Learning Outcomes

This course is integrated with LMTFD4011A Cut Fabrics for Prototype Designs and LMTFD4007A Conduct Quality Assurance for Pattern and Garments, to meet customer specifications to form a cluster called ‘Production Prototypes.’

Students will learn a range of skills in a simulated work environment. Including the skills and knowledge required to assemble a range of prototype garments using different sewing machines and equipment.

Overview of Assessment

Tasks that have not been authenticated in class as the student’s own work will not be considered for assessment. REGULAR ATTENDANCE IS NECESSARY
Assessment is based on observation of class work, students demonstrating skills to develop a range of different prototype garments and submission of garment for assessment. Students to demonstrate the skills required to:
• Set-up and use a range of sewing machines and related equipment safely following work specific processes.
• Develop a ranges of prototype garments
• Maintain appropriate documentation for development process according to workroom procedures
