In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Continuous improvement processes in high-speed production environments require that work processes and needs are constantly being reviewed and changed. This unit standard reflects the skills, values and knowledge required to manage several such changes occurring simultaneously with each project having different goals, different starting and ending dates and varying impacts on the production process overall.
The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Diploma in Maintenance of High-speed Production Processes (Fast-moving Consumer Goods): NQF Level 5 and related qualifications. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
The credits assigned to this unit standard assume that learners will learn what is needed for this unit standard as part of their learning for a range of related unit standards. If they have experience in these related activities but do not have credits for them, they can obtain credits by being assessed through a process that recognises prior learning. If they do not have such experience of related activities, then their learning time will be increased. Learners can choose to be assessed and obtain credits against those other unit standards as they make progress towards the outcomes of this unit standard.
Learners are assumed to have learned to mange single projects, can use and apply common project management principles, techniques and tools. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The scope and level of this unit standard is determined by the ranges as indicated under the specific outcomes. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1

    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.
