Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

MEM16008A Interact with computing technology
MEM30007A Select common engineering materials
MEM30012A Apply mathematical techniques in manufacturing, engineering or related situations

Course Description

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to represent the design of aeronautical engineering products, processes, systems or services using appropriate graphical techniques, specifications and documentation. Work would typically be carried out as part of a design or engineering support team.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

MEM09143A Represent aeronautical engineering designs

Element:

1 Clarify product, process, system or service design requirements

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Discuss and clarify the design specification of the required product, process, system or service with the client and design team

Element:

2. Apply graphical techniques to produce the initial product, process, system or service design representation

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Ensure the initial graphical representation satisfies the design specification, manufacturing and operational requirements, safety and related standards
2.2 Perform engineering calculations and use engineering references, standards and codes appropriately to determine dimensions, limits and fits, surface textures, datum references and geometric tolerances
2.3 Identify materials, manufacturing methods and processes for initial design representation
2.4 Prepare initial production graphics, specifications, and operating and maintenance instructions/manuals in accordance with the agreed design concept and organisational requirements using chosen graphical techniques
 

Element:

3. Validate the product, process, system or service representation

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Validate the product, process, system or service representation 3.1 Confirm suitability of the product, process, system or service design graphical representation with the client, other team members and organisational requirements

Element:

4. Develop, validate, implement and file design graphics and specifications and procedural documentation

Performance Criteria:

4.1 Prepare design graphics, specifications and instructions for the product, process, system or service in accordance with the agreed design concept and organisational requirements, and incorporate feedback on initial design graphics and documents
4.2 Check production graphics, specifications and instructions for the product, process, system or service with the client, design team and other affected persons for suitability prior to implementation
4.3 Respond to implementation installation and commissioning feedback in accordance with organisational requirements
4.4 Maintain validated production graphics, specifications and instructions for the product process, system or service throughout the implementation, installation and commissioning processes, and process and file in accordance with organisational requirements
 


Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Lecture, project and computer aided and/or manually drawings, presentation and project.


Teaching Schedule

Note: While your teacher will cover all the material in this schedule, the weekly teaching and assessment order is subject to change depending on class needs and availability of resources. The student needs to spend at least 10 hours to work on design project and portfolio preparation and at least 7 hours for project report preparation.

Overview of Assessment

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to represent the design of aeronautical engineering products, processes, systems or services for a range of general engineering applications. Competency in this unit cannot be claimed until all prerequisites have been satisfied.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment Tasks
Assessment task one - Portfolio (50%)
Assessment task two - Project report (40%)
Assessment task three-Poster (10%)
NB: This is a Competency assessed course. You must achieve competency for all Elements in order to achieve the competency. If you have achieved an overall competent result you will then be given a graded assessment:
