Description

The MSS30312 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices specifies the competencies required to apply competitive systems and practices to one’s own work as well as, where required, to assist others to apply competitive systems and practices to their work.

This qualification provides a mixture of introductory and more advanced skills in competitive systems and practices. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies.

This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in a person’s own work role or 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. 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.

Job roles/employment outcomes

Job roles related to this qualification may be in small or large organisations and include individuals who must support, facilitate or lead the work of others, for example, team leaders, process or operational specialists in production, office, transport and logistics, members of project teams implementing competitive systems and practices, and other job roles which require similar skills. The qualification can also apply to tradespersons in a maintenance or production role.

Application

This qualification can apply to an individual applying competitive systems and practices to their own work or where a person has responsibility for facilitating the application of competitive systems and practices to a work area or to the work of a team. The team may be a permanent, formally designated team or be a project team implementing competitive systems and practices. For application to individual work the qualification provides the opportunity to gain a greater understanding and skill in competitive systems and practices than is available in the MSS20312 Certificate II in Competitive Systems and Practices qualification.

This qualification provides competitive systems and practices skills that can be applied in the following organisations and environments:

  • manufacturing enterprises
  • mining and service organisations
  • office environments
  • organisations in a value chain, such as:
  • suppliers
  • customers
  • distributors, warehouses, transport suppliers and other logistics support organisations
  • professional service suppliers, for example, legal, engineering, accounting, auditing, and education and training suppliers that may be assisting other organisations in implementing competitive systems and practices
  • other organisations implementing competitive systems and practices, for example, Government Departments, healthcare providers, transport organisations, and so on.
