Apply basic just in time systems to the reduction of waste

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 'Apply basic just in time systems to the reduction of waste' 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. Identify potential to eliminate waste in the current system

1.1. Value chain members are identified.

1.2. Principles of waste elimination are applied to each step in the value chain.

1.3. Current storage/inventory in value chain is analysed for excesses.

1.4. Production lead time is analysed for all components, sub-assemblies and assemblies subject to JIT including potential for set up time reductions.

1.5. Kanban cards and flow authorisation indicators are analysed for appropriate quantity.

1.6. Workplace layout is analysed for flow and application of housekeeping principles.

1.7. Production process is analysed for excess rework and scrap.

2. Draft workable procedures to implement improvements to JIT system

2.1. Key internal stakeholders are liaised with to develop solutions to JIT issues.

2.2. Key external members of the value chain are liaised with to develop solutions to JIT issues.

2.3. Key measures for improvements are determined.

2.4. The plan is referred to a higher authority for approval in accordance with policy and procedures.

3. Implement the JIT system/improvements

3.1. The JIT system/improvements are implemented according to workplace procedures.

3.2. Key measures of JIT are monitored.

3.3. Regular liaison is conducted with key stakeholders seeking areas for improvement.
