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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver PMBTECH601B, 'Develop a new product'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Develop a new product' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
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. Confirm design brief of new product.
1.1 Communicate with customer and other key stakeholders and agree on; technical specification, aesthetic requirements, timelines, cost, and other market requirements.
1.2 Determine regulatory/industry code/intellectual property requirements for product.
1.3 Identify possible tooling/process/equipment need
1.4 Develop design brief, including relevant drawings, to meet needs.
1.5 Obtain 'sign off' on total design brief from all relevant persons.
2. Determine material requirements for product.
2.1 Select appropriate base polymer grade/polymer blend or range of polymers/grades for evaluation.
2.2 Select type(s) of reinforcement and other additives needed
2.3 Determine material testing and evaluation regime required to meet product end use requirements, including regulatory/ industry code requirements.
2.4 Arrange for compounding, testing and evaluation of trial materials.
2.5 Interpret material trial results and guide material trial process.
2.6 Determine final materials specification.
3. Determine process requirements for product.
3.1 Select appropriate process to make product based on appropriate factors
3.2 Determine any special process/equipment requirements for this product.
3.3 Communicate with production personnel to determine their concerns and/or special needs.
4. Ensure process needs for new product have been met.
4.1 Liaise with tool/ die/ mould/equipment design/procurement personnel.
4.2 Interpret hardware specifications and ensure they are appropriate for the job required.
4.3 Liaise with process personnel to ensure appropriate draft procedures for new product have been developed.
5. Trial new product through the process.
5.1 Design trialing procedure to deliver required information.
5.2 Ensure OHS and environmental requirements are stringently observed.
5.3 Coordinate the trialing of the new product.
5.4 Interpret product trial results and guide product trial process.
5.5 Tune process to optimise production of new product.
6. Determine process capability.
6.1 Plot appropriate statistical process control charts.
6.2 Determine 3 sigma confidence limits.
6.3 Compare confidence limits with product specification.
7. Coordinate product trials.
7.1 Determine product testing and evaluation regime required to meet end use requirements, including regulatory/industry code requirements.
7.2 Arrange for testing and evaluation of trial product/prototype.
7.3 Interpret product trial results and guide product trial process.
7.4 Determine final product specification.
7.5 Make required changes to materials, process and equipment.
8. Implement standard procedures for new product.
8.1 Monitor initial production and adjust process, conditions and materials to make the process a smooth operation.
8.2 Ensure process specifications reflect the optimised operation developed.
8.3 Ensure standard operating procedures are correct for the new product.
8.4 Ensure equipment and other hardware records are updated to reflect additions/changes.
8.5 Ensure project records are complete and all required reports have been completed and submitted.
8.6 Archive records according to company procedure.
