Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM07024B Operate and monitor machine/process

Application

This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to operate and monitor a machine and process and applies to a range of production operations or continuous processes.

The work is performed in accordance with clear step-by-step instructions and procedures documented on job sheets or similar process instruction documents.

Operational adjustments to the machine or process by the operator are made using external controls. Basic operation (excluding setting and tool adjustments) of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines is also covered by this unit.

Where operational maintenance is required to be performed unit MEM07001 Perform operational maintenance of machines/equipment should also be selected.

Where the interpretation of technical drawings is required unit MEM09002 Interpret technical drawing should also be selected.

Where production packaging and labelling of the finished goods or product is required unit MEM11006 Perform production packaging should also be selected.

Where the selection and use of engineering measurement is required unit MEM12023 Perform engineering measurements should also be selected.

Where the selection and use of tools is required unit MEM18001 Use hand tools and unit MEM18002 Use power tools/hand held operations, should also be selected as appropriate.

This unit should not be selected with any of the following units unless the skills of this unit are being applied to an additional and different type of machine and or process:

  • MEM04001 Operate melting furnaces
  • MEM04002 Perform gravity die casting
  • MEM04003 Operate pressure die casting machine
  • MEM04006 Operate sand moulding and core making machines
  • MEM06001 Perform hand forging
  • MEM06002 Perform hammer forging
  • MEM08001 Perform wire, jig and barrel load/unload work
  • MEM08004 Finish work using wet, dry and vapour deposition methods
  • MEM08008 Operate and control surface finishing waste treatment process

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

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM07024B Operate and monitor machine/process

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
  • interpreting machine/process instruction and setting up for production
  • conducting pre-start checks
  • operating the machine or process, loading and unloading in accordance with procedures
  • following emergency procedures, as required
  • completing production data onto applicable workplace forms
  • monitoring the machine or process, identifying any faults or out-of-specification operation and reporting, as required.

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)
  • machine pre-start checks
  • machine or process start-up and unloading procedures
  • component/feed stock levels to ensure continuous process
  • production recording and reporting requirements
  • types of product faults and deviations
  • consequences of improper handling and storing of finished work
  • procedures to be followed in emergency situations.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in operating and monitoring machine and process 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 replacementor equivalent legislation covering VET regulation in a non-referring state/territory as the case requires
  • Where possible assessment must occur in operational workplace situations. Where this is not possible or where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment must occur in a sufficiently rigorous simulated environment that reflects realistic operational workplace conditions. This must cover all aspects of workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications
  • Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.
