Class A . Works independently or under only general direction on
complex problems involving a ll phases of system analysis. Problem s are
complex because of diverse sources of input data and multiple-use require­
ments of output data. (F or example, develops an integrated production sched­
uling, inventory control, cost analysis, and sales analysis record in which
every item of each type is automatically processed through the full system
of records and appropriate followup actions are initiated by the computer.)
Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing problems
and advises subject-matter personnel on the implications of new or revised
systems of data processing operations. Makes recommendations, if needed,
for approval of m ajor systems installations or changes and for obtaining
equipment.
May provide functional direction to lower level systems analysts
who are assigned to assist.
Class B. Works independently or under only general direction on
problems that are relatively uncomplicated to analyze, plan, program, and
operate. Problem s are of limited complexity because sources of input data
are homogeneous and the output data are closely related. (F or example,

Converts statements of business problem s, typically prepared by a
systems analyst, into a sequence of detailed instructions which are required
to solve the problems by automatic data processing equipment. Working from
charts or diagram s, the program m er develops the precise instructions which,
when entered into the computer system in coded language, cause the manipu­
lation of data to achieve desired results. Work involves most of the following;
Applies knowledge of computer capabilities, mathematics, logic employed by
computers, and particular subject matter involved to analyze charts and
diagrams of the problem to be programmed; develops sequence of program
steps; writes detailed flow charts to show order in which data w ill be
processed; converts these charts to coded instructions for machine to follow;
tests and corrects program s; prepares instructions for operating personnel
during production run; analyzes, reviews, and alters program s to increase
operating efficiency or adapt to new requirements; maintains records of
program development and revisions. (NO TE; W orkers performing both
systems analysis and programming should be classified as systems analysts
if this is the skill used to determine their pay.)
