|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
A person acquiring this qualification will be able to plan work processes to ensure that (a) production line(s) operate effectively within the performance requirements of the manufacturing unit, lead people within a production environment to ensure organisational objectives are achieved, maintain health, safety and quality control standards, organise, control and continuously improve a production process in the South African manufacturing context to enable the unit and the organisation to remain competitive in the global market place.
The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this qualification are essential for the creation of a talent pool of production experienced and effective first line managers that represents the demographics of the South African society.
This qualification will create a leadership cadre for the manufacturing industry that will be able to apply in the workplace the skills and knowledge acquired.
This qualification reflects the needs of the Manufacturing Industry for a person with first line management skills and with a sound knowledge base and experience of production and manufacturing. A generic first line management qualification is not conceptualised to the specific needs of manufacturing with regards to management of materials, problem-solving in a manufacturing context and integration and coordination of multiple activities to optimise a production process.
The learners will typically be first line manufacturing managers with an automated production process. The Manufacturing industry has identified the need to develop a pool of management talent to enable organisations to implement integrated systems and management processes to become internationally competitive and a choice is given to enable the learner to specialise with a contextualised manufacturing area.
This qualification will ensure that the levels of skills in the South African Manufacturing environment will be enhanced and that learners completing this qualification will be able to manage a production line at a standard comparable with the rest of the world. The qualification, although developed specifically for the food and beverage industry also provides the flexibility to articulate to other manufacturing environments such as fast moving consumable products, pharmaceutical, chemical, motor assembly, wood milling and a packaging environment.
The level of flexibility within the range of electives will allow the individual to pursue some further specialization within human resources management, training and development, general management, senior manufacturing management or packaging technology development.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|It is assumed that learners are already competent in:
> 120366: "Demonstrate understanding of the implementation of occupational health, safety and environmental legislation in the work place", Level 4.
> 10981: "Supervise work unit to achieve work unit objectives (individuals and teams)", Level 4.
> 14586: "Monitor and control quality control practices in a manufacturing/engineering environment", Level 4.
Recognition of prior learning:
This qualification may be achieved in part or completely through the recognition of prior learning, which includes formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.
Access to the qualification:
Access to the qualification is open bearing in mind the learning assumed in place.
|RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?|
> 36 credits must be chosen from the unit standards addressing Manufacturing Efficiencies and Processes.
> 21 credits must be chosen from the additional Elective unit standards.
|EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES|
|1. Plan work processes to ensure that production lines operate effectively within the operational requirements of the manufacturing unit.
2. Lead people within a production environment to ensure organisational objectives are achieved.
3. Maintain health, safety, quality control and environmental standards during the production process.
4. Organise, control and continuously improve a production process in the South African manufacturing context to enable the unit and the organisation to remain competitive in the global market place.
|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
Integrated assessment provides the opportunity for learners to show they are able to integrate concepts actions and ideas achieved across a range of unit standards and contexts. Integrated assessment must evaluate the quality of competence attained by the learner.
The learner, being found competent to achieve the exit level outcomes of the qualification will be assessed competent and be awarded the qualification. This will ensure that learning and competence are not achieved only in the building blocks of the unit standards but also in the integration and application of the fundamental core and elective building blocks to a particular context i.e. the exit level outcomes.
|Benchmarking was done against the AQF from Australia, NVQ from England, the Scottish NVQ and the NQF from New Zealand.
The National Qualifications Framework (NVQ) for England, contains the following equivalent qualifications in Manufacturing Management:
The Certificate incorporates units as mandatory in Analytical methods, Business Management, Project Management, Manufacturing Design, Business Improvement, and managing the work of the individual.
These qualifications relate almost identically to the National Certificate and the present National Diploma, again where elements of management, engineering and world-class manufacturing are incorporated into one vocational qualification.
The Scottish qualification authority have a qualification at level four, that is titled the Certificate in Manufacturing that incorporates team leadership and manufacturing skills.
The New Zealand Qualification Authority has two qualifications that mirror the ladder of learning in South Africa namely:
The Certificate has units that include:
The Diploma includes the following units:
Again outcomes based qualifications for people at work that combine the concepts of engineering, lean production, and management.
The Australian Qualification Framework incorporates within their federal system qualifications from each of their federal states.
In New South Wales the Sydney Institute of Business and Technology offers a Certificate and Diploma in Manufacturing that incorporates elements of operations management and business management. Units of analytical techniques, plant design, industrial engineering, as well as people management, cost and management accounting and leadership.
Further the University of Technology of Sydney offers a Certificate in Engineering and Business that has a "purpose to match management, business and manufacturing skills in an holistic engineering qualification.
In Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology offers a Certificate in Engineering and Business that also incorporates management and manufacturing skills.
The qualification covers the same processes although the design of a qualification and a Unit of learning within the South African context differs from the Australian design.
|This qualification allows for both horizontal and vertical articulation.
Horizontal articulation can occur with:
Vertical articulation can occur with:
Anyone wishing to be assessed against this Qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA.
