Internet of Things (IoT)

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. Prepare to install devices

1.1 Establish and confirm IoT device and network task requirements

1.2 Determine and document different environmental factors in which sensors and IoT devices will be deployed

1.3 Gather and document IoT device programming requirements according to business need

1.4 Determine and document organisational IoT security requirements

1.5 Determine remaining networking, software and installation architecture requirements

1.6 Lodge documentation according to organisational requirements

2. Install devices

2.1 Install required networks according to technical specifications

2.2 Connect IoT devices to network according to specifications

2.3 Configure required sensors and determine operational needs aligned to specifications

3. Finalise device installation

3.1 Test connectivity of networks against technical specifications

3.2 Test device connectivity against specifications

3.3 Determine and document required system upgrades according to organisational requirements

3.4 Lodge documentation according to organisational requirements

Foundation Skills

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

S KILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Learning

  • Monitors outcomes of decisions, considering results and identifying key concepts and principles that may be adaptable in the future

Numeracy

  • Uses mathematical formulae to calculate required equipment, undertake measurements and determine response times

Oral communication

  • Articulates information and requirements, using effective communication techniques and industry standard technical language intended for audience and environment

Reading

  • Interprets technical, manufacturer and organisational documentation to determine and confirm job requirements

Writing

  • Prepares required documentation expressing ideas requirements and recommendations for specific audiences according to organisational procedures

Planning and organising

  • Uses a formal, logical planning processes together with an increasingly intuitive understanding of context

Problem solving

  • Analyses context to recognise anomalies and subtle deviations to normal expectations, focusing attention and remedying problems as they arise

Self-management

  • Takes end-to-end responsibility for identifying and considering relevant organisational protocols and requirements
  • Uses systematic processes, setting goals, gathering required information and identifying and evaluating options against agreed criteria

Technology

  • Demonstrates an understanding of principles, concepts, language and practices associated with the digital world

Unit Mapping Information

No equivalent unit. New unit.
