Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM05037C Perform geometric development

Application

This unit of competency has been developed for Engineering Tradesperson – Fabrication apprenticeship training and the recognition of trade-level skills in marking out general fabrications using geometric development techniques.

Marking out associated with geometric development is done to specifications interpreted from technical drawings and job specifications.

This unit applies in jobbing workshops and involves the development of templates and general fabricating using geometrical layout techniques.

Skills covered by this unit are generally applied in occupational and work situations associated with steel fabrication, boiler making or sheet metal work.

For skills required for marking out activities associated with general engineering and maintenance functions, see the following units:

  • MEM07005 Perform general machining
  • MEM12006 Mark off/out (general engineering)
  • MEM18006 Perform precision fitting of engineering components.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least two (2) occasions and include:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • examining detailed drawings for fabrication requirements and specifications, including materials, measurements and tolerances, joining methods, standards and code requirements
  • calculating allowances for fabrication and assembly
  • establishing and marking datum points
  • selecting and using parallel line, radial line and triangulation development methods with minimum material wastage and accurate dimensions
  • producing templates accurately and following storage procedures.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate the required knowledge for this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • safe work practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • specifications of work
  • tools and equipment
  • development preparation, methods and application
  • datum points
  • materials used for the preparation of templates
  • manufacturing allowance considerations
  • template development, labelling, identification and storage requirements
  • fabrication and assembly allowances
  • sources of data on fabrication and relevant standards and codes.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in performing geometric development at least to the level being assessed with relevant industry knowledge and experience
  • satisfy the assessor requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 or its replacement and comply with the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011, its replacement or equivalent legislation covering VET regulation in a non-referring state/territory as the case requires.
