3.  †††† prepares or directs the preparation of tables and charts


4.  †††† directs the gathering and analysis of data


5.  †††† interprets data and trends, summarizes results, and prepares reports for submission to university administrators or for publication


6.  †††† directs or performs the coding, testing, debugging, and documentation of mathematical computer programs for developed models (using linear, dynamic and/or stochastic programming techniques)


7.† †††† devises, recommends approval, and implements revised methods, procedures, and techniques of section


8.† †††† may supervise assigned personnel


9.  †††† performs other related duties as assigned
