be manipulated or made to vary. |

Describe Independent Variable (IV) | A characteristic we manipulate to see what happens: the X Value. WLFs are often the IV, it is manipulated to see how it affects MRHs. |

Describe Dependent Variable (DV) | A characteristic that changes due to changes in the IV: the Y Value. MHRs are often the DV, its value depends on changes in WLFs. |

Describe Axis | On a scatter diagram, the horizontal line (axis) is the X-axis, where IVs are plotted. The vertical axis is the Y-axis where dependent variables are plotted. |

Data Point | Each data point represents the intersection of an X and Y value. They are read (X,Y). |

Positive/Direct Relationship | As the value of X (WLF) increases, so does the value of Y (MH) or as the value of X decreases so does the value of Y |

Negative/Inverse Relationship | As the value of X (WLF) increases, the value of Y (MH) decreases. The reverse also being true. |

Curvilinear Relationship | A relationship between X and Y that starts out as positive, but ends up as a negative. The reverse also being true. |

No Relationship | Variables X and Y are unrelated, and their data does not correspond and cannot be graphed on a line. Increases in X (WLF) has no effect on Y (MH) |

Strong | All data points tightly clustered together about the mean. |

Weak | All data points loosely clustered about the mean. |

Unrelated | All data points scattered all over the graph, X and Y values occur without influencing each other. |

Linear Equation | The most direct relationship between two variables is the linear equation, Y = a+bX |

Y represents... | The number of man-hours predicted by C&R, given a WLF (IV) and number of man-hours currently used at the sample bases (DV) |

b represents... | The slope of the regression line. X axis |

a represents... | The point at which the regression line crosses the Y axis. Y intercept |

A manpower standard is.. | A means of assigning authorized spaces to a work center so the required number of AF members can be employed. |

Standard development involves.. | Workload Factors (WLFs) and man-hours (MH) |

A workload factor is.. | A driver of workload. WLFs predict man-hours. |

Man-hours are.. | time spent performing the work. |

A single location standard is appropriate when.. | The function under study is peculiar to one location or the service provided is very different from other locations. When a base falls outside the applicability AF or MAJCOM manpower standard. |

Variable man-hours are.. | Directly related to workload factors. As WLFs increase, variable man-hours increase. |

Fixed man-hours are.. | Unrelated to workload factors. (Ex. Inspection preparation) |

Standard Indirect Man-hours are.. | Man-hours related to tasks that are common to almost every work center. (Ex. Performance reports, directing work center activities.) |

Explain Y=a+b(1)x(1)+b(2)x(2)...b(n)x(n)+SIAM | Y-Sum of all applicable man-hours a-Sum of fixed measured man-hours b-Direct man-hours to product ONE UNIT OF WORK SIAM-Sum of all indirect work man-hours X-Value of the workload factor |

Grades and skills are initially discussed in which phase of manpower standard development? | Study planning |

The two most prevalent methods of determining grades and skills are... | Non C&R and C |

What form is used to document grades and skill for a manpower standard? | AF Form 1113 |

Grades and skills that are listed on a Manpower table reflect.. | Required grades and skills |

T or F: You should always consider funding limitations when determining skills and grades. | False |

Using the C&R method of Grade and Skill determination, who determines the grade and skill percentages? | AF Functional OPR |

T or F: It is AF policy to use senior NCOs in lieu of lower grade commissioned officers when practical and feasable. | True |

What concept is used in determining what skill levels are needed? | Workers spend most of their time at the highest skill level |

What is the correct abbreviation for a 1LT and a Chief Master Sergeant on a manpower table? | LT and CMS |

Normally, how would you reflect a civilian on a Manpower Table if the function you were studying also had military requirements? | Military Grade |
