M3 – Basic Production Level “Required Skills” Basic Production Level Credential (Instructional Alignments to MSSC Certifications) Basic Production Level Required Technical Subjects Basic Production Level - Required Technical Skills Blueprint Reading Read and interpret multi-view drawings with part features, dimensions, part hole sizes and locations, scales, title blocks, part section features, assemblies, and fastener sizes. Computer Fundamentals Use personal computers to research information via the Internet or Intranet, send/receive email, perform word processing, and utilize spreadsheets. Fundamental Technical Applications Understand, safely operate, and provide needed minor adjustments to software-based and electro-mechanical devices used in modern manufacturing workplaces. Hand and Power Tools Identify and safely operate proper equipment for jobs (i.e. hammers, files, horizontal band saw, vertical band saw, drill press, manual lathe, mill, and welder). Quality and Measurement Make measurements and analyze accuracy using English and S.I. units, tape measures, dial calipers, digital calipers, digital indicators, dial indicators, micrometers, and rules. Use blueprint reading and measurement techniques above to determine if items meet specifications, document variables using SPC based documentation procedures, determine required actions based on quality measures, and given policy guidelines.
M3 – Advanced Production Level “Required Skills” Advanced Production Level Credential Advanced Production Level Technical Subjects Advanced Production Level - Technical Skills Basic Electrical Systems Connect, maintain, adjust, repair, replace and test for basic electrical component malfunctions to NEC specifications at the operator level with automated and non-automated systems including skills to effectively and safely repair and adjust operator stations, controllers, electrical lockouts, sensors, fans, motors, relays, alarms, pilot devices, test instrumentation, inductors, capacitors, and resistance devices. Basic Mechanical Power Transmission Systems Connect, maintain, adjust, repair, replace and test for mechanical power transmission malfunctions at the operator level, including skills to effectively and safely repair and adjust components in mechanical power transmission systems. Blueprint Reading Interpret blueprints that use geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols, hole location tolerances, feature control frames, and datums. Verify that parts meet geometric and dimensioning tolerances specified in a blueprint. Quality and Measurement Demonstrate basic applications of SPC, determine when adjustments should and should not be made in a process using control charts, properly document process variables on a control chart, calculate basic SPC functions, identify shifts in process systems such as mean shift, normal variability. Use appropriate measuring devices for determining quality standards of a part. (Steps up from the measurement techniques used in the Bronze Level evaluation).
