PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard are required by people in the field of manufacturing and engineering.
The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for various NQF level 5 manufacturing and engineering qualifications. Qualifying learners can demonstrate an understanding of mathematical and statistical techniques. They are able to effectively use these techniques as required during the course of their work in a senior manufacturing and/or technical capacity in an organisation. 
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 mathematics
The credits allocated to this unit standard assume that a learner has already met the requirements of the FET NQF level 4 mathematics standards. 
UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
For the purposes of this unit standard, the learner is required to use a range of mathematical and statistical techniques required when working in a senior manufacturing and/or technical capacity in an organisation.

UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
The assessment will be governed by the policies and guidelines of the MERSETA Education and Training Quality Assuror (ETQA) who has jurisdiction over this field of learning.
The assessor will (at the very least) be accredited and have a technical qualification in this learning area. The learner can be assessed in the language of his/her choice although if s/he has to report incidents or conditions to some one else, s/he will be assessed on his/her ability to report in the language commonly used in the working environment. The learner will be assessed in the workplace or by simulation, but can submit documents, projects, test results and assignments that are not produced in the workplace or by the RPL process. The learner can be assessed against this unit standard to obtain credits or as part of an integrated assessment for a qualification.
