For GS-07: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-05. Example of specialized experience is performing industrial engineering tasks of limited scope and difficulty which are screened by a higher grade engineer.
For GS-09: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-07. Example of specialized experience is performing independent industrial engineering, modeling, and simulation studies/surveys of projects analysis and modeling for recurring assignments which gradually increase in difficulty and complexity designed to increase as well as broaden knowledge of industrial engineering, modeling and simulation pertinent to the organization.
For GS-11: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-09. Example of specialized experience involves professional knowledge of industrial engineering principles and concepts, and the ability to apply the full range of engineering practices, methods and techniques in the performance of a wide range of industrial engineering assignments.
For GS-12: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-11. Example of specialized experience involves providing professional industrial engineering support to trades and crafts shops and advises management and/or production officials on the most effective standards, processes, methods, systems and procedures to be used in accomplishing mission and goals.
For GS-13: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-12. Example of specialized experience involves research, develop, and/or applying different modeling and statistical techniques or numerical analysis for operational use, develops modeling and statistical applications, specific algorithms, and/or models using those algorithms to reflect an operational problem.
For GS-14: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-13.
