PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Coordinating predictive and preventive maintenance to ensure that the production process runs smoothly. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
This unit standard has been designed as part of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for activities below, at and above this level. The credits assigned to it are based on the assumption that I am learning what is needed for this unit standard as part of my learning for a range of related unit standards at this level or below it.

If I have experience in these related activities but do not have credits for them, I can obtain credits by being assessed through a process that recognises prior learning.

If I do not have such experience of related activities, then my learning time will be increased. I can choose to be assessed and obtain credits against those other unit standards as I make progress towards the outcomes of this unit standard. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
This unit standard deals with the interface between production and maintenance activities. This standard will assess my ability to coordinate the activities of production and maintenance personnel to ensure maintenance can be done but that the production process continues to run efficiently with minimal downtime and delays. I do not have to be a maintenance specialist to be competent in this unit standard but I need to be familiar with the maintenance requirements of the process for which I am responsible.

UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
My assessment will be governed by the policies and guidelines of the MERSETA Education and Training Quality Assurer who has jurisdiction over this field of learning. My assessor will (at the very least) be accredited and have a technical qualification in this learning area.

I can be assessed in the language of my choice although if I have to report incidents or conditions to someone else, I will be assessed on my ability to report in the language commonly used in my working environment.

I will be assessed in the workplace but I can submit documents, projects, test results and assignments that were not produced in the workplace.

I can be assessed against this unit standard to obtain credits or as part of an integrated assessment for a qualification.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
