MSS30316 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices Overview
This qualification specifies the competencies required to apply competitive systems and practices to own work and where required to assist to apply competitive systems and practices to their work.
The qualification provides a mix of introductory and advanced skills needed to improve efficiency in a person’s own work role to the efficiency of a team or work area. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production, maintenance, logistics, administration or other technical skills to industry.
The skills in this qualification are often know in industry under a variety of titles such as lean manufacturing, agile manufacturing, lean operations, six sigma and lean sigma.
Assessment will be carried out throughout the duration of the qualification. Feedback will be given to participants by their Assessor as they progress through the qualification.
The ways in which assessment activities are conducted may include:
Written/oral questions are designed to enable assessment of the required knowledge. Assessors might develop
additional questions to elicit more detailed responses.
Projects are designed to enable holistic assessment of the unit of competency. The Assessor will consider each project in the context of the organisation and make adjustments or contextualise as necessary.
Observations are used to record participants carrying out their normal work duties which the trainer/assessor has observed, and provides evidence that the participant can perform the tasks associated with the unit of competency.
Third party reports
We ask the Supervisor or Manager to confirm in writing that the participant has, over a period of time, demonstrated the defined skills and have the required knowledge to satisfy the competency standards that are being assessed.
