10674  Make-up of dough in an automated plant baking bakery  Level 2  NQF Level 02  10   

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A person credited with this unit standard is able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the make-up of dough automated bread plant.
  • Prepare for the make-up of dough.
  • Make-up dough.
  • Perform end of dough make-up procedures.

    This unit standard is intended for a person working in an automated bread plant who has the responsibility of making-up dough for the production of bread in a bread plant bakery.

    Range: White, brown or whole-wheat dough must be produced.

    This unit standard will contribute to the full development of the learner within the baking manufacturing 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 manufacturing and processing environment. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Description of required skills and knowledge:
  • Understanding of health and safety requirements in a baking environment. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The scope of this unit standard includes the make-up of pan bread dough using the no time dough and/or bulk fermentation process.

    In the context of this unit standard the make-up of dough refers to dividing of dough, rounding or first moulding, intermediate proofing, final moulding.

    The level assigned to this unit standard is appropriate because the process is moderate in range, established and familiar and offers clear choices of routine responses. The learning demand employs basic operational knowledge and readily available information. The application of this unit standard is to qualify the person for certification in sub-trades.
