The MSS30316 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.
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.
This qualification is not intended to supply operational or technical skills that are used in conjunction with competitive systems and practices skills.
This qualification assumes that a learner has current or past work experience where operational or technical skills have already been gained and a supervisory, facilitation or similar level of responsibility exists. 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.
