'Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.'
Please only use the unit specifications provided on this website as a guide, you must use your own internal verification proces at your centre in conjunction with B-tec EV services
Learning aim A: Know about scales of production and the processes and types of equipment used in manufacturing organisations
Your Assessor will show you with four engineered products (one for each scale of production). You need to research and obtain information on the:
Using your findings from the above activity to help you, produce a written/diagrammatic report that includes detailed information on the following:
Criteria - Each learning aim for each unit is split into higher and lower tier learning aims.
You should choose which level you are aiming at, see your tutor for guidance.
Always read the Pass, Merit and Distinction criteria carefully and ask any questions you need so that you secure your understanding of the what you are being asked to do as soon as possible.
Unit 2 - Coursework Scaffolded Template Documents (you can use and adapt these documents to aid your completion or delivery of the topic. as long as you hit the criteria and use correct technical language you can present your analysis in your own clear way)
Unit 31 LA A - Coursework examples
Below is a worked example of a Block diagram of The Key Stages of production which will cover P2 of unit 31. Notice how each stage has been given a title and there is a clear flow of activity from one stage to the next with quality cheking loops inplace to help minimise falws in production.
Below are distinction graded worked examples of each production process that you need to explain and discuss. Continious, Mass, Batch, and One off. Each page has a block diagram of the likly production map for the product but it is only a requirement to do this for one of the scales of production.
You can use these examples covering P1, P3, M1 to support your own independant work making sure that you do not copy or plagurise the content of the examples below.
Below are distinction graded worked examples covering P5, M2, M4, D2.
In this section of the report you must describe, explain and justify the different machinary and tools that are likly to be used in the four main production scales.
Unit 31 LA B
Learning aim B: Be able to produce a production plan and product specification and prepare related information
You must produce an outline production plan that should include:
You must also prepare related data and information to support your outline production plan by calculating processing times, plant, labour, materials and components costs.
Next modify your outline production plan from part a) to make it suitable for a much larger batch of the engineered product. You could consider changing the processes/tools/ equipment used, or speeds and feeds etc. You must also prepare related data and information to support your modified outline production plan by calculating the additional processing times, plant, labour, materials and components costs.
Finally, write a short report providing detailed reasons as to why your outline production plan from part a) is suitable for making a small batch of the engineered product. Ensure that you make full reference to the product specification in your response.
