Produce centrifugally cast polyurethane products

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




Performance criteria describe the required performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

1. Prepare to centrifugally cast polyurethane materials.

1.1 Interpret materials specifications.

1.2 Identify required materials, including additives and curatives.

1.3 Identify required equipment, including handling, control and material preparation equipment.

1.4 Identify materials and process hazards and plan for their elimination.

1.5 Locate and make ready appropriate safety equipment.

2. Plan centrifugal casting operations.

2.1 Confirm product and process parameters.

2.2 Ensure environmental controls are valid and in place according to operational procedures.

2.3 Identify product to be made and calculate quantity of material required to produce product of correct shape and physical dimensions.

2.4 Determine product colour and obtain appropriate agents.

2.5 Plan the sequence of events from availability of the material to stripping of the final product.

2.6 Obtain appropriate mould coating and releasing agents.

3. Set up and check centrifugal casting equipment.

3.1 Inspect and set up centrifugal casting equipment.

3.2 Ensure that mould is secured or adequately restrained to prevent separation of mould and rotational equipment.

3.3 Test run horizontal cylindrical moulds to ensure vibration free running.

3.4 Ensure work area is clean and free from hazards, and check operational sequence and procedures, particularly OHS procedures, codes and practices.

3.5 Test and confirm that equipment control settings, stop and emergency stop functions are operational.

3.6 Test run rotational equipment to assess equipment conformance to specification.

4. Centrifugally cast polyurethane products.

4.1 Following the planned sequence, identify and operate equipment according to temperature, time, rotational speed and emergency procedures.

4.2 Pour materials at the appropriate rate per minute, angle and quantity using necessary aids and assistance to ensure pour is completed within required times and distribution requirements and using techniques to prevent excessive aeration.

4.3 Check product quality including thickness, weight and product integrity, against specifications.

4.4 Deal with material waste and scrap in accordance with workplace procedures.

4.5 Store unused materials, clean up equipment, apply lubricants, make adjustments and manage waste in accordance with workplace procedures.

5. Anticipate and solve problems

5.1 Recognise a problem or a potential problem.

5.2 Determine problems needing priority action.

5.3 Refer problems outside area of responsibility to appropriate person, with possible causes.

5.4 Seek information and assistance as required to solve problems.

5.5 Solve problems within area of responsibility.

5.6 Follow through items initiated until final resolution has occurred.
