Prepare and start up pulping system operations

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



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1. Determine production requirements

1.1 Identify production requirements to plan system operations and startup processes.

1.2. Determine grade type and flow rate for production and communicate to pulping system operators.

1.3. Determine availability and co-ordinate process supplies and supply systems to meet production requirements.

1.4. Confirm readiness of downstream facilities to receive pulping process product and by products.

2. Inspect and prepare systems for startup

2.1. Conduct system inspections and pre-start up safety checks in line with organisational safety and standard operating procedures.

2.2. Remove isolations and establish and confirm operational settings to required specification.

2.3. Set delivery systems for operation.

2.4. Check monitoring devices and alarm systems and confirm as operational.

2.5. Detect deviations from operational specifications and rectify or report.

3. Start up pulping operations

3.1. Activate and confirm pulping systems as operational.

3.2. Co-ordinate equipment startups for production.

3.3. Confirm production ready status to relevant personnel.

4. Stabilise system operations

4.1. Monitor operational parameters after startup to ensure pulping system operations are within specification

4.2. Sample and test pulp to verify product meets quality specifications.

4.3. Adjust system operational parameters to rectify variations from specifications.

4.4. Record system startup, operational and product quality data in operating log.
