Create new product designs

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

Reference books for 'Create new product designs' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Establish design requirements

1.1. Instructions and plans are read and interpreted to identify processes and materials to complete work tasks

1.2. Information is assembled

1.3. Information gathered is analysed to develop key requirements needed in new design

1.4. Requirements of new design are documented

2. Identify constraints

2.1. Constraints on design concepts are identified and documented

2.2. Suitable strategies are developed to address identified constraints on designs

3. Create design concept

3.1. Initial design concept based on identified design requirements and constraints is created

3.2. Function, physical requirements and impact of the design concept are reviewed in conjunction with relevant stakeholders

3.3. Modifications to the initial design concept are made in accordance with feedback provided by relevant stakeholders

4. Produce design concept

4.1. Sketches are prepared to illustrate and explain proposed design concept(s)

4.2. Concept sketches are reviewed in consultation with relevant stakeholders and suitable changes made in accordance with a critical evaluation of the proposed design

5. Quantify design concept

5.1. Critical dimensions and data of the design concept are identified and quantified

5.2. Drawings are prepared to required accuracy to enable suitable manufacturing methods to be identified and evaluated

5.3. Draft product specifications are prepared in accordance with company procedures

6. Determine suitable methods, materials and processes

6.1. Components and sub-assemblies are drawn in accordance with design requirements

6.2. Suitable manufacturing methods are identified for the production of components and sub-assemblies to meet design requirements

6.3. Identified manufacturing methods for components and sub-assemblies are evaluated in conjunction with engineering staff

6.4. Suitable assembly and finishing methods for the purpose product design are identified and evaluated

7. Evaluate feasibility

7.1. Proposed design and the manufacturing processes are evaluated against the design requirements in conjunction with relevant stakeholders

7.2. Suitable trials and tests of the design are devised and conducted in conjunction with relevant stakeholders

8. Modify design

8.1. Product design is modified if necessary, based on the outcomes of the feasibility evaluations and trials

8.2. Further tests are conducted to confirm the suitability of the modified design against the identified design requirements

8.3. Outcomes of the modifications and testing of the new design concept are documented

9. Document design

9.1. All documentation requirements for the proposed new product design and associated manufacturing processes are identified

9.2. Design documentation is processed for approval

9.3. Design documentation is stored and distributed
