Overview of Assessment

Various assignments and practical exercises throughout the course 100%


Assessment Tasks

Assessment 1 – Project

To be competent in this unit the candidate must be able to plan a mechanical drive system, draw a mechanical drive system and document an implementation plan for a mechanical drive system. This assessment will focus on your ability to identify and describe mechanical drive system elements and terms. You will be able to describe these elements and represent these elements in terms of drawings and symbols according to AS1100.

This will involve:

• Graphics communication and manual drawing
• Calculation of power and torque requirements
• Calculation of belt and chain drive systems according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection of bearings and their mountings according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection of gears, brakes, clutches, couplings according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection and specification of keys and keyways design situations in accordance to AS1100
• Selection of limits and fits for particular engineering design situations in accordance to AS1100

The project will be submitted in a typical formal method of technical presentation. It may be word processed or audiovisual and may be done as a small group (2-3 persons)

This project will have a weighting of 40% of the final overall assessment mark.


Assessment 2 – Final Test (Open Book)

This assessment will focus on your ability to plan and set up a mechanical drive system.

This will involve:

• Graphics communication and manual drawing
• Calculation of power and torque requirements
• Calculation of belt and chain drive systems according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection of bearings and their mountings according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection of gears, brakes, clutches, couplings according to manufactures specifications and methods
• Selection and specification of keys and keyways design situations in accordance to AS1100
• Selection of limits and fits for particular engineering design situations in accordance to AS1100


This test will have a weighting of 60% of the final overall assessment mark.
