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. Review and confirm information requirements and existing models

1.1 Review information requirements and clarify areas that are not understood

1.2 Identify organisational standards for developing models, and check the model development method for consistency with organisational goals

1.3 Identify assumptions and incorporate into modelling process

1.4 Identify goals and resolve into tasks required to be performed to obtain goals

1.5 Define internal tasks needed to perform identified goals

2. Resolve conflicts and inconsistencies

2.1 Identify missed opportunities arising from previous and current model development

2.2 Identify bottlenecks, overlooked functionalities and other issues, and resolve with client input as required

3. Build and test model

3.1 Develop model based on existing architecture

3.2 Document details of model, according to agreed project or organisational standards

3.3 Develop model according to project deliverables and acceptance criteria within determined timeframe and project constraints

3.4 Test model against the test plan

3.5 Document test data to ensure that test procedures validate performance of the model

4. Ensure that the model represents a workable solution

4.1 Ensure a consensus view of key information and communications technology (ICT) stakeholders is represented in model

4.2 Ensure model is checked by key ICT stakeholders to confirm common knowledge of the model and the proposed solution

4.3 Submit model to appropriate person for sign-off

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

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:

  • use two or more development tools
  • develop specific areas of a system for further information or to confirm a software or hardware direction
  • identify opportunities for expansion of the model
  • test the model to a test plan.

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 the client business domain in relation to the organisational structure
  • summarise current industry-accepted hardware and software products and standards
  • explain modelling techniques and methodologies
  • outline a range of development and test tools
  • explain systems development methodologies.

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 network industry and include access to:

  • acceptance criteria
  • client requirements
  • future organisational business processes
  • organisational and process goals
  • project budget
  • project deliverables
  • standards for model development
  • technical specifications
  • a test plan.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
