Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit describes the performance outcomes required to assist professional and other personnel in the planning and design of new products or sub-assemblies.

It applies to those in an automotive environment.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)



Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

Elements

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section

1. Establish design requirements

1.1 New product design information is identified from customer needs and workplace requirements

1.2 Product information is gathered and analysed, and work plan is developed

1.3 Constraints on design concepts are identified and documented

1.4 Suitable strategies are developed to address identified design constraints

2. Create design concept

2.1 Initial design concept based on identified requirements is created

2.2 Function, physical requirements and impact of the design concept are reviewed with appropriate personnel

2.3 Modifications to the initial design concept are made according to feedback provided by engineering, marketing and other appropriate personnel

3. Produce concept sketches

3.1 Sketches are prepared to illustrate and explain proposed design concept

3.2 Concept sketches are reviewed and evaluated in consultation with engineering, marketing and other appropriate personnel and suitable changes are made

3.3 Critical dimensions and data of design concept are identified

3.4 Drawings of components and sub-assemblies are prepared with required level of accuracy

3.5 Materials, components and related costs are estimated in consultation with engineering, marketing and other appropriate personnel

4. Determine suitable manufacturing methods, materials and processes

4.1 Suitable manufacturing methods are identified for the production of components and sub-assemblies

4.2 Suitable manufacturing methods and materials are identified for the production of components and sub-assemblies

4.3 Suitable assembly and finishing methods for components and sub-assemblies are identified and evaluated

5. Evaluate feasibility

5.1 Proposed manufacturing processes are evaluated against the design requirements in consultation with design, engineering, marketing and other appropriate personnel

5.2 Suitable trials of the design are devised and conducted, and outcomes are documented

6. Modify design

6.1 Product design is suitably modified, based on the outcomes of the feasibility evaluations and trials

6.2 Further trials and testing is conducted to confirm the suitability of the modified design against requirements

6.3 Outcomes of the modification and trialling of the new design concept are documented according to workplace procedures

7. Complete work processes

7.1 Design of the new product is documented according to workplace procedures

7.2 Design documentation is processed for approval according to workplace procedures

7.3 Design documentation is stored and distributed according to workplace procedures


Submission Requirements

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

This section specifies work environments and conditions that may affect performance. Essential operating conditions that may be present (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) are included. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below.

Workplace requirements must include:

Australian Design Rules (ADR)

industry codes of practice

vehicle modification standards.

Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
