Production Machine Shop Employment Competencies. Part Three: The Engine Lathe.
Bishart, Gus; Werner, Claire
Competencies for production machine shop are provided for the third of four topic areas: the engine lathe. Each competency appears in a one-page format. It is presented as a goal statement followed by one or more "indicator" statements, which are performance objectives describing an ability that, upon attainment, will establish competency for the stated goal. Indicator statements are further qualified by one or more "benchmark" statements or observable behaviors describing what the trainee will do to prove that he/she is demonstrating achievement of the performance objective. Benchmark statements are followed by an "assessment" statement, which describes how the observer determines that the benchmark is achieved and establishes the criteria for performance. The competencies for this topic are divided into 18 sections: metal cutting, the engine lathe, care of the lathe, speeds and feeds, cutting tools and fluids, drilling a center hole, facing ends, rough turning, finish turning, mounting workpieces, drilling on the lathe, boring, reaming, mandrel, knurling, filing and polishing, turning tapers, and steady and follower rest.
