Abstract
Time-Span of Discretion (TSD) proved to be a statistically valid indicator of military work-level and could be measured in most work-roles. Where measurement was not possible, problems of organization or management were found. The TSD data provided information about the forces. The present rank structure has more levels than can be used effectively by any of the three.. Because of environmentally dictated organizational differences, a common rank structure in the forces cannot be optimum for each environment. Individuals reach conclusions about fair-pay for military work differently than for civilian work. Consequently, it is not valid to treat military personnel simply as civilians in uniform for pay considerations. Morale suffers when rank and pay structures do not match, or when service personnel must fill positions established established at higher rank than their own.
