Required Skills and Knowledge

Not applicable.

Evidence Guide

The Evidence Guide identifies the critical aspects, knowledge and skills to be demonstrated to confirm competency for this unit. This is an integral part of the assessment of competency and should be read in conjunction with the Range Statement.

Critical aspects of evidence 

Identify requirements of task and organise work to achieve goals and results.

Apply safety requirements throughout the work sequence, including the use of personal protective clothing and equipment.

Research information and share it with others in the team.

Contribute to the design of products through discussion.

Encourage excellence in performance of team/group members.

Suggest improvements to design activities and, where authorised, negotiate changes.

Modify activities to cater for variations in workplace cultures and environment.

Work effectively with others.

Underpinning knowledge 

Company operating procedures, including procedures for developing design concepts

Design core and professional practices

Ergonomic principles for furniture design and manufacture

Operation requirements of equipment and work systems in own work area

Competency requirements of the work activities

OH&S requirements

Underpinning skills 

Information. Research, collect, organise and understand information related to the design, including the relevant technical, regulatory, cultural, environmental and safety requirements.

Communication. Communicate ideas and information to enable clarification of the requirements, co-ordination of work with other workers and customers, and the reporting of work outcomes and problems.

Planning. Plan and organise activities, including the obtaining of systems and materials to avoid any back tracking, workflow interruptions or wastage.

Teamwork. Work with others and in a team by recognising dependencies and using co-operative approaches to optimise workflow and productivity.

Mathematical ideas and techniques. Use mathematical ideas and techniques to correctly complete measurements and calculations required to support the design activity.

Solve problems. Create and apply systematic problem solving techniques to anticipate problems, avoid reworking and avoid wastage.

Use of technology. Use the workplace technology related to design, including drafting tools and equipment, calculators and measuring devices and computing/computer-aided systems.

Resource implications 

Design development team, design concepts and access to R&D agencies/capabilities.

Method of assessment 

Assessment methods must confirm consistency, or the potential for consistency, of performance over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts.

Assessment should be by direct observation of work, portfolio evidence and questioning on underpinning knowledge.

Assessment may be conducted over time and in conjunction with assessment of other units of competency.

Context of assessment 

Assessment may occur on the job or in a simulated workplace facility with relevant equipment, simulated work instructions and deadlines.
