Skill 

Performance Criteria 

Description 

Reading

1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, 3.2, 4.1-4.3

  • Interprets and analyses text with complex terminology, diagrams, code, syntax, icons and symbols to evaluate current system functionality and technical requirements, and develop diagrams using industry specific software

Writing

1.1-1.3, 2.1-2.3, 3.1-3.4, 4.4, 4.5

  • Uses the correct spelling and grammar, clear plain English, task related terminology, and a formal document structure, format and style appropriate to the audience and organisation
  • Selects suitable vocabulary, terminology, labelling and naming conventions to develop diagrams using industry specific design tools

Numeracy

1.2

  • Interprets numerical information and applies basic mathematical calculations relating to time durations and budgetary information

Navigate the world of work

1.1, 1.3, 2.3, 3.4

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • identify and document high level component specifications relevant to the project specifications
  • analyse and document component connectivity and relationships
  • document and review component modelling.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline appropriate design tools and their use
  • discuss and explain configuration management
  • outline the key features of a cost-benefit analysis
  • identify and apply current industry accepted design methodologies and hardware and software products, including broad knowledge of general features and capabilities
  • explain data modelling techniques
  • describe program development methodologies
  • describe quality assurance practices for preparing component models
  • outline relevant standards and organisational policies
  • specify current system functionality for analysing components.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the general information and communications technology (ICT) industry, and include access to:

  • technical specifications
  • organisational and process goals
  • standards for model development
  • computer aided software engineering (CASE) tools
  • project deliverables
  • test plan
  • project budget
  • outcomes of the business analysis process
  • appropriate software and hardware.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
