Advanced Fabrication ZAE205

Cradle Coast

Introduction

Building on the skills and knowledge you gained in ZAE105 ‘Introduction to Fabrication’, you will extend your ability to work with additional techniques and elements of digital fabrication, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries by completing a team-based fabrication project. Applying your extended skills relating to lean manufacturing and quality management approaches, you will focus on measuring and assuring quality, consistency and efficiency of your fabrication outputs. You will also develop your ability to create technical drawings and job specifications by extending your knowledge of engineering concepts. This will include analysis and justification of your decisions relating to safety, quality, velocity and cost issues during the planning, execution and review of your fabrication project.

This unit builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences. You will be introduced to:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice.

You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.
