Course Description

This unit defines the competencies required to represent the design of mechanical and manufacturing engineering products, processes, systems or services using appropriate graphical techniques, specifications and documentation. Work would typically be carried out as part of a design team.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

MEM09141A Represent mechanical engineering designs

Element:

1. Clarify product, process, system or service design requirements

Performance Criteria:

1.1. The design specification of the required product, process, system or service is discussed and clarified 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. The initial graphical representation satisfies the design specification, manufacturing and operational requirements, safety and related standards.

2.2. Engineering calculations were made, engineering references, standards and codes used appropriately to determine dimensions, limits and fits, surface textures, datum references and geometric tolerances.

2.3. Initial design representation identifies materials, manufacturing methods and processes.

2.4. Initial production graphics, specifications and operating and maintenance instructions/manuals are prepared 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. The suitability of the product, process, system or service design graphical representation is confirmed 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. Design graphics, specifications and instructions for the product, process, system or service are prepared in accordance with the agreed design concept and organisational requirements and incorporate feedback on initial design graphics and documents.

4.2. The production graphics, specifications and instructions for the product, process, system or service are checked with the client, design team and other affected persons for suitability prior to implementation.

4.3. Implementation installation and commissioning feedback is responded to in accordance with organisational requirements.

4.4. The validated production graphics, specifications and instructions for the product process, system or service are maintained throughout the implementation, installation and commissioning processes, processed and filed in accordance with organisational requirements.

Overview of Assessment

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to represent the design of mechanical and manufacturing 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.

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package.
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards.
Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor.
Feedback will be provided throughout the course.To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task
detailed under Assessment Tasks section of Course Guide Part B.
 


Assessment Tasks

Assessment Tasks

Assessment task one - Portfolio (50%)

Assessment task two - Project report (50%)

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:

All assessment tasks need to be succesfully completed to demonstrate competence.Courses
delivered in accordance with competency-based assessment, but which also utilise graded
assessment.
CHD: Competent with High Distinction
CDI: Competent with Distinction
CC: Competent with Credit
CAG: Competency Achieved – Graded
NYC: Not Yet Competent
