Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to LMTFD4011B Cut fabrics for prototype designs

Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge to lay up, make marker and cut work for sample designs where only a couple of garments would be cut out at a time, as required by the designer to test design or pattern.

The unit of competency applies to situations where single garments or only a couple of layers of fabric may be cut. The marker may be developed directly on the fabric lay or planned separately and applied. Cutting tools and equipment would include dress maker's shears, electric cutting tools and rotary cutters.

Work may be conducted in small to large scale enterprises and may involve individual and team activities.

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 LMTFD4011B Cut fabrics for prototype designs

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:

  • reading and following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • applying relevant standards
  • checking work against work specification or cutting order, and workplace practices and setting up equipment
  • making markers involving patterns, fabrics and lays using manual or computer techniques
  • preparing cutting table and work before commencing cutting operations
  • using, lay-up, marking and cutting tools and equipment to cut at least two (2) different fabrics to meet required specifications
  • checking cut fabric and assessing quality of the product and equipment performance
  • responding appropriately to imperfections or faults
  • storing master copy of lay marker in filing drawer or computer.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence must be provided that demonstrates knowledge of:

  • safe work practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Australian Standards for patterns and garment construction
  • patternmaking principles and procedures
  • lay-up and marking equipment:
  • computers and required software
  • patterns
  • fabric
  • marker card or paper
  • weights
  • clamps
  • computer operations involved in marker making, copying and storage
  • marking requirements:
  • fabric type
  • width
  • quantity
  • garment sizes
  • pattern identification
  • fabric characteristics and prototype faults
  • quality standards and fabric/garment handling procedures

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • satisfy the assessor competency requirements that are in place at the time of the assessment, as set by the VET regulator
  • have vocational competency in cutting fabrics for prototype designs, at least to the level being assessed, with relevant industry knowledge and experience.
  • Assessment should 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 reflecting 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.
