Elements of Competency Performance Criteria              
Element: Identify production requirements
  • Workplace health and safety requirements, including personal protection needs, are observed throughout the work
  • The item to be produced is identified from a work order
  • Production requirements are identified from specifications, an existing item or from drawings, patterns and/or templates
       
Element: Design jig
  • Design of proposed jig or fixture is produced
  • Production process incorporating jig is planned
  • Materials to be used to construct jig are selected
       
Element: Construct jig
  • Appropriate tools and equipment are selected
  • Jig is constructed as per design and within tolerances
       
Element: Test jig
  • Jig is used to produce prototype to ascertain its adherence to set tolerances and to assess its match to original design
  • Jig is adjusted as required to meet the requirements
       


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.

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the Performance Criteria, Required Skills and Knowledge, the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the relevant Training Package.

Critical aspects of evidence

Interpret work order and locate and apply relevant information

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

Follow work instructions, operating procedures and practices to:

prevent damage to materials, equipment or products

maintain the required production output and quality

identify and apply all OHS requirements

Produce a minimum of two jigs required to create complex fine furnishing items, including a moving jig

Produce a fixture in accordance with acceptable industry tolerances

Modify activities to cater for variations in workplace contexts and environment

Work effectively with others

Resource implications

Access to item specifications, design support facilities, jig construction materials, machinery, equipment and hand tools appropriate to the jigs to be produced.

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/or samples of work and questioning on underpinning knowledge.

Assessment should be conducted over time and will generally 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.


Submission Requirements

List each assessment task's title, type (eg project, observation/demonstration, essay, assignment, checklist) and due date here

(add new lines for each of the assessment tasks)


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 describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.

Required skills

collect, organise and understand information related to jig and fixture design, construction and testing, including the relevant technical, regulatory, environmental and safety requirements

communicate ideas and information to enable clarification of the requirements, coordination of work with site supervisor, other workers and customers, and the reporting of work outcomes and problems

plan and organise activities, including the preparation and layout of the worksite and the obtaining of equipment, systems and materials to avoid any back tracking, workflow interruptions or wastage

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

use mathematical ideas and techniques to correctly complete measurements, calculate area and dimensions, create accurate and scaled designs, and estimate material requirements

create and apply systematic problem-solving techniques to anticipate jig and fixture design, construction and testing problems, avoid re-working and wastage

use the workplace technology related to the jig and fixture design, construction and testing, including tools and equipment, calculators and measuring devices and computing/computer-aided systems

Required knowledge

machine technical specifications, including the acceptable criteria for related jigs

impact of design changes on jig construction

characteristics, uses and limitations of materials used for jig/fixture construction

jig and fixture design, construction and testing techniques

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 in the Performance Criteria is detailed below. Add any 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.

Unit scope

This unit applies to the design, construction and testing of jigs required for manufacture, assembly, construction and testing of furnishing items

The employee requires only general supervision in the execution of duties and has discretion in selecting techniques, processes and procedures in the production process

Unit context

OHS requirements include legislation, building codes, material safety management systems, hazardous substances and dangerous goods codes and safe operating procedures

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

Work requires individuals to demonstrate conceptual ability, discretion, judgement and problem solving skills in the completion of this competency

Workplace environment

Competency may be demonstrated in workplaces which are involved in or provide support for the manufacture and restoration of a wide range of furniture and furnishing items and components

Work is generally performed individually, but may be in a team environment

Customers or suppliers may be internal or external

Tools may include, but are not limited to:

routers

spindle moulders

panel saws

copy shapers and radial arm saws

Materials are to include:

solid timbers and manufactured board and may include composites

Personal protective equipment

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

Information and procedures

An enterprise work order which may be raised in response to a customer order, a modification to an item of production, or a new product line of the enterprise

Product drawings, prototype, design brief, patterns, specifications and/or specifications

Machine manufacturer specifications and operational procedures

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

Workplace procedures relating to reporting and communicating

Quality and Australian standards and procedures

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.
