Plan and monitor production processes

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

1.2 Confirm characteristics of the resources under production

1.3 Obtain recent and historical data from organisational records for input to production planning

1.4 Identify potential for improvements or innovations to inform production planning

1.5 Identify production processes required to achieve the targeted production and compare with those that currently exist

1.6 Use production planning information as input to other organisational planning processes

1.7 Establish appropriate biosecurity and Quality Assurance requirements

2. Determine monitoring requirements and systems

2.1 Establish targets for each production unit from the organisational management and strategic plans

2.2 Schedule production taking varying organisational factors into consideration

2.3 Establish and include environmental sustainability controls in the production plan

2.4 Establish monitoring points and performance indicators using target, environmental management and scheduling information

2.5 Develop and use risk management strategies when necessary

3. Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of production processes

3.1 Ensure that performance indicators, targets and specifications are met and amendments to the process are made where necessary
