4.1.1 Factors That Impact Quality. TTJA quality is directly linked to two critical factors:
(a) assembling a team of two to six subject matter experts, 1 supervisor, and 1 safety engineer/specialist, and (b) using a trained TTJA facilitator. A trained TTJA facilitator (one who has been trained in the methods of table-top job analysis) is required to maximize effectiveness of the job analysis. Without both factors, the resulting analysis is questionable at best.
Some general conventions associated with TTJA are listed below:
1. The coordinator/facilitator is qualified through training and practical experience.
2. Team members are subject matter experts (SMEs).
3. Supervisors that are on the team are SMEs as well.
4. The same team members participate throughout the entire session
5. Tasks statements meet the criteria for acceptable task statements
4.1.2 Table-Top Job Analysis Team Member Roles. For TTJA to be successful, the team that is put together must operate together as a team. Each member must be aware of his/her role and responsibilities while on a TTJA team. Observers are welcome but must not participate as team members.

The purpose of this Handbook is to establish general training program guidelines for training personnel in developing training for operation, maintenance, and technical support personnel at Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear facilities. TTJA can be used for needs, job, and task analysis, but the focus of this Handbook will be on job analysis. Department of Energy (DOE) Orders 5480.18B, Nuclear Facility Training Accreditation Program and 5480.20A, Personnel Selection, Qualification and Training Requirements for DOE Nuclear Facilities, stress the importance of training programs that are based on a systematic approach. An integral part of any systematically-developed training program includes an analysis of the jobs to be performed. TTJA is one "systematic" method of many that can be used by DOE contractor organizations to obtain high quality job analysis.
