|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
|The purpose of the qualification is to provide learners, education and training providers and employers with the standards and the range of learning required to work effectively within a manufacturing, assembly and process logistics environment and meet the challenges of such an environment.
The chief skills that are recognised in this qualification are:
These skills require an in-depth understanding of manufacturing, parts and accessories manufacturing and distribution processes.
Rationale for the qualification:
Manufacturing and Assembly Logistics is characterised by extensive planning, scheduling and monitoring processes conducted within the competitive and challenging environment of manufacturing, assembly and process. These planning and monitoring services rendered to the larger manufacturing sector ensure that parts, accessories and consumables are available at the production lineside and consumption points on a "just-in-time (JIT) basis". On-going development of new products as the result of constantly changing customer needs and environmental issues require these industries to respond to quality issues and increasing competition in export and domestic markets.
This means that people working in manufacturing, assembly and process logistics operations require a range of skills and knowledge that will help them respond to the exacting quality requirements and ongoing change.
This is one of a series of qualifications for learners who want to follow a Manufacturing and Assembly Logistics career in the manufacturing and assembly processes, local and export supply industry and parts and accessories sectors.
For those who have been in this type of environment for a long time, this qualification represents part of an RPL process to acknowledge workplace skills acquired without the benefit of formal education or training.
The qualification also forms the basis for further development within manufacturing, assembly and process logistics and the management thereof in the higher education and training band.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|This qualification assumes learners have a National Certificate in Procurement, Logistics and Supply Chain Management at NQF Level 3 or equivalent.
If the learner does not already have such a qualification, learning in preparation for this qualification would also have to include:
Recognition of prior learning:
This qualification may be obtained through a process of RPL. The learner should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment and support provided to assist in the process of developing a portfolio. While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit-level outcomes.
|RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?|
|The qualification is composed of Fundamental, Core and Elective learning components:
Total: a minimum of 155 credits
|EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES|
|1. Promote, implement and maintain procedures that support safety, health, the environment, quality and risk management including reporting to and coaching team members.
2. Communicate and present information clearly and reliably and demonstrate the ability to analyse information to identify problems and determine trends.
3. Understand and apply Manufacturing and Assembly Process logistics planning in terms of producing manufacturing and assembly material schedules.
4. Demonstrate an ability to develop production schedules for manufacturing and/or assembly plants with up to 3 final / end products.
5. Understand and apply warehouse principles and processes.
6. Demonstrate an understanding of options for further learning in this or a related field of learning and preparation requirements for such learning.
|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
The integrated assessment must be based on a summative assessment guide. The guide will spell out how the assessor will assess different aspects of the performance and will include:
The learner may choose in which language s/he wants to be assessed. This should be established as part of a process of preparing the learner for assessment and familiarising the learner with the approach being taken.
While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit-level outcomes.
The assessment process should cover both the explicit tasks required for the qualification as well as the understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin the activities and the manufacturing process. The assessment process should cover both the explicit tasks required for the qualification as well as the understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin the activities required for manufacturing and assembly logistics. The assessment process should also establish how the critical outcomes have been advanced by the learning process.
|This qualification was compared to other, similar outcomes-based qualifications, certifications or skills standards in Australia and New Zealand, including New Zealand's National Certificate in Logistics Operations NQF Level 4 and National Diploma in Logistics Operations NQF Level 5. It was found to be difficult to compare the New Zealand and Australian narrow focus qualifications with this broad-based qualification that also include fundamentals and generic core standards. It was further difficult to undertake such comparisons given that the New Zealand and Australian qualifications, although they are in the same field, are conceptualised without exit level outcomes. This notwithstanding, the technical content of these qualifications for manufacturing and assembly logistics, of which the highest qualification is at level 5, does correspond with the equivalent level of qualification in manufacturing and assembly logistics in Australia and New Zealand.
This qualification was also compared to logistics skills standards in the United States and this qualification broadly corresponds to these, with the same proviso that the United States skills standards do not make provision for exit levels below the equivalent of NQF level 4.
|Moderators for the qualification should be qualified and accredited with an appropriate ETQA and have a qualification in Logistics Operations.
To assure the quality of the assessment process the moderation should cover one or more of the following:
Where assessment and moderation are taking place in sectors other than the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services, assessment and moderation should be in terms of a Memorandum of Understanding negotiated with the relevant ETQA.
|CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS|
|The following criteria should be applied by the relevant ETQA:
1. Appropriate qualification in the field of manufacturing and/or assembly logistics at or above level 4.
2. Appropriate experience and understanding of assessment theory, processes and practices.
3. Good interpersonal skills and the ability to balance the conflicting requirements of:
4. Registration as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.
5. Any other criteria required by the relevant ETQA.
|As per the SAQA Board decision/s at that time, this qualification was Reregistered in 2012; 2015.|
