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 
People who are responsible for co-ordinating activities related to equipment set up and production runs in tyre component manufacturing require the skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard. Qualifying learners will understand the importance of effectively co-ordinating the activities of a workgroup and how this is achieved. This will include identifying problems and taking corrective action.

The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Tyre and Tyre Component Manufacturing (NQF Level 3) and related qualifications.
