Participate in product engineering

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 'Participate in product engineering' 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 Identify and confirm specifications

1.1 Sample material or product is examined to confirm structure

1.2 Detail of structure or composition is documented, where required, to assist in production planning

2 Identify options for production

2.1 Evaluation of material or product structure is conducted to identify options for production

2.2 Options are assessed to determine most effective and efficient method of production, ensuring highest quality and yield from raw materials, and ease of production

2.3 Options and recommendations are documented in accordance with workplace practices and OHS practices

3 Identify potential machine or production changes

3.1 Existing resources, machines, production techniques and scheduling arrangements are examined in relation to the production requirements

3.2 Any potential requirements for change are identified and documented in accordance with workplace practices

4 Prepare cost estimates

4.1 Material requirements and economic batch sizes are identified

4.2 Labour hours, times and other statistics required are identified and estimates made

4.3 Available machine hours are determined and estimates made, where required

4.4 Overall costs are estimated and documented in accordance with workplace practices

5 Maintain records

5.1 Production planning records are maintained and reports prepared, where necessary, in accordance with workplace practices
