PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Starting up, monitoring, adjusting and shutting down a production line. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • This unit standard has been designed as part of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for activities at and above this level. The credits assigned to it are based on the assumption that I am learning what is needed for this unit standard as part of my learning for a range of related unit standards at this level or below it.
  • If I have experience in these related activities but do not have credits for them, I can obtain credits by being assessed through a process that recognises prior learning.
  • If I do not have such experience of related activities, then my learning time will be increased. I can choose to be assessed and obtain credits against those other unit standards as I make progress towards the outcomes of this unit standard. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    "Adjust and maintain production process" implies the active involvement of the learner in bringing the production line back into specification by responding to equipment indicators when deviations occur.

    Understanding confirmed:
    1. Implications of failing to carry out required adjustments during process
    2. Implications of failing to replace worn tooling on product produced
    3. Implications for accuracy of the misuse of instruments
    4. Consequences of materials spillage
    5. Respond to 'what if' and 'why questions about the relationships between equipment, materials, processes and final product 


    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    My assessment will be governed by the policies and guidelines of the MERSETA Education and Training Quality Assurer who has jurisdiction over this field of learning. My assessor will (at the very least) be accredited and have a technical qualification in this learning area.

    I can be assessed in the language of my choice although if I have to report incidents or conditions to someone else, I will be assessed on my ability to report in the language commonly used in my working environment.

    I will be assessed in the workplace but I can submit documents, projects, test results and assignments that were not produced in the workplace.

    I can be assessed against this unit standard to obtain credits or as part of an integrated assessment for a qualification.

    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 Quality Assuring Bodies 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 Quality Assuring Body should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
