Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Unit code and title changed. Application changed. Elements and Performance Criteria changed. Range of Conditions removed. Assessment Requirements changed. Supersedes and is equivalent to PMBPROD245 Fabricate materials.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to fabricate shaped assemblies using polymer sheeting, rods or bars.

This unit applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team.

The unit principally refers to a largely manual assembly process for all kinds of rubber and plastic and usually involves the use of jigs and fixtures of special designs.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

Nil

Competency Field

Production – Plastics Fabrication

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Check work requirements

1.1 Identify requirements, including plans, patterns and designs from job specifications

1.2 Perform housekeeping tasks to prepare for work to be undertaken

2. Conduct pre-production checks

2.1 Perform pre-operational checks including checking for and acting on hazards

2.2 Set up tools, jigs, fixtures and equipment to support fabrication process

2.3 Undertake other pre-production checks including ensuring availability of safety equipment

3. Form materials to shape

3.1 Arrange materials in order they will be required according to work requirements

3.2 Form material into shape, using required fixing or joining methods, according to job specifications

3.3 Measure and check product against specifications, making adjustments to meet expected quality

3.4 Trim and finish joints and fabricated product according to job specifications

3.5 Accurately complete logs and records

3.6 Apply waste management strategies to collect and segregate scrap, trim and other materials according to workplace procedures

3.7 Clean equipment and work area according to equipment specifications and workplace procedures

4. Respond to process control variances

4.1 Recognise and log process control variances and their causes

4.2 Determine, prioritise and implement remedial and preventative actions based on identified issues and causes

4.3 Accurately maintain records and logbooks

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance.

  • Numeracy skills to interpret technical information.
  • Reading skills to interpret specifications and workplace procedures.
  • Writing and oral communication skills to record and report on rubber or plastic fabrication operations.

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