Application what can you do in report manager

Application:What can you do in Report Manager?

  • Create Indexes

    • Purpose: to summarize multiple data series with a single data series based on user-selected weighting

  • Create Descriptors

    • Purpose: to aggregate the observations or data values of a single series into categories

  • Create Projections

    • Purpose: to aggregate industry or occupation projections by descriptor or O*NET categories

  • Create Reports

    • Purpose: to layer and nest data series by dimensions of information with ease of pivot table environment

Application impediments identified on survey

Application: Impediments Identified on Survey

  • Difficulty to use Report Manager

    • Guidelines or “quick tips” needed

    • Steep learning curve

    • Consider advantage of canned reports

  • Methodological Issues

    • Prolonged database processing time

      • Directory availability and maintenance of deleted data

    • SOC vs O*NET codes don’t match

      • Manual assignment very time consuming

      • Want to customize level and importance cutoff

    • “All Other” occupations don’t have O*NET designations

      • Excluded from skills-based projections


Application impediments identified on survey1

Application: Impediments Identified on Survey

  • Results from Report Manager not in demand

    • Information is not new

    • Employers/training providers need more specific information

    • Post example outcome reports on training website

  • Augment Capability in Report Manager

    • Skills gap analysis

      • Inclusive of unemployed

    • Align education requirements with skills demand


Impediment difficulty to use report manager

Impediment:Difficulty to use Report Manager

  • Options

    • Develop streamlined parallel system address impediments

      • Limitation 1: In a sense takes you out of the system, Does nothing to promote learning curve

      • Limitation 2: maintain multiple software

    • Add wizards

      • Limitation 1: more integrated with system but still has limited value-added to promote learning curve for system

      • Limitation 2: assumes no flexibility is a good thing because role of wizard is the end product, process is secondary to end product


Impediment difficulty to use report manager1

Impediment:Difficulty to use Report Manager

  • Challenges

    • Maintain the integrity of a single software

    • Maintain the integrity of the learning curve

  • Proposal

    • Embed automation of step-by-step guide in RM software

      • consistency between narrative description and automation

      • Learning on screen with goal of truncating the learning curve


Automated step by step guide

Automated Step-by-Step Guide

  • Create Indexes


Impediment methodological issues

Impediment:Methodological Issues

  • Database processing time

    • Proposal

      • Limit availability of directories

      • Limit availability of deleted data

  • Standardize matching of SOC to O*NET in Report Manager as best practice

    • Proposal

      • Establish best practice for non-residual occupations

      • How to handle residual occupations?
