Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit describes the performance outcomes required to apply quality assurance techniques required in an automotive manufacturing environment.

It involves the application of skills and knowledge during the design, development and production of automotive plant, tools, equipment and systems at a production worker level.

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. Interpret and apply workplace quality standards

1.1 Instructions and plans are interpreted to identify processes and materials to complete work tasks

1.2 Workplace quality standardsare interpreted and applied to work tasks

1.3 Process improvement tools are used either individually or in a team to identify design, development and production quality problems

2. Monitor and report on quality

2.1 Finished materials and products are checked for quality against workplace quality standards and according to workplace procedures

2.2 Non-conforming materials and products are identified and reported

2.3 Quality problems are analysed to identify the root cause using analytical tools

2.4 Strategies to improve quality are developed and recommended according to workplace procedures

Before competency can be determined, individuals must have competently applied quality standards on a minimum of three occasions.

Individuals must demonstrate they can:

comply with workplace production standards and quality assurance techniques

apply workplace procedures relating to quality assurance techniques

communicate effectively with team leaders and team members to ensure quality assurance

document quality improvement activity and techniques

complete quality improvement reports.

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

quality processes

workplace procedures relating to quality assurance techniques

process improvement tools

processes and procedures for implementing quality improvement activities, including:

processes and required resources from a quality improvement plan

identifying and allocating tasks from the quality improvement plan

recording and reporting procedures for monitoring progress of quality improvement plan activities

types, layout and application of quality improvement activity reports.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the application of quality assurance techniques.

Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.

The following resources must be made available:

automotive manufacturing workplace or simulated workplace

tools, equipment and machinery required when producing motor vehicles

workplace procedures relating to quality assurance techniques

quality improvement plan

process control plans (PCPs) or workplace equivalent.


Submission Requirements

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.
