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. Establish configuration management requirements

1.1 Establish identification standards for naming and version control of system, network, software and documentation to align with organisational needs

1.2 Establish tools and procedures for the required level of integration into the programming, system or network environment

1.3 Determine responsibilities for configuration management within the project and for ongoing support, including approval of changes

1.4 Determine the appropriate points for configuration of particular items

2. Establish control mechanisms

2.1 Establish methods for identification and recording of change requests in line with organisational guidelines

2.2 Establish acceptance criteria, test and acceptance processes and processes for approval of change requests in line with organisational guidelines

2.3 Establish security, access and management control criteria and quality benchmarks

2.4 Determine necessary audit trails and alerts for variations or non-conformance

3. Establish monitoring mechanisms

3.1 Establish mechanisms to identify software status throughout the software life cycle, or the status of the system or network during upgrading or reconfiguration

3.2 Determine management of records and status reports, including the history of baselines and their links to backups

3.3 Define target audiences and determine the level of detail required in the status reports

3.4 Integrate configuration management into general project management processes for monitoring and control purposes

3.5 Document control and monitoring mechanisms

4. Manage the release of the product to clients

4.1 Determine physical and functional completeness of items prior to release

4.2 Determine requirements for formal control of software products and documentation

4.3 Determine policies for retention of baseline and master copies in line with safety, security and legislative requirements and organisational guidelines

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:

  • develop technical and administrative procedures for use during the software life cycle, system or network reconfiguration or the upgrade process, including:
  • quality processes
  • audit trials
  • version control
  • configuration management procedures.

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:

  • explain benchmarking methodologies
  • outline configuration management
  • summarise control mechanisms, such as acceptance criteria, test and acceptance processes, and security, access and management control criteria
  • explain monitoring mechanisms
  • identify and describe standards, benchmarks and organisational guidelines that impact on management protocols
  • outline project planning methodologies and tools
  • summarise quality assurance and quality processes
  • clarify safety, security and legislative requirements
  • explain software 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:

  • Computer aided software engineering (CASE) tools
  • future organisational business processes
  • organisational standards for documentation and version control
  • project budget and timeframe
  • project management process and hierarchy
  • legislation and organisational guidelines
  • technical specifications
  • test plans.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
