Repair and fit engineering components

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 'Repair and fit engineering components' 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 scope of repair and/or fit required

1.1. Operational specifications for components are obtained from appropriate source and are interpreted and understood

1.2. Operation and condition of components are assessed against specifications

1.3. Faulty/worn components are identified

1.4. Causes of faults are determined using appropriate engineering principles, techniques, procedures, tools and equipment

1.5. Repair, replacement, adjustment or manufacture requirements are determined

2. Repair/replace faulty components

2.1. Where applicable, appropriate method of repair is determined

2.2. Where applicable, faulty components are repaired or adjusted to conform to specifications

2.3. Where applicable, replacement parts are selected from manufacturers' catalogues and assessed against specifications

3. Manufacture parts/components

3.1. Parts/component specifications are determined from appropriate source

3.2. Materials are selected to meet specification requirements

3.3. New components are produced in conformance to specifications using appropriate workshop practices

3.4. Completed components are inspected for compliance with dimensions

3.5. Where appropriate, component parts are marked for identification prior to assembly

4. Fit engineering components into assemblies or sub-assemblies

4.1. Fitting requirements and sequence of assembly are determined

4.2. Appropriate fitting principles and techniques are applied in the preparation and assembly of component parts using fastening equipment and methods which ensures conformance to specifications, operational performance, quality and safety

4.3. Using acceptable engineering practices, correct gland packing, jointing/gasket materials are selected and applied correctly in conformance to specifications and operational requirements

4.4. Correct lubrication requirements are determined by appropriate means and attended to where applicable

4.5. Final adjustments are performed on component assembly to meet operational specifications using acceptable engineering principles, fitting techniques and procedures

5. Check operation of repaired components/unit

5.1. Components/unit are checked under operational conditions for compliance to operational specifications using acceptable engineering principles to standard operating procedures

5.2. Out of specification modification/alterations are approved by appropriate authority and are recorded and documented to standard operating procedures

5.3. Final component assembly is commissioned and returned to service according to standard operating procedures
