This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This standard is in the core category of the NQF Level 5 National Diploma in Footwear technology. Learners assessed competent against this standard will be able to analyse and experiment engineering processes through engineering new and replacement parts, experimenting with alternative methods, testing methods and analysing down time. Learners involved in any elective area will use this standard. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Learners will have attained the NQF Level 4 National Certificate in Footwear technology. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The standard applies to all processes within clicking, closing, making, bottoms, finishing and dressing, and pattern cutting and design. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Engineering new and replacement parts to enhance machine capacity. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
1. Engineering drawings are clearly understood and produced showing parts and cost effectiveness. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
2. New and replacement parts are engineered in accordance with standard operating procedures to enhance machine capacity. 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
Experimenting with alternate methods to improve cost efficiencies. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
1. Alternate methods are sourced and experimented with to investigate a possible improvement of cost in accordance with industry norms. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
2. Changes implemented in order to optimise machine usage is demonstrated in compliance with manufacturers specifications and standard operating procedures. 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
Testing methods to improve machine optimisation. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
1. Engineering methods are researched, improved and implemented in accordance with standard operating procedures in order to optimise machine usage. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
2. New testing methods are recorded according to standard operating procedures where they can be sourced at a later state. 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 4 
Analysing down time to determine cause and extent. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
1. Analytical reports to determine cause and effect, are produced in compliance with standard operating procedures. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
2. Down time is greatly minimised where analytical reports are adhered to at all times. 


UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
