Summary Statement preparation

Summary Statement preparation

With this session of the tutorials for Professional Engineer Summary Statement preparation we will proceed with the finalization of our guidance and present the following two Sections of Summary Statement last part. As is the case with the Tutorial Sessions already presented, we will concentrate on both the explanations and examples, which are highly sought for by our clients. We have tried to cover more ground with the examples presented here, so a variety of them can be used to better illustrate the requirements for various ANZSCO codes. That said, you should be aware that you need to use these strictly as examples, and find your own words when writing your Career Episodes and carry on to Summary Statement preparation.

 

Element 3.3: “Creative, innovative and pro-active demeanor.”

 

This fragment of the Summary Statement preparation is dedicated to showcasing your capability to select innovative methods and solutions instead of just using the generally accepted and traditional ones. Additionally, you should present your aptitude to follow and use creative approaches in your own engineering work and projects. This will also provide proof that you are aware of the latest developments and inventions in your respective engineering field, and that you know how to use this fringe science to do a groundbreaking or original approach when resolving your project challenges.

 

a.) Applies creative approaches to identify and develop alternative concepts, solutions and procedures, appropriately challenges engineering practices from technical and non-technical viewpoints; identifies new technological opportunities.

 

As is noted, the examples in this part of the Summary Statement preparation should illustrate your creativity and usage of newly adopted concepts in order to improve your work and results.

 

Example: I solved the complete failure of a 20 years old processing and power unit of the remote control panel by innovatively incorporating an Arduino board with a Raspberry Pi computer, and a 15000 mAh power bank that powered the panel via USB.

Example: Attending a Festo seminar helped me realize that we could reduce the running costs of the production line by installing the new type of pneumatic elements that featured an automatic lubrication system, relieving from the need to employ large numbers of maintenance technicians.

 

b.) Seeks out new developments in the engineering discipline and specializations and applies fundamental knowledge and systematic processes to evaluate and report potential.

 

You can use progressive methods and techniques and/or tools in your work, and this part of the 3rd Section of the Summary Statement to illustrate just that.

 

Example: Based on what I read on the “Modern Chemical Engineer” magazine, the distillation plant could incorporate a new type of crude oil pre-processing unit right on the existing infrastructure, potentially increasing the hourly yield production by up to 35%.

 

Example: I developed and presented a technical report that analyzed the long-term benefits that the workshop would have if the owner invested on the purchase of a new metal bar feeder that would be compatible with the existing CNC milling machines.

 

c.) Is aware of broader fields of science, engineering, technology and commerce for which new ideas and interfaces may be drawn and readily engages with professionals from these fields to exchange ideas.

 

In this part of the Summary Statement preparation you should present a broad awareness of your and connected fields in order to draw from fresh approaches and inventions and to better your own work.

 

Example: I realized that the graphene sheets that a Taiwanese team of scientists suggested in the context of a new battery product development could also be used by my company for the manufacturing of strong yet lightweight composite materials. Thus, I contacted the head of their team to learn more about the application possibilities of this new material and reported my findings to my company’s R&D department.

 

Example: I contacted the foreman of a car manufacturing plant who used the same robotic arms as the ones available in my company, to discuss the ways I could adjust their configurable elements and render them suitable for the manufacturing of products of different size and specifications.

 

Element 3.4: “Professional use and management of information.”

 

Applicants will be asked present their information processing skills in this part of the Summary Statement preparation. These will include information gathering, information assessment and usage of the information control procedures. As all information used in an engineering project leads directly to selecting methods of work and other important features, this is a vital part of your work and needs to be presented accordingly. True and useful information further leads to resilient technical measures taken and allows certainty in the outcomes to follow.

 

a.) Is proficient in locating and utilising information – including accessing, systematically searching, analysing, evaluating and referencing relevant published works and data; is proficient in the use of indexes, bibliographic databases and other search facilities.

 

The first indicator of Section 3.4 of the Summary Statement preparation process would present your skills to both obtain and use the information you need, as the first steps in preparing a plan for the entire project.

 

Example: I researched on the company’s knowledge database to find user cases that were similar to the one I was facing. As the tagging system had only recently been established, I managed to locate what I was looking for by developing a PHP script that would filter HTML blocks and compare the content with keywords that I had previously designated.

 

Example: During the preliminary study phase, I researched for relevant published papers and journals in jstor.org, scholar.google.com, and papers.ssrn.com. After pinpointing what I needed, I directly downloaded the freely available titles, and sent a copy request to the authors of what wasn’t.

 

b.) Critically assesses the accuracy, reliability and authenticity of information.

 

This part should showcase your ability to critically evaluate the information and hence use it to improve your work.

 

Example: My Company was using the same platform to gather customer and service agents’ feedback. To decisively increase the reliability of the incoming data, I set a unique public key for each agent to authenticate themselves and securely connect to the platform through a secure socket layer.

 

Example: Every information source that was brought to the first meeting by the team of the R&D engineers was assessed based on whether it was written before or after the December 2004 incident that fundamentally changed our understanding on earthquake scales and global planetary ground effects.

 

c.) Is aware of common document identification, tracking and control procedures.

 

The final part in this section of the Summary Statement preparation process is here to provide proof that you know how to manage the information flow, and utilize it to the benefit of the project at hand.

 

Example: I selected four employees who were experienced experts in their respective field. All related information should pass their assessment first, and then it would be submitted to the management for final evaluation and approval.

 

Example: I established an information control procedure according to which everything that was uploaded to the database should contain info about the author, publication date, and a picture of the front page of the book/report/paper. This way, everything could be checked and verified.

 

We have here presented two more elements of the third part of the Summary Statement preparation process and will finalize this part of the Summary Statement in the following Tutorials. In the next articles you will be able to obtain instructions on how to proceed and finalize your Summary Statement, we will be covering elements 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.
