Machine Trades. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Ohio Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP), derived from a modified Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) process, is a current comprehensive and verified employer competency program list for machine trades. Each unit (with or without subunits) contains competencies and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter this occupational area. Within that outline are three levels of items: core, advancing, and futuring. Core items are essential to entry-level employment. Advancing items are needed to advance in a given occupation. Futuring items are needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now. This profile contains 18 units: (1) orientation; (2) measuring workpieces; (3) inspecting workpieces; (4) benchwork; (5) layouts; (6) power saws ; (7) drilling machines; (8) grinding machines; (9) milling machines; (10) lathes and turning machines; (11) computer numerical controlled (CNC) lathes and turning center; (12) CNC mills and machining center; (13) electrical discharged machines; (14) heat treating; (15) superabrasives; (16) contemporary tooling; (17) advanced machining tooling; and (18) employability skills.
