- MEM11006B - Perform production packaging
Perform production packaging
Issue Date: December 2018
This unit typically applies in a production/process environment. It would normally involve packing of finished goods, including assemblies, sub-assemblies, individual or multiple components. This unit is not intended to apply in situations where simple interim packing, storage and/or stacking are undertaken in context of a production function.
Unit Weight: 2
This unit covers packaging and labelling of finished goods for storage or transport.
You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
This unit contains employability skills.
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.
The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.
Overview of assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to undertake production packaging and labelling of items.
Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit
Assessors must be satisfied that the candidate can competently and consistently perform all elements of the unit as specified by the criteria, including required knowledge, and be capable of applying the competency in new and different situations and contexts.
Context of and specific resources for assessment
This unit may be assessed on the job, off the job or a combination of both on and off the job. Where assessment occurs off the job, that is the candidate is not in productive work, then an appropriate simulation must be used where the range of conditions reflects realistic workplace situations. The competencies covered by this unit would be demonstrated by an individual working alone or as part of a team. The assessment environment should not disadvantage the candidate.
This unit could be assessed in conjunction with any other units addressing the safety, quality, communication, materials handling, recording and reporting associated with production packaging or other units requiring the exercise of the skills and knowledge covered by this unit.
Method of assessment
Assessors should gather a range of evidence that is valid, sufficient, current and authentic. Evidence can be gathered through a variety of ways including direct observation, supervisor's reports, project work, samples and questioning. Questioning techniques should not require language, literacy and numeracy skills beyond those required in this unit of competency. The candidate must have access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required. The candidate must be permitted to refer to any relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications, codes, standards, manuals and reference materials.
Guidance information for assessment
List each assessment task's title, type (eg project, observation/demonstration, essay, assingnment, checklist) and due date here
Assessment task 1: [title] Due date:
(add new lines for each of the 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.
Look for evidence that confirms skills in:
reading and interpreting routine information on written job instructions and standard operating procedures. May include simple drawings
determining packaging requirements from safety, storage conditions, site and legislative requirements
labelling packaged items
handling and storing products
using scanning devices, if required
following oral instruction
entering routine and familiar information on to proforma and standard workplace forms
orally reporting routine information
Look for evidence that confirms knowledge of:
labelling procedures and standards
storage and recording procedures
use and application of personal protective equipment
safe work practices and procedures
hazards and control measures associated with production packaging
The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.
Packaging methods include manual processes, semi automatic and fully automated packaging equipment
Procedures undertaken include standards, codes, legislative, company and customer requirements
Packaging material is generally determined from instructions, written or verbal
Storage conditions, site and legislative requirements
As per legislative requirements e.g. dangerous goods and storage of poisons acts and regulations
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.
