Performance Evidence

An individual demonstrating competency must satisfy all of the elements and performance criteria in this unit.

There must be evidence that the individual has adjusted cane delivery schedules to meet daily milling requirements in line with workplace contexts and demonstrated each of the following points at least once:

  • calculated and amended daily schedule bin allotments and bin allocations
  • applied workplace information to calculate zero hour
  • confirmed resources and personnel to meet amended schedule
  • coordinated and adjusted locomotive movements, and responded to update schedule
  • reallocated cane bin deliveries to harvesters
  • used communication systems and equipment
  • maintained workplace records.

Knowledge Evidence

An individual must be able to demonstrate the knowledge required to perform the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes knowledge of:

  • conditions that are unusual or unplanned, and options for response, including the implications of different options for maintaining the continuous and efficient supply of cane
  • communication systems, protocols and standards
  • purpose and use of a computerised traffic system
  • purpose and procedure for calculating zero hour
  • factors that can affect the calculation of zero hour, including:
  • factory performance, including planned and unplanned mill stops
  • weather
  • transport system delays, including locomotive/motor truck breakdown
  • availability of empty bins, taking into account mixed bin fleet if appropriate
  • availability of full-yard space
  • availability of empty-yard space
  • siding status
  • track infrastructure condition
  • harvester failure
  • factors that impact on efficient performance, including:
  • labour
  • crib breaks
  • holding locos
  • waiting time (last bin)
  • fuel use
  • loads
  • personnel to be notified of zero hour and related amendments to schedule, including the information relevant to each group/person
  • work schedule planning, including the inter-relationships between:
  • planned crushing rate
  • current stocks (yards and sidings)
  • yard and siding capacities
  • average bin weights
  • harvesting rosters
  • cut-to-crush delays
  • loco loads and performance
  • bin fleet size and availability
