It is recommended that participants have a minimum of 5 years’ experience in a supervisory or management role within a production or operational environment.
Employment outcomes related to this qualification may include roles such as a production or operations manager. This qualification provides skills that can be applied to the design and control of production systems within an organisation, including:

This qualification provides the skills needed to assist organisations to improve production where competitive systems and practices (lean) processes are not fully employed. It therefore complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying skills related to competitive systems and practices. Where these skills are required, the MSS50316 Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices should be considered.
