Required Skills and Knowledge

REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills 

  • OHS in relation to operating machinery such as safely switching off machinery before cleaning is started
  • communication skills when reading and interpreting job requirements from job documentation or production control system
  • planning and organising by shutting down equipment in the correct sequence
  • teamwork when maintaining production processes in association with colleagues
  • using technology by producing double-faced web on the corrugator
  • problem solving by selecting and checking a sample from the machine to ensure it conforms to the required quality standards

Required knowledge 

  • significant risks that are posed to workers in this activity
  • measures that are employed to prevent injury and/or illness in the case of the above identified risks
  • principle support systems on line to the corrugating machine
  • effective control and monitoring of the corrugator by the operator
  • sections of the double backer that have the higher potential for operational problems during the run
  • product faults that are commonly found to arise during production runs and how can they be corrected

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence of the following is essential:

  • perform runs on the double backer machine, maintain production, identify and rectify problems and faults, and correctly shut down the machine
  • perform at least TWO runs on the double backer to produce TWO different types/classes of product, according to manufacturer's and job specifications, enterprise procedures and the listed Performance Criteria
  • evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure:

  • assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these. Assessment off the job must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment
  • in-line double backer corrugating equipment.

Method of assessment 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.

Guidance information for assessment 

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, for example:

  • ICPCF2106C Set up double-faced web
  • ICPCF220C Produce basic converted or finished product
  • ICPCF231C Set up machine for basic flat-bed cutting
  • ICPCF235C Set up machine for basic rotary cutting
  • ICPSU201C Prepare, load and unload reels and cores on and off machine.

Range Statement

RANGE STATEMENT 

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Machines  may include:

  • range of corrugating machines with manual, semi-automated and fully automated process control systems.

Substrate handling  may include:

  • wide reel handling systems.

In -line processes  may include:

  • range of wax and coating systems operations, slitters and cutters. Note that slitting and cutting may be separately assessable as flat-bed or rotary cutting.

Substrate types  may include:

  • range of substrates within the major categories of board or paper.
