This module introduces the many different processes that are necessary before the starting to manufacture a shoe – or boot, slipper, sandal etc., and also the processes that support the manufacturing activity after production has started.
Many of the issues and activities described in this module, in a shoemaking context, are also discussed from a general business point of view in other modules, such as Supply Chain, Design Principles and Business Studies.
The specific aims of this module are:
This module is designed for independent, work-based, learning. At the start of the module, students will individually negotiate their own learning contract. Students will then be directed to appropriate learning resource materials (paper-based and/or web-based) covering the syllabus content of the module. Appropriate additional readings, case study work and exercises will be recommended to students in order to help them to explore and apply the syllabus content.
when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Demonstrate an understanding of the pre-production processes for footwear, and production planning.||Explain how and when the tooling-up process and the production planning processes may be complex or minimal.|
|2.||Display an understanding of the basic CAD-CAM tool for shoe pattern development.||Explain the steps for taking a design into production, where the buyer fits in, and how delivery dates are established and monitored.|
|3.||Analyse and apply basic manufacturing concepts to situations in the footwear/ fashion industries and/or their own company.||Analyse and evaluate the evidence generated from observational and secondary research.|
|4.||Use information from a variety of sources to demonstrate the need to prepare to manufacture a product in a structured – albeit flexible – way, and monitor the manufacturing progress, according to the needs of the business and the product.||
- Gather information using a variety of sources
- Use information appropriately
- Produce work that is referenced in an appropriate academic format
|5.||Study and learn in a manner that is appropriate at a foundation degree level.||Manage time effectively in order to fulfil the negotiated learning contract for the module and to submit a portfolio of evidence to an appropriate standard and by the agreed date.|
|6.||Use learning resources effectively to produce work that is appropriate at a foundation degree level.||Use the resources available to them in the workplace, together with other appropriate learning resources (as required) to generate, select, locate and retrieve relevant material for inclusion in the portfolio.|
|7.||Communicate and present work in a manner that is appropriate at a foundation degree level.||Produce a portfolio, presented in an appropriate fashion, which demonstrates the student's fulfilment of their learning contract.|
