National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEH188A Design and develop electronics - computer systems projects


1. Prepare to design and develop electronics/computer systems projects.

Performance Criteria:

1.1 OHS processes and procedures for a given work
area are identified, obtained and understood.
1.2 Established OHS risk control measures and
procedures are followed in preparation for the work.
1.3 The extent of the proposed project development is
determined from the design brief or in consultations
with appropriate person(s).
1.4 Project work is planned to meet scheduled timelines
in consultation with others involved on the work
1.5 Resources required for the work are selected based
on compatibility with project requirements and
budget constraints.
1.6 Tools, equipment and testing devices needed to
carry out the work are obtained and checked for
correct operation and safety.


2. Design and develop electronics/computer systems projects.

Performance Criteria:

2.1 OHS risk control work measures and procedures are
2.2 Knowledge of devices and systems and compliance
standards are applied to the design
2.3 Alternative arrangements for the design are
considered based on the requirements outlined in the
design brief.
2.4 Safety, functional and budget considerations are
incorporated in the design.
2.5 Prototype hardware and/or software systems are
constructed and tested for compliance with the
design brief and regulatory requirements.
2.6 Prototype malfunctions are rectified and retested to
ensure effective operation of design.
2.7 Project design is documented for submission to
appropriate person(s) for approval.
2.8 Solutions to unplanned situation are provided
consistent with organisation policy.


3. Obtain approval for the design.

Performance Criteria:

3.1 The design is presented and explained to client
representative and/or other relevant person(s).
3.2 Requests for modifications to the design are
negotiated with relevant person(s) within the
constraints of organisation policy.
3.3 Final design is documented and approval obtained
from appropriate person(s).
3.4 Quality of work is monitored against personal
performance agreement and/or established
organizational or professional standards.

Overview of Assessment

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:

Assessment 1: Assignment

Weighting towards final grade (%): 20


Assessment 2: Project

Weighting towards final grade (%): 40


Assessment 2: Final Test

Weighting towards final grade (%): 40
