Unit 5: Engineering Materials
Learning aim B: Know about the supply and sustainable use of engineering
materials and selection for an engineering product or activity.
Scenario
You are an engineer working for a local performance car component
manufacturer, and are asked to investigate the production process of a vehicle
component. In your investigation you will identify the materials used and their
possible impact on the environment. You will also come up with suggestions to
reduce the environmental impact, and select the most appropriate forms of
supply for the materials in a vehicle.
Task 1
The production process of a vehicle
In your investigation you will need to research and provide information about:

the materials used and their environmental impact (including
sustainability)

whether the materials have been used sustainably in the
production process/final product and other possible options

forms of supply of these materials, whether they are
appropriate and other possible options

whether the forms of supply for these materials are sustainable.
Evidence

produce for
this task
Criteria covered by this task:
To achieve the criteria you must show that you are able to:
Describe sustainable use of materials in a given engineering
product or activity.
Select appropriate forms of supply for materials in a given
engineering product or activity.
Assess whether materials have been used sustainably in an
engineering product or activity.
Justify the selected forms of supply for materials in an
engineering product or activity.
Analyse the sustainability of an engineering product or
activity, including materials used and forms of supply.

Note to Assessors:
We’re committed to ensuring that teachers and students have a choice
of resources to support their teaching and study.
We would encourage you to use relevant resources for your local area
such as local employers, newspapers and council websites.
A range of publications, from a number of publishers, is available to
support delivery and training for all Edexcel and BTEC qualifications, so
students and teachers can select those that best suit their needs.
Please find above some examples of textbooks. Further useful
resources may be found at
