This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in a person’s own work role. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production, maintenance, logistics or other technical skills to industry. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training Packages should be considered.
The skills in this qualification are often known in industry under a variety of titles many of which relate to manufacturing which is the origin of many competitive systems and practices. The most common term is lean manufacturing. However, other names for some of the system skills and techniques include agile manufacturing, lean operations, six sigma, lean six sigma, and so on.
This qualification is not intended to be the main qualification supplying operational or technical skills that are used in conjunction with competitive systems and practices skills although some technical competencies can be selected under the general electives provision at the end of elective group.
This qualification assumes that a learner has current or past work experience where some operational or technical skills have already been gained. The qualification is not suitable for direct entry from school.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
