Plan and coordinate machining of panels

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 'Plan and coordinate machining of panels' 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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1. Plan machining operations

1.1 Interpret production orders and plan production of panel types and sizes.

1.2 Develop panel machining schedules to ensure optimum production outcomes.

1.3 Plan and document cutting patterns to maximise output and minimise wastage.

1.4 Communicate all information to operators in line with organisational procedures

2. Coordinate panel cutting operations

2.1 Identify and record variations in panel condition and report to operators.

2.2 Assist operators to resolve machining problems.

2.3 Monitor panel cutting processes; assess effectiveness of cutting pattern and ability to maintain schedule.

2.4 Modify cutting patterns and schedules to ensure optimum performance and communicate changes to operators.

2.5 Ensure machined panels are directed to designated area for storage or transferred for further processing.

2.6 Direct processes for rejecting and disposing of sub-standard machined panels and off-cuts in line with organisational safety procedures and environmental protection practices.

2.7 Complete and maintain operating logs and cutting records in line with organisational procedures.

2.8 Investigate and record major processing and equipment faults and resolve or report to appropriate personnel.

3. Evaluate machining performance

3.1 Monitor and evaluate panel cutting operations and output to determine process improvements.

3.2 Analyse systematic problems with equipment and panel quality for potential to improve machining processes.

3.3 Document recommended process improvements and communicate to appropriate personnel in line with organisational procedures.
