This unit covers the performance of technical aspects of engineering work in accordance with established engineering principles and practices.

Unit details

Study level:
Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


MEM16006A - Organise and communicate information


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: - research and evaluation; - review and maintenance of academic development, work experience, ethical practice, indemnity, negotiation, consultation and human relations with respect to the practice of engineering; - consultation with technical experts and specialists; - evaluation and ranking of engineering options for particular applications; - designing and planning documentation for particular applications; - documenting work instructions; - implementing occupational health and safety and environmental regulations, codes of practice and statutory requirements; - identifying and analysing hazards and risks; - monitoring and consultation with stakeholders and taskforce, and; - research and evaluation of engineering career options based on current engineering activities. Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - political, social and environmental context and possible range of particular engineering activities - the effect of government policy; - the significance, need for continual review; - the significance and applicability of strategic industrial management; - the application and affect of elements of engineering practice on particular engineering activities; - methods for evaluation and ranking of engineering options including the use of decision making and problem solving tools (eg. Kepler Trebor method); - the significance of documented processes and outcomes performance measures in the context of client requirements, industrial, social, political and economic environments; - documented work instructions in the context of the objectives of the engineering activity; - negotiating principles; - risk assessment tools such as "risk matrix' and "Monte Carlo" risk assessment; - the significance of statutory requirements disaster management strategies; - long term environmental and sustainability issues associated with the engineering activity; - documentation and conclusion procedures; - relevance of current engineering activities to future career options, and; - the value of a portfolio in contributing to future career options in engineering.
