Description

The MSM50316 Diploma of Production Management provides the skills and knowledge required to plan, direct and coordinate production activities in a manufacturing environment. The qualification has been developed with the process manufacturing sector as a focus. It may also be applied in other organisations in the value chain.

The qualification has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies.

The MSM50315 Diploma of Production Management specifies the competencies required for employment in job roles related to assisting organisations to improve production. Employment outcomes related to this qualification may include roles such as a production or operations manager.

This qualification provides skills that can be applied to the design and control of production systems within an organisation, including:

  • planning and scheduling
  • tracking and analysing
  • directing and operating.
  • This qualification provides the skills needed to assist organisations to improve production where competitive systems and practices (lean) processes are not fully employed. It therefore complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying skills related to competitive systems and practices. Where these skills are required the MSS50312 Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices should be considered.

    This qualification can be accessed by direct entry. However, entrants for the qualification should already possess operational or technical skills related to the organisation seeking production improvements, either through prior relevant experience or qualifications. For this reason the qualification is not suitable as an entry-level qualification for school leavers.
