Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices
The MSS30312 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices specifies the competencies required to apply competitive systems and practices to oneâ€™s own work as well as, where required, to assist others to apply competitive systems and practices to their work.
This qualification provides a mixture of introductory and more advanced skills in competitive systems and practices. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies.
This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in a personâ€™s own work role or the efficiency of a team or work area. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production, maintenance, logistics, administration or other technical skills to industry. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training Packages should be considered.
The skills in this qualification are often known in industry under a variety of titles many of which relate to manufacturing which is the origin of many competitive systems and practices. The most common term is lean manufacturing. However, other names for some of the system skills and techniques include agile manufacturing, lean operations, six sigma, lean six sigma, and so on.

The qualification can also apply to tradespersons in a maintenance or production role.
This qualification can apply to an individual applying competitive systems and practices to their own work or where a person has responsibility for facilitating the application of competitive systems and practices to a work area or to the work of a team. The team may be a permanent, formally designated team or be a project team implementing competitive systems and practices.
