Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSS405040A Manage 5S system in an organisation

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include the ability, across an organisation or department/section, to:

  • encourage and monitor a systematic approach to implementing 5S
  • analyse areas and records for evidence of 5S conformance/non-conformances
  • manage non-conformances in implementation of 5S
  • lead and motivate others in achieving 5S outcomes and making improvements to the 5S systems.

Knowledge Evidence

Must provide evidence that demonstrates sufficient knowledge to interact with relevant personnel and be able to manage 5S systems, including knowledge of:

  • organisation operations and structure
  • principles of efficient workplace organisation
  • purposes and methodology of 5S
  • operation procedures relevant to jobs in the organisation
  • relevant regulatory requirements
  • processes for identification of skill gaps
  • methods of addressing skill gaps
  • ways of encouraging team leaders and operators to find and suggest areas for improvement
  • methods of making/recommending improvements
  • methods of accessing required resources
  • non-conformance, what they are, assessment of severity and action to be taken.

Assessment Conditions

  • The unit should be assessed holistically and the judgement of competence shall be based on a holistic assessment of the evidence.
  • The collection of performance evidence is best done from a report and/or folio of evidence drawn from:
  • a single project which provides sufficient evidence of the requirements of all the elements and performance criteria
  • multiple smaller projects which together provide sufficient evidence of the requirements of all the elements and performance criteria.
  • A third-party report, or similar, may be needed to testify to the work done by the individual, particularly when the project has been done as part of a project team.
  • Assessment should use a real project where initial introduction of, or ongoing implementation and continuous improvement resulting from 5S occur in an operational workplace.
  • Knowledge evidence may be collected concurrently with performance evidence or through an independent process such as workbooks, written assessments or interviews (provided a record is kept).
  • 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.
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications associated with this unit.
  • Foundation skills are integral to competent performance of the unit and should not be assessed separately.
  • Assessors must satisfy the assessor competency requirements that are in place at the time of the assessment as set by the VET regulator.
  • The assessor must demonstrate both technical competency and currency.
  • Technical competence can be demonstrated through:
  • relevant VET or other qualification/Statement of Attainment AND/OR
  • relevant workplace experience
  • Currency can be demonstrated through:
  • performing the competency being assessed as part of current employment OR
  • having consulted with an organisation providing relevant environmental monitoring, management or technology services about performing the competency being assessed within the last twelve months.
