PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A person credited with this unit standard is able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of manual pan handling and controlling during production processes.
  • Handle pans manually during production processes.
  • Handle pan activities during the production processes.
  • Perform end of pan handling activities.

    This unit standard is intended for a person working in a semi automated bread plant bakery who has the responsibility of manually handling and controlling bread pan operations during bread plant production processes.

    This unit standard will contribute to the full development of the learner within the baking environment by providing recognition, further mobility and transportability within the field of manufacturing and assembly. The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this unit standard are essential for social and economic transformation and contribute to the upliftment and economic growth within the baking environment. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Description of required skills and knowledge:
  • One. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The scope of this unit standard a person working in a semi automated bread plant bakery who manually handle and control bread pan operations during bread plant production processes.

    In the context of this unit standard pan handling operations refer to pan oiling, panning-up operations, proofer and oven loading, oven discharge, depanning, pan cooling and stacking.

    The level assigned to this unit standard is appropriate because the process is limited in range, repetitive and familiar, no generation of new ideas is needed and a narrow range of knowledge and cognitive skills is applied. The application of this unit standard is to qualify the person for entry into career-based certification.
