Develop, enter and verify programs for programmable logic controllers using ladder instruction set

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




Prepare to develop enter and verify program.


OHS procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood through established routines and procedures.


Established OHS risk control measures and procedures are followed in preparation for the work.


Safety hazards that have not previously been identified are reported and advice on risk control measures is sought from the work supervisor.


Control system scenario is determined from job specifications of the process/plant/machine to be controlled, and through consultation with appropriate person(s).


Equipment, software and testing devices needed to carry out the work are obtained and checked for correct operation and safety.


Installation of programmable controller is checked for compliance with regulations and job specification.


Develop control system and enter and test program.


Established OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.


Circuits/machines/plant are checked as being isolated where necessary in strict accordance OHS requirements and procedures.


Control solutions are developed and documented based on the specified control mode and using acceptable methods for designing control systems.


Developed control system is converted to an appropriate form, such as flow, state and ladder diagrams, using a personal computer and software applicable to the programmable controller into which the program is to be entered. (See Note 1)


Program is entered into the programmable control using a personal computer and appropriate software.


Entered instructions and settings are tested as meeting those specified in by the control system scenario.


Appropriate methods and tools are used to test control systems and operating faults and anomalies are identified and rectified. (See Note 2)


Methods for dealing with unexpected situations are selected on the basis of safety and specified work outcomes.


Verify, document and report programming activities.


OHS work completion risk control measures and procedures are followed.


Program is transferred from a programmable controller to an external medium for storage. (See Note 3)


Control system specification and program are documented in accordance with established procedures.


Work completion is reported and appropriate personnel notified in accordance with established procedures.

1. Example of control functions are derived timers (off delay, self resetting, constant duty cycle), reversible counters, cascading timers, cascading counters, combining timers and counters, internal relays/flags/markers, latching relays (set/reset), jump instructions, master control instructions, bit shift registers, scan time considerations, one shot, retentive (power fail) functions, simple step sequence instructions

2. Examples of control system testing methods and tools are monitor mode as an aid to fault finding, inbuilt hardware/software diagnostics and use of error codes.

3. Examples of storage mediums are IC storage, hard disks, servers .
