Course Description

This unit covers the use of drawings, diagrams, equipment and cable schedules and manuals as they apply to the various electrotechnology work functions. It encompasses the rudiments for communicating with schematic, wiring and mechanical diagrams and equipment and cable/connection schedules, manuals, site and architectural drawings and plans showing the location of services, apparatus, plant and machinery.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEE007B Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals

Element:

1. Prepare to use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Established OHS risk control measures and procedures are followed.
1.2 The need for drawings, diagrams, schedules or manuals is determined from the nature of the work to be undertaken.
1.3 Established routines and procedures are followed to obtain drawings, diagrams, schedules or manuals required for the work to be undertaken

Element:

2. Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals to obtain job information

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Drawings, diagrams, schedules and/or manuals are selected, appropriate to the work being undertaken.
2.2 Drawings, diagrams and schedules are interpreted using knowledge of drawing layouts, conventions and symbols
2.3 Dimensions are extracted from drawings and diagrams for application to work undertaken
2.4 Location of equipment is determined from equipment schedules and location diagrams
2.5 Manuals are reviewed to ascertain their format and where information relevant to the work to be undertaken is located
2.6 Information given in manuals is interpreted in relation to the work to be undertaken

Element:

3. Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals to convey information and ideas

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Drawing conventions are used in neat freehand drawings to convey information and ideas to others involved in the work to be undertaken
3.2 Drawing conventions are used to neatly correct freehand original job drawing to show final ‘as-installed’ arrangement.
3.3 Corrected drawings are forwarded to appropriate person(s) in accordance with established procedures.


Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Practical drawing exercises and project work which include the followings:
1. Architectural drawings : -
• Use standard drawing scales to determine the actual lengths represented by dimensions on an architectural drawing
• Read and interpret a floor plan to determine the location of the electrical/electronics/communication accessories and appliances
• Use Australian standard symbols on a floor plan to show the location of the accessories and appliances as detailed in an electrical schedule.
2. Electrical drawings:
• Identify and distinguish between block, circuit diagram
• Identify standard symbols used in representing components on electrical/electronic circuit diagrams.
• Identify cable type, origin and route from a cable schedule
3. Circuit diagrams :
• List the conventions used in and the features of circuit diagrams
• Sketch basic circuit diagrams
• Identify a range of symbols from Australian Drawing Standard
• AS/NZS 1102
• Connect equipment according to a circuit diagram and confirm the operation of the circuit.
4. Mechanical drawing:
• Describe the conventions used in drawings of mechanical components.
• List the basic abbreviations and symbols used in drawing of mechanical components.
• Identify mechanical components and their specifications from information in a drawing of the component
5. Freehand sketching :
• Layout a drawing of a mechanical component using engineering drawing convention.
• Draw freehand a mechanical component showing all information needed for its manufacturer/fabrication.
