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

Automation Concepts 1 and
Automation Concepts 2

Industrial Control Application 1 and
Industrial Control Application 2

Course Description

To enable students to design and construction of Mechatronics project, diagnose a malfunctioning control circuit and eliminate possible causes of system interruption, edit PLC control program, write relevant documentations for faultfinding, commissioning and machine operation.
This learning unit is delivered in conjunction with Industrial Control Application 1 and Industrial Control Application 2.

This learning unit is one of a group of units designed to collectively meet underpinning skill & applied knowledge essential for developing the following Core Competency –

UTE NES 304 bA – Undertake commissioning of advanced systems and associated apparatus – Electrical

which is contained in the National Electrotechnology Training Package UTE99

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UTENES304BA Undertake commissioning of advanced systems & apparatus


o 304.1 Plan & prepare to undertake commissioning procedures
o 304.2 Undertake commissioning procedures of advanced systems and associated apparatus
o 304.3 Inspect and notify completion of work

Performance Criteria:

• Work Performance Simulations

These projects have to demonstrate the applied knowledge required to meet assessment criteria and technical requirement specified in the following competency standard:

UTE NES 304 bA – Undertake commissioning of advanced systems and associated apparatus – Electrical
o 304.1 Plan & prepare to undertake commissioning procedures
o 304.2 Undertake commissioning procedures of advanced systems and associated apparatus
o 304.3 Inspect and notify completion of work

When performing the simulations, students must demonstrate ability to:

o Organise and manage the tasks within the simulations
o Cope with any contingencies that arise during the simulations and solve inherent problems
o Perform tasks autonomously and/or as a member of a team as task proscribes
o Perform task and manage work environment/equipment according to safe working practice and OH&S requirements.
o Meet assessment criteria, conditions and technical requirement relevant to the competency standard detail above.

• Practical exercises

These will be assessed progressively according to individual task criteria. All laboratory exercises must be:
o Undertaken according to safe working practice as specified by the Centre.
o Performed according to specified laboratory standards and practice including calibration, measurement and accurate reading. This must include electrical measurement taken with safe working practice, meters properly calibrated, meter settings positioned for an accurate reading and accurate readings taken for all measurements.

• Progressive and Validation Tests

Theoretical concept underpinning measurement and testing procedures will be assessed progressively in tests throughout the unit. A written/oral validation test will also apply to aspects of projects done in groups

Learning Outcomes

Details of Learning Activities

Students will participate face to face in

• Classroom tutorial activities to consolidate the principles and concepts of project management process, tracking project progress, computerise scheduling, project specification, project presentation and report writing. The project may include problem solving, research into the latest trends of technology, report writing and classroom presentation activities.

An important characteristic of this module is the opportunity it presents for self directed learning. There may be need for some formal delivery on topics such as project planning, estimation, costing, evaluation etc, but in the main, the student will work under limited direction. Use may be made of a learning contact.

• Work performance simulation projects It provides the opportunity to develop the skills in integrating knowledge and practical skills, it may include writing project specification, client interaction, assessment of needs, planning, analysis and research, circuit design and simulation, programming and debugging, project construction, establish testing procedure to verify the specification, diagnosis of faults in the systems and completion of the commission. Specifications will be provided with work performance simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace based application
Projects may be undertaken as part of a team or individual basis.

It is expected that students would require approximately 20% of course hours to be allocated for independent study to do project research, design, construction, testing and problem solving activities.

Teaching Schedule

self paced,  project based learning activities involve: design, programming, faults-finding and diagnostic, commissioning and documentatiof of works
