PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Assembling components to produce a completed product. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
This unit standard has been designed as the start of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for activities at and above this level. The credits assigned to it are based on the assumption that I am learning what is needed for this unit standard as part of my learning for a range of related unit standards at this level.

If I have experience in these related activities but do not have credits for them, I can obtain credits by being assessed through a process that recognises prior learning.

If I do not have such experience of related activities, then my learning time will be increased. I can choose to be assessed and obtain credits against those other unit standards as I make progress towards the outcomes of this unit standard. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The learner is able to assemble a variety of basic products including assembly of automotive components, electrical components, electrical machine components and sub assemblies, mechanical components.

    1. Total range of checks on materials, components and products are regularly and consistently performed.
    2. Minor adjustments are made to assembled products where required quickly and appropriately.
    3. Process never stops through lack of materials/components where it is within my control.
    4. Problems are communicated to appropriate personnel.
    5. Correct measuring equipment is selected and used.
    6. A clean and tidy work environment is maintained.
    7. Work is carried out in a safe manner.
    8. Production data is accurately documented.
    9. Reporting is done on time and accurately.

    Understanding confirmed:

    1. Quality awareness: implications (impact on internal/external customers) of defective products, materials or components.
    2. Implications of not responding or responding slowly to problems at work station.
    3. Implications for accuracy of the misuse of measuring equipment.
    4. Impact of not maintaining a continuous production flow.
    5. Need for accurate up-to-date reporting on production/shift occurrences.
    6. Implications of not following safe working practices. 


    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    My assessment will be governed by the policies and guidelines of the MERSETA Education and Training Quality Assurer who has jurisdiction over this field of learning. My assessor will (at the very least) be accredited and have a technical qualification in this learning area.

    I can be assessed in the language of my choice although if I have to report incidents or conditions to someone else, I will be assessed on my ability to report in the language commonly used in my working environment.

    I will be assessed in the workplace but I can submit documents, projects, test results and assignments that were not produced in the workplace.

    I can be assessed against this unit standard to obtain credits or as part of an integrated assessment for a qualification.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
