Learning Outcomes

This unit requires the application of skills associated with self management to apply quality system instructions when performing a range of production tasks. Team work and communication skills are also required to understand impact of own work activities on others in the production process. This unit also requires an ability to apply problem solving skills, initiative and enterprise to identify and investigate faults or inconsistencies in work quality. Learning skills are required to continuously assess own work against required outcomes and gain the skills and knowledge required in order to meet quality standards.

Details of Learning Activities

Blended learning consisting of classroom activities and practical workshop.

Teaching Schedule

During weeks 15 – 18 Semester 1 2009

You will be given further information about the assessment tasks in class.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task 1:
Written Identification of a range of Quality standards, appropriate for footwear production, and the required measurements of these standards.

Assessment Task 2
Practical demonstration by students, that quality checks have been undertaken on their footwear components currently being produced in program. Results of quality checks and any quality issues that need addressing are appropriately recorded.
