Using Essential Skills: On the Job with a Machinist (2010)

The authors of this booklet follow a machinist in the aerospace industry through a typical day to illustrate how he uses Essential Skills in his work.

To begin his day, the machinist needs the skill of document use to deal with a work order to modify brackets so they can be used to attach airplane doors. He uses critical thinking to design a jig to hold the bracket in place, then employs his writing skills to prepare a note for his co-worker to explain how to complete the job.

The authors have included a section with questions that allow readers to assess how well their skills compare to those of an experienced machinist.
