PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is part of a series that develops specific cognitive skills.

The present unit deals with the analysis of a whole into parts, and the synthesis of parts into a functional whole. The cognitive functions and operations behind such processes are recognised as having a very clear application to a wide range of work contexts.

Individuals are often unaware of existing methodologies that facilitate the use of analysis and synthesis for reaching objectives in the workplace. The cognitive functions that underpin the process of analytical perception are frequently un- or under-developed.

This unit standard is one step in addressing this situation.

A learner who achieves this unit standard will be able to:
  • Perform analysis and synthesis of tasks with different content and modality.
  • Distinguish between structural and operational models.
  • Apply structural and operational models in job-related tasks.
  • Identify and develop appropriate relationships in the workplace to achieve synergy. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Communication at NQF Level 4.

    As per the SAQA Board decision/s at that time, this unit standard was Reregistered in 2012; 2015. 

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    This unit standard is part of a series that has been developed to address the development of cognitive literacy. Obviously no one unit standard can address the multiplicity of cognitive functions, operations and strategies that are required for effective thinking. Taken as a whole however, the series is designed to address most of the cognitive functions required at the various phases of the mental act. This unit standard can be used for any method of cognitive development.

    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.
