Modification History

Release 1. Unit code, Title and Application changed. Title changed to more clearly reflect content. Installation and fitting element removed as this is covered in another unit. Content introduced to more explicitly define skills and knowledge for the lay out, marking and cutting stage of the production process. Elements and Performance Criteria restructured and simplified with Element 1 and 2 combined. Foundation Skills field populated. Range of Conditions removed with relevant information moved to Knowledge Evidence. Assessment Requirements clarified with generic foundation skills statements moved to appropriate section and duplication with Performance Criteria removed. Supersedes and is not equivalent to MSTTF2011 Cut and shape canvas or sail materials, MSTTF2010 Lay out and mark out canvas or sail materials, or MSTTF3007 Manufacture textile structures.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to plan the fabrication process, mark out and cut materials and fabricate textile products using methods such as sewing, welding or gluing. Textile products may be vehicle coverings, shade sails, awnings, marine canopies or blinds. They could be standard products or custom-made.

This unit applies to individuals working in accordance with pre-determined specifications and established procedures. They use discretion and judgement to plan and select processes to meet work outcomes.

No licensing or certification requirements exist at the time of publication. Relevant legislation, industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must be applied.

4.2 Use techniques to fabricate product based on specifications

4.3 Fit required attachments and accessories in accordance with specifications

4.4 Complete work systematically to achieve required detail and to minimise damage to goods and equipment

5. Check quality and finalise work

5.1 Inspect completed work, confirm that it meets the required standard and rectify any deficiencies

5.2 Label or tag completed products and complete production documentation in accordance with workplace procedures

5.3 Clean work area and perform routine equipment maintenance in accordance with workplace requirements and manufacturer specifications

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

  • Reading skills to interpret familiar workplace procedures and detailed product design documentation
  • Writing skills to communicate factual information in familiar workplace documents
  • Numeracy skills to take accurate measurements, and make calculations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, area, mass, perimeter, volume, scales and ratios.

Other foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit.
