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 
This unit standard is intended for a person who has to monitor a tissue conversion process and has to coordinate work on a tissue conversion process.

A person credited with this unit standard is able to:
  • Plan and organise operational and maintenance work tasks.
  • Manage the availability of resources.
  • Maintain records.
  • Coordinate routine production and maintenance tasks.
  • Ensure the optimal performance of the operation.

    This will ensure that the monitoring and coordination of a tissue conversion operation is performed in accordance with safe and accepted work practices. This competence will enhance the learner's employability and career options in all occupations where this knowledge is needed. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Description of required skills:
  • Communication and mathematical literacy, NQF Level 3.

    Persons attempting this unit standard are required to read, understand and interpret textbooks of a technical nature. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The context of this unit standard includes a complete tissue conversion process including final packing operations if in-line packaging is performed. Processes included are diaper conversion, femcare product conversion, roll tissue conversion and cut tissue conversion.

    The level assigned to this unit standard is appropriate because the process requires a wide range of technical skills and offers a considerable choice of procedures. A broad knowledge base incorporating some theoretical concepts, analytical interpretation of information, informed judgement and a range of sometime innovative responses to concrete but often unfamiliar problems are employed.
