Elements and Performance Criteria

  1. Identify object to be drawn
  2. Establish drawing criteria and limitations
  3. Quantify and draft initial drawing
  4. Complete drawing

Required Skills

Required skills

collect organise and understand information related to drawings work orders plans and safety procedures

communicate ideas and information to enable confirmation of work requirements and specifications and the reporting of drawing outcomes and problems

plan and organise activities to avoid any back tracking or workflow interruptions

work with others and in a team by recognising dependencies and using cooperative approaches to optimise workflow

use mathematical ideas and techniques to correctly complete measurements calculate area perimeter volume mass scales and ratios and estimate material requirements

use prechecking techniques to anticipate drawing problems and avoid reworking

use the limited workplace technology related to drawing tools equipment calculators and measuring devices

Required knowledge

furniture design and planning criteria

structural geometry

measurement techniques and equipmenttools

the theory and practice of calculations addition subtraction multiplication division

the types techniques and processes of manual production drawing

the types of computeraided drawing equipment software techniques and processes

conventional signs and markings for drawings

Evidence Required

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

Critical Aspects of Evidence

Identify the factors and criteria relevant to the drawings

Apply safety requirements throughout the work sequence including the use of personal protective clothing and equipment

Communicate effectively to enable accurate drawings

Prepare production drawings of furniturefurnishings

covering a scope of at least three products

applying both manual and computeraided techniques and processes

Resource Implications

Information on the subjects for drawing suitable work area appropriate to the activity computeraided drawing systems measuring calculating and recording devices

Method of Assessment

Assessment methods must confirm consistency of performance over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts

Assessment should be by direct observation of tasks and questioning on underpinning knowledge

Assessment should be conducted over time and may be in conjunction with assessment of other units of competency

Context of Assessment

Assessment may occur on the job or in a simulated workplace facility with relevant equipment simulated work instructions and deadlines

Range Statement

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.

Scope of drawing

Drawing is to be limited to that used for manufacture/ production purposes and is not to encompass original design concepts

Drawing is to be completed using both manual and computer-aided design techniques and processes

Unit scope

Drawings are to be in metric scale and cover all dimensions of the furniture and furnishings


Calculations are to be performed both manually and with the aid of a calculator

Unit context

Workplace health and safety requirements may include OH&S legislation, building codes, material safety management systems, hazardous substances and dangerous goods codes and local safe operating procedures

Work is carried out in accordance with legislative obligations, environmental legislation, relevant health regulations, manual handling procedures and organisation insurance requirements

Personal protection equipment

Personal protective equipment is to include that prescribed under legislation, regulation and enterprise policies and practices

Information and procedures

Work procedures relating to production drawing

Work instructions, including job sheets, plans, drawings and designs

Workplace procedures relating to reporting and communication

Manufacturers' specifications and operational procedures
