Develop a levelled pull system for operations and 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

Elements and Performance Criteria


Analyse production systems


Acquire an 'as is' value map of the process for all major products


Separate repeated products from specials


Consult with production, maintenance, supervisory and management workforce on current production system and processes


Establish rate of flow required to meet customer demand


Identify process steps causing problems


Analyse inventories within process and determine causes of high inventories


Determine costs of problems and inventories


Develop improved flow sequence and future value map


Establish sequence


Identify equipment and processes which can be sequenced by co-location


Identify equipment which is not suitable for co-location


Identify pacemaker process


Establish/review location of equipment for desired sequencing


Initiate or develop flow system


Determine rate and variability of demand for product


Compare capability of flow sequence to demand rate and variability


Set flow rate to level demand at pacemaker and handle variability


Identify trigger for pacemaker process


Establish kanban system for other process parts


Balance the work


Determine target time per product


Standardise work processes and operations and establish procedures to monitor variation


Adjust product/batch production to balance work


Arrange for any required competency development of workforce


Arrange for implementation of system


Monitor operation of system and take appropriate action
