3 Presentation and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Assignment 3- Presentation and written assessment
Task Description

The assignment question/s will be uploaded on the moodle web page of this unit two weeks prior to start of the term. This assignment has Part A and Part B. There are three questions in Part A. Part B requires the preparation of power Point slides for presentation of your mini-project. This report is based on the information collected from your own company and from resources beyond Learning Guide. If required, your organisation information may be altered to protect confidentiality provided it is still reasonably close to real life assumptions. Besides the content and the formatting of the report, correct referencing is of utmost importance. Use standard file name format and follow the word count limit.

The objectives of Assignment 3 are also to:

  • Develop multi-literacy skills including reflection, communication and presentation skills
  • Explore some of the fundamental concepts of maintenance analysis technique and their application to practical problems
  • Analyse the causes and develop solutions to asset and maintenance management problems
  • Introduce the maintenance safety through quality control and assurance systems and procedures
  • Prepare a PowerPoint Presentation

Key notes to consider when writing your report are:

  • Ensure that you write in full sentence structure ensuring you use the correct tense and grammar
  • Your paragraphs (especially in your discussion) need to have a cohesive flow of the topic being discussed
  • In academic writing , avoid the use of first person (e.g. I, my, ours). That is, reports are to be written in third person (e.g. ‘In the author’s opinion, maintenance management can be described as…’ instead of ‘my understanding of maintenance management is…’)
  • Be sure to clearly and accurately reference other’s ideas, words, figures/tables etc. in accordance with the CQUniversity’s Harvard referencing guide
