Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Identify and select industry-specific technologies

1.1 Interpret organisational needs to design indicators against which industry technologies will be evaluated to determine suitability to the organisation including performance, useability and sustainability indicators

1.2 Research current industry-specific technologies to meet organisational needs

1.3 Evaluate and compare industry-specific technologies against indicators to the potential benefits of industry-specific technologies to the organisation against indicators

1.4 Select industry-specific technologies to address organisational needs

1.5 Acquire industry-specific technologies on the basis of the evaluation and in accordance with organisational procurement procedure

2. Implement industry-specific technologies

2.1 Consult with user to plan and evaluate the implementation of the industry-specific-technologies

2.2 Implement industry-specific technologies to address organisational needs

2.3 Check and adjust implementation of the industry-specific technologies to meet organisational needs and organisational workplace health and safety (WHS) compliance requirements

3. Obtain user feedback and evaluate industry-specific technologies

3.1 Seek and document user feedback on industry-specific technologies

3.2 Evaluate industry-specific technologies against indicators

3.3 Adjust industry specific technologies in response to user feedback and evaluation

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skill
