Manage the civil works design process

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 'Manage the civil works design process' 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. Interpret and scope civil works design requirements

1.1 Access, interpret and apply Civil works design documentation and ensure the work activity is compliant

1.2 Obtain, read, interpret, clarify and confirm work requirements

1.3 Advise the client on the implications for sustainability and options for an improved environmental outcome in the project

1.4 Analyse the client requirements for the design criteria to ensure all appropriate specifications are included

1.5 Confirm that all development and implementation factors are accounted for

1.6 Prepare functional specifications applying engineering standards and the design specifications

1.7 Document and obtain the client’s agreement on the criteria

2. Identify civil works project design options and determine the preferred design option

2.1 Identify innovative approaches to the development of the design concept

2.2 Investigate and analyse the possible design concepts capable of achieving the design requirements

2.3 Seek advice from appropriate personnel and sources where the concept proposal has nonstandard engineering requirements or where new technology may apply

2.4 Collaborate with the client to adapt the design concept to improve the outcomes and overcome problems

2.5 Advise the client of the likely impacts on the community

3. Initiate, monitor and support the design of civil works

3.1 Analyse and select resources, processes and systems to develop the design

3.2 Arrange design tasks to meet the agreed outcomes and cost structure

3.3 Develop and check the design solution using the engineering specification

3.4 Create (when appropriate) a demonstration model of the design

4. Prepare and maintain documentation during the civil works design process

4.1 Establish the documentation management process

4.2 Ensure that the supporting documentation required to implement the design is accurate, concise, complete and clear

4.3 Ensure that the designed item is identified by agreed design documentation and records

4.4 Apply the agreed documentation control process when making changes to design

4.5 Ensure that the documentation for the design remains accurate and current during the design development

5. Review civil works design to achieve acceptance

5.1 Review the design to ensure that the client’s requirements are met

5.2 Inform the user of the likely impact on the user’s lifestyle

5.3 Incorporate corrections and make improvements to the design ensuring social responsibilities, such as sustainability are met

5.4 Review the design with the client to gain documented acceptance

6. Support the application of civil works designs

6.1 Prepare and implement plans to verify that completed physical work meets client’s requirements

6.2 Develop periodic test schedules to monitor performance and enable others to take any corrective action necessary

6.3 Seek feedback from the commissioning process to facilitate corrective actions or improvements

6.4 Evaluate the performance of the design outcomes in the user’s environment using appropriate tools

6.5 Evaluate community reaction to the design outcome
