Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: September 2021

The unit applies to the automotive and related component manufacturing environment and involves application of skills and knowledge at a specialist level. These skills and knowledge are to be used within the scope of the person's job and authority.

This unit describes the application of the required skills and knowledge to conduct die coating.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)

Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the Performance Criteria, Required Skills and Knowledge, the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package.

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the following is essential:

location, interpretation and application of relevant information, standards and specifications

compliance with organisation safety policies and procedures and OHS legislation/regulations/codes of practice applicable to operations

compliance with organisation policies and procedures including quality requirements

safe and effective operational use of tools and equipment

communication and working effectively and safely with others

completion of the cleaning, coating, assembly, disassembly and inspection on a minimum of 10 dies, including rectification of minor defects on at least 5.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

assessment of the competency should take place in a safe working environment in a passenger motor vehicle manufacturing plant or simulated environment using tools/equipment/machinery required for the production process without undue disruption to the production process

assessment is to occur under standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance (over time and in a range of organisation relevant contexts) together with application of underpinning knowledge

assessment methods must be by direct observation of tasks and include questioning on underpinning knowledge to ensure its correct interpretation and application

assessment may be applied under project related conditions (real or simulated) and require evidence of process

assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competency is able not only to be satisfied under the particular circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances.

Submission Requirements

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

This describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.

Required skills

speak clearly and directly in order to inform team members of completed coating tasks

apply teamwork to a range of situations

solve problems particularly in teams in order to meet performance indicators

show initiative in adapting to changing work conditions or contexts particularly when working across a variety of work areas

access, interpret and apply information on relevant organisation policies, procedures and instructions, particularly to ensure heating processes are conducted in accordance with organisation and OHS requirements

manage time when planning, preparing and organising work priorities

take responsibility for organising own work priorities.

Required knowledge

workplace and equipment safety requirements

relevant organisation production quality standards

manufacturing and production techniques for vehicle metal components

thermodynamic principles

Automotive Industry terminology

tools and equipment types, characteristics, uses and limitations

die coating techniques and equipment

processes for the calculation of material requirements

material Safety Data Sheets

plans, drawings and specifications

materials handling, storage and environmentally friendly waste management

organisation safety policies and procedures

relevant Australian Standards.

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording in the Performance Criteria is detailed below. Add any essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts.

OHS requirements may include:

Legislation and regulations, organisational safety policies and procedures and may include: the use of personal protective equipment and clothing, rescue services, fire fighting organisation and equipment, first aid equipment, hazard and risk control and elimination, systems covering the use of hazardous materials and substances and manual handling procedures including lifting and carrying.

Organisationrequirements may include:

access and equity principles and practices

environmental management (waste disposal, recycling and re-use guidelines)

emergency and evacuation procedures

equipment use procedures

ethical standards

legal obligations

maintenance and storage procedures

organisational and site guidelines

policies and procedures relating to own role and responsibility

procedural manuals

quality assurance guidelines

quality and continuous improvement processes and standards

recording and reporting guidelines.

Appropriatepersonnel may include:

clients and managers



team leaders

team members.

Cost reduction initiatives may include:

continuous improvement programs

cost benchmarks

power conservation

productivity achievement

waste avoidance.

Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
