Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Performance Criteria 

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Manage receipt and dispatch of spare parts

1.1 Obtain relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards, and follow work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements for given work

1.2 Identify hazards and make worksite safe according to relevant safety legislation and company work practices, and use personal protective equipment

1.3 Unload, unpack and store incoming spare parts using appropriate methods and enterprise procedures, and check off delivered items on documentation

1.4 Package, label and relocate outgoing spare parts ready for dispatch using enterprise procedures

1.5 Update parts database to reflect current spare parts movements and holdings, following each dispatch or delivery, and complete any other administrative task required by enterprise

2. Store spare parts

2.1 Label spare parts using appropriate identification scheme and place in predefined storage locations

2.2 Observe antistatic precautions when handling equipment susceptible to damage by electrostatic discharge

2.3 Display, maintain and update material safety data sheets (MSDS) on site

3. Manage stock flow

3.1 Action spare parts requests by checking database for availability and location, and organise the dispatch

3.2 Monitor levels of spare parts stock by examining database reports against enterprise usage and replenishing stock when necessary

3.3 Investigate and keep records of alternative suppliers of spare parts to minimise impact of availability and cost issues with regular suppliers

3.4 Monitor spare parts with limited shelf life, and dispose of and replace when necessary

3.5 Audit spare parts holdings for ready supply of items to minimise disruptions to job completions

3.6 Update database from appropriate documentation each time a store’s transaction occurs to maintain validity of data
