More than 70% of all engineering and technical personnel occupied this kind of work places by mid-1980 at industrial enterprises of the Tyumen region.Production functions of engineering personnel were regulated by staff regulations. For example, "Regulations" on the enterprise activities, activities in units included a section on the rights, duties and responsibilities of officers, especially the head. These regulations were general in nature and required detailed follow-up including job description.In addition, the USSR Council of Ministers decree or line ministries orders regarding individual groups of engineering and technical intelligentsia became the original rules of the activities. Thus, at the end of the 1970s Ministry of Agriculture developed and implemented "Regulation on agricultural activities, farm work and other agricultural enterprises." Duties and rights contained provisions defining the main directions of activity of agrarian technical intelligentsia. Among them - organization and brunch management, personnel selection and placement, adoption of evidence-based technological solutions, technical, organizational and economic problems of the current and long-term measures aimed at improving production efficiency.
