This unit covers analysing condition monitoring results and developing recommendations based on the analysis. The data analysed is generated by a continuous plant and
equipment condition monitoring program.

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 results of condition monitoring of plant/equipment; - performing calculations to analyse condition monitoring data; - preparing reports based on the analysis of the condition monitoring data; - reporting recommendations to the appropriate authority, and; - orally reporting routine information.Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - the operational specifications of the plant/equipment being monitored; - any trends and/or deviations from operational specifications; - numerical operations and calculations/formulae for data analysis within the scope of this unit; - the reasons for undertaking the identified calculations; - the procedures for reporting the analysis of condition monitoring data; - the previous history of the plant/equipment being monitored; - any relevant legislative requirements; - the operational specifications of the plant/equipment; - the recommendations with respect to action to be taken; - the reasons for the recommendations made; - the expected effect of the recommendations on the operational performance of the plant/equipment; - the procedures for reporting recommendations. and; - the authority/person to whom the recommendations are to be made.
