1.24 Build prototype(s) of selected design(s) for complex explosive article

Key Role
Research Design & Development

This standard comprises the following elements:

1. Prepare drawings for complex explosive article prototype(s).
2. Carry out assembly-related activities to build complex explosive article prototype(s).

This activity is likely to be undertaken by someone whose work role involves Weapons, Ordnance, Munitions or Explosives work activities. This includes people working as senior research leaders working at strategic level with organizations outside their own.

Performance Criteria

1. Prepare drawings for complex explosive article prototype(s)
P1 work safely at all times, complying with health and safety, environmental and other relevant regulations, legislation and guidelines
P2 use up-to-date standards and technical requirements
P3 identify the features required for the drawings and material specifications
P4 identify the formats and conventions to be used
P5 deal with any problems associated with the technical information and its interpretation
P6 produce drawings, assembly procedures or sequences that are clear and concise
P7 use codes and other references that follow the required conventions
P8 obtain approval to drawings within agreed timescales by authorized people
P9 ensure that drawings are properly registered and stored securely
P10 maintain the requirements of confidentiality at all times
