UEEIC0015 - Develop, enter and verify word and analogue control programs for programmable logic controllers

    Unit code: UEEIC0015 | Study level: TAFE
    UEECD0007 - Apply work health and safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace
    UEEIC0013 - Develop, enter and verify discrete control programs for programmable controllers
    (Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


    This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to develop, enter and verify word/text and analogue control programs for programmable logic controllers (PLCs).It includes identifying, developing and entering industrial control system programs, as well as monitoring, verifying and documenting programming activities. It also includes installing and testing programs for an industrial system requiring advanced control functions using structure logic and acceptable design techniques.


    For Melbourne campuses

    Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, incl 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:
    * applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements
    * consulting with relevant person/s
    * correcting programming anomalies
    * dealing with unplanned events/situations in accordance with workplace procedures in a manner that minimises risk to personnel and equipment
    * determining modes of operation from job specifications
    * developing and entering programs for industrial control systems
    * developing control solutions
    * developing control systems to required operating functions and parameters
    * documenting control system and programming clearly
    * entering programming functions and parameters
    * identifying industrial control systems/programs
    * installing programmable controllers
    * monitoring, verifying and documenting programming activities
    * obtaining relevant equipment, software and testing devices
