The unit applies to the automotive and related component manufacturing environment and involves application of skills and knowledge at a production worker level. These skills and knowledge are to be used within the scope of the person's job and authority.
Elements and Performance Criteria
1. Read and interpret working drawings and work orders
1.1. Symbols, codes, legends and diagrammatic representations are correctly recognised
1.2. Product/system/component/item represented is correctly identified
1.3. Information represented is correctly understood
2. Initiate work order for production
2.1. Processes to be used are identified
2.2. Material requirements are identified
2.3. Production processes are initiated in accordance with organisation requirements
This describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.

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:
compliance with relevant legislative, regulations, standards, codes of practice and establish safe practices and enterprise policies and procedures for managing personal work priorities
maintaining a working knowledge of current work systems and practices
working and communicating effectively and positively with others involved in the work
applying, within authority, the requirements of the job or work role in relation to:
achieving production goals
achieving work quality goals
responding positively to changing work requirements
contributing effectively to cost reduction initiatives
effectively applying problem solving techniques
modify activities to cater for variations in workplace context and environment
read and interpret work drawings/work orders
establish job processes and material requirements.
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 workplace 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.
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.
