The sample assessment material for the NEA units indicate that specific machinery will be needed, what if we do not have that machinery?
In the Information for teachers using this assignment section of the sample assessment material for Unit R015: Manufacturing a one-off product, we've now added the following for clarification:
- the aluminium channel listed in the working drawing is a standard off-the-shelf product that comes in a ¼ (6.4) mm thickness.
- a steel channel may be used as an alternative to aluminium.
This information can also be found in our subject update.
