PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard provides a broad introduction to understanding the processes of manufacturing, production and construction. It is the starting point for a learner in this sector. The focus is knowledge, skills, values and attitudes in relation to the learner`s own context and experience of the world of work.

The qualifying learner is capable of:
  • Explaining and describing the drawing route through the process
  • Explaining the process
  • Describing parameters in which material is used
  • Determining sizes, volume and mass of components within the drawing 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Learners accessing this unit standard will have demonstrated competence in mathematics, engineering science and technical drawing at NQF level 4 or equivalent.
  • Learners accessing this unit standard will have demonstrated competence in computer technology at Level 3 on the NQF or equivalent. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
  • Assembly process will include welded, bolted, riveted, bonded and screwed connections.
  • Drawing will include design drawing, assembly drawing, detailed drawing and general arrangement
  • The process will include production, fabrication, manufacturing and construction
  • The surface finish will include plastic coating, ultra violet (UV) protection, corrosion protection, fire protection, all in respect to location 

  • Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria:

    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    The relevant Education, Training, Quality Assurance Body (ETQA) will accredit providers offering learning towards this standard, and register assessors. 

    UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE 
  • A broad understanding of drawing office procedures and workshop practice
  • An all rounded understanding of surface finish procedures
  • A comprehensive understanding of material parameters and availability
  • A broad understanding of handling, transportation and installation requirements 


  • Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING 
    Identify and solve problems which have an impact on decisions about the process and type of components and production of the item being drawn 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING 
    Collect, evaluate, organise and critically evaluate information relating to the process involved in the drawing 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO SCIENCE 
    Use science and technology to assist in the determination of factors influencing the final drawing and product 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO DEMONSTRATING 
    Understand the world as a set of related systems by recognising that the factors involved in the process, form an integral part of the final drawing 

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    This unit standard has been replaced by unit standard 263014, which is "Demonstrate an understanding of production, manufacturing and construction processes as it affects the drawing", NQF Level 5, 3 Credits.

    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.
