1.5 Confirm the documentation of business objectives, technical requirements, and the problem

2. Evaluate the impact of the technical requirements

2.1 Review business problems, opportunities and objectives

2.2 Confirm that the technical requirements are complete

2.3 Review the hardware, software and network requirements

2.4 Coordinate the investigation into the processes to be changed by the business solution

2.5 Review the evaluation document, on the impact of the technical requirements on the business

3. Produce technical business solutions

3.1 Confirm the technical solutions produced in response to problems and business requirements

3.2 Review the costs involved in implementing the solutions

3.3 Review the recommendation from a range of supplier products, to determine which one best meets the technical requirements

3.4 Review, and report on, the technical solutions addressing the business specifications, and provide recommendations against the business requirements

4. Document and validate the agreed solutions

4.1 Ensure the report is forwarded to the appropriate person for feedback

4.2 Manage the feedback and incorporate changes, as required

4.3 Coordinate the redistribution of adjusted reports to the appropriate person

  • Recognises, and interprets, complex technical and operational documentation, to determine and confirm job requirements

Writing

1.4, 4.2

  • Develops a broad range of material including reports, design solutions, technical specifications and recommendations in required formats, for a specific audience, using clear and detailed language in order to convey explicit information, requirements, and recommendations

Oral Communication

1.3, 1.4, 4.2

  • Articulates technically complex concepts and operational, and business-related, matters using the specific and relevant language suitable to the audience, and liaises with diverse personnel
  • Uses listening and questioning skills to confirm understanding for requirements

Numeracy

2.1, 2.5, 3.2

  • Uses mathematical formulas and calculations to estimate and plan project costs

Interact with others

1.1, 1.2, 4.1, 4.3, 4.4

  • Actively identifies the requirements of important communication exchanges, selecting appropriate channels, format, tone and content to suit the purpose and audience

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:

  • adapt technologies to specified technical solutions
  • use site design software and hardware
  • evaluate client specifications against accepted industry practices
  • produce technical solutions from business specifications
  • produce information that can be shared between businesses
  • apply design concepts to business solutions
  • produce technical reports
  • make recommendations, and offer optimum design solutions.

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 the business processes for a project
  • outline the client business domain, including the client organisation structure and business functionality
  • explain compatibility issues and resolution procedures
  • outline the configuration of internet protocol (IP) networks
  • describe the importance of customer and business liaison
  • summarise desktop applications and the operating system (OS), as required
  • explain the procedures for linking processes
  • outline project management methodologies and processes
  • explain security protocols, standards and data encryption
  • explain technologies, such as:
  • access networks
  • core networks
  • information and communications technology (ICT) network topologies
  • mobile cellular networks
  • network protocols and OS
  • optical networks and principles
  • radio frequency (RF) networks and principles
  • radio frequency identification (RFID) hardware and software
  • describe the development platform that provides the tools to build, and deploy, applications into target platform environments.

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 should be typical of those experienced in the programming and software development industry, and include access to:

  • the client’s functional requirements
  • business specifications
  • the database and simulation software
  • organisational guidelines
  • the network or computer layout
  • site-design software and hardware
  • information on a range of ICT business solutions.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
