Drawings are read and understood, and symbols, lines, and views are interpreted.
Dimensions of upholstered furniture are established from drawings, and actual size is determined by applying measurements and scale.
Various components of an upholstery furniture and raw materials are identified according to drawing details and specifications.
The sequence of upholstering activities according to the type and construction of upholstered furniture is derived from the drawing and specifications.
A list of materials and consumables is compiled according to the drawing and technical specifications.

Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:
An upholstery frame is inspected to ensure it meets specifications and defects in the construction of the frame are identified.
Foam, cardboard, springs and webbing used for preparation of an upholstery frame are marked out and cut.
Frame weakness and strengths (knots, corner blocks, all joints, and rails) are identified and corrective action is taken.
Springs are evenly spaced, tightened and secured to the frame using lashing and knotting techniques.
Webbing is selected, measured, cut to length and attached to the frame applying correct spacing and interweaving techniques and ensuring correct tension.
Foam is selected and checked for the correct density according to specific components, measured, shaped and layered according to the prescribed template and attached to the frame applying adhesives or other appropriate methods.
Safety procedures are adhered to at all times.

Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:
Prepared upholstery frames are inspected to verify conformance with specifications.
Prepared covers are inspected and faults and defects identified, including type of covers supplied, quantity of covers, fabric type, sizes and seam allowances, fabric flaws, sewing faults and pile direction.
Raw materials, consumables and ancillary materials required for covering upholstery furniture are identified, selected and inspected.
Covers are fit and secured to prepared upholstery frames using visible and concealed finishing techniques and using relief cuts to relieve tension on the fabric and to achieve the specified finish.
Covers are stretched and strained over the frame and firmly secured using the magnetic tack hammer and tacks, pins, staple gun and staples, needles and thread.
Covered frames are inspected ensuring fabric tension is suitable and smooth, patterns match, pile runs in the correct direction and there is no distortion of the seats.

Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 4:
Cutting lay requirements (cutting plan) for layout of templates and patterns for railroad or standard upholstery material are produced.
Upholstery material lay-out is correct according to specifications and includes allowances.
Upholstery covers are cut and sewn whilst considering and applying pattern matching, correct direction of the pile and direction of the stretch of the fabric.
An industrial walking foot machine with attachments (for piping, zip, flat sewing, quilting) is correctly operated to sew upholstery covers.
Upholstery cover components are aligned and assembled according to the nip marks or burn marks applying the prescribed sequence.
Upholstery covers are inspected for straightness, neatness, corners, stitch lengths, etc. to ensure quality requirements are met.
Safety procedures are applied at all times.

Back tacking is applied where applicable.
Various operations such as piping, flat stitching, quilting, pleating, decorative finishing’s are applied as required by specification details.
T-cushions with zip fastening are produced.
A final quality inspection is performed to verify that the overall appearance of the furniture work-piece is in compliance with specifications by paying attention to balance, neatness, direction of pile, placement of patterns, ensuring no excess fabric or threads.
