Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills: - obtaining, reading, interpreting and following information on written job instructions, specifications, standard operating procedures, charts, lists, drawings and other applicable reference documents; - obtaining necessary approvals; - checking system components against specification; - calibrating and checking test equipment to be used; - energising and checking the components and/or the control loop/system for correct supply; - checking and clarifying task-related information; - adjusting control loop/system components; - conducting appropriate measurements/tests; - carrying out authorised modifications to the control system and/or process components; - checking for conformance to specifications; - completing reports and documentation on commissioning activity, and; - undertaking numerical operations, geometry and calculations/formulae within the scope of this unit.Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - work to be undertaken; - control system format; - operational intent of the processes being controlled by the control system; - specifications of the control system and the processes being controlled; - regulatory and legislative requirements associated with the commissioning procedure; - procedures for commissioning the control system; - procedures to ensure that control characteristics, application and process specifications are achieved; - components of the operational processes; - installation specifications for each component of the operational processes; - measuring techniques and equipment appropriate to the measurements to be taken; - test equipment and techniques appropriate to the commissioning of the control; - calibration procedures for the selected test equipment; - procedures for energising components and/or the control loop/system; - supply requirements of components and the control loop/system; - recording requirements for readings/measurements taken; - adjustments that can be made to the control loop/system components; - effects of adjustments on the control characteristics and operational processes; - measurements/tests to be undertaken to verify control system and process operation; - reasons for selecting the chosen measurements/tests; - procedures to be followed if the operational specifications of the control system and/or process cannot be achieved; - effect of changes to control system components on system performance; - appropriate authority to approve any modifications; - reporting requirements associated with the commissioning of control systems; - requirements for recording modifications; - reasons for recording modifications; - hazard and control measures associated with modifying control systems, including housekeeping, and; - safe work practices and procedures.
