Manage installation and commissioning of equipment and systems

This unit covers the skills and knowledge required to manage the installation and commissioning of equipment and systems used in a textiles, clothing and footwear (TCF) workplace.


This unit applies to the management of the installation and commissioning of equipment and systems used in a TCF workplace where significant judgement is required in planning, technical or supervisory activities related to operations or processes. The work may involve individual and team related activities, and can include liaison with specialist technicians or contractors. Work may be conducted in a large scale production or small business situation in a TCF sector

The unit may relate to on-shore or off-shore applications; it would include all local requirements and may include establishing a new production line.

The application of this unit is according to OHS practices of the enterprise and workplace practices, which may include:

requirements prescribed by legislation, awards, agreements and conditions of employment

standard operating procedures

work instructions

oral, written and visual communication

quality practices, including responsibility for maintenance of own work quality and contribution to quality improvement of team or section output


tasks related to environmental protection, waste disposal, pollution control and recycling

This unit requires the application of skills associated with communication to interpret specifications and technical information and prepare work-plans, budgets and contracts relating to equipment and systems. Knowledge of the technology is required to make assessments about commissioning processes and report and document information. Planning and organising, initiative and enterprise and problem solving are required to coordinate, problem solve and monitor installation processes and achievement of performance targets.
