Lean Six Sigma Training

Streamlining processes with Lean Six Sigma

TOPIC INTRODUCTION

In earlier times, organisations depended on the experience of the professionals for their projects to succeed. The way to success depended upon how a manager had solved a particular problem earlier. Sometimes success was not even granted and led to incomplete projects and losses to the organisation. It was Motorola in the late 1980’s who took the initiative to start following an approach called “muda” (Japanese) or waste reduction. According to this approach, the unwanted processes are removed from the production line to achieve better results and productivity. Sometime later “muda” came to be known as Six Sigma and along with Lean, it became Lean Six Sigma.  While Lean relies on a collective team effort that helps improve operations by reducing variation, Six Sigma removes the eight kinds of wastes.

  • Remove waste processes with Lean Six Sigma

  • Understand the 5S Techniques

  • Learn an Industry independent Methodology

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Lean Six Sigma helps remove the eight kinds of waste from the production line. These can be classified as:

  • Transporting
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-Processing
  • Over-Production
  • Defects
  • Under Utilization of employees

 

To tighten up the links between the processes, Lean Six Sigma removes the process variations occur in the process steps of a project. It is the Japanese 5s technique that is followed to implement this methodology. To streamline, five processes to be followed are listed below in that very order:

  • Sort
  • Straighten
  • Shine
  • Standardise
  • Sustain

 

In the Lean Six Sigma training at MSP Training, the training contains Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade courses.

Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course serves as a foundation level course to those delegates who are new to the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It teaches the basics of the Lean Six Sigma methodology to the delegates who are new to it.

A professional can be certified as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt if he/she is a Yellow Belt Professional already. In case the delegate is not a Yellow Belt professional, the course content of the Yellow Belt course will be covered in the Green Belt course also.

The highest level of a Lean Six Sigma that the MSP training covers is the Black Belt course. A Black Belt professional leads a team of Green Belt professionals. It is a must for the delegates sitting for the Black Belt course that they come along with a Green Belt project to be completed after the Black Belt course. The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course is the highest level achievable by a professional undergoing the Lean Six Sigma training.

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade course is another course for which a professional can opt at MSP Training. Though equal in value to the Black Belt course, it is different in that it does not teach the concepts up to Green Belt rather starts directly with the Black Belt concepts.

ABOUT Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital city of the Wales and county town of the historic South Glamorgan with a population of around 346,100 according to 2011 census.  The city is also known as the chief commercial city of the United Kingdom. The city is recognised as the most attractive tourist destination in the country and recorded 18.3 million visitors in 2010. The strategic location and geographical features played a crucial role in the developing the city as the largest coal port in the world. The city serves as a major base for most national sports and cultural institutions and forms part of the Eurocities network of the largest European cities. The Welsh office was built in the city in 1964, and it became an only centre of national administration. Until the 19th century, the city was the small town of the Wales, but with the arrival of industries and presence of major port for coal, transportation contributed towards the growth of the city. Some historians suggested that the city derived its name from earlier Welsh form Caerdyf meaning ‘the fort of the Taff’. Some previous studies also revealed that the name of the city is given in honour of nearby province governor during the construction of Roman fort. Later on, these have been rejected by modern scholars on linguistic grounds.

History

The early history of the city traced its root back to the Iron Age. The city formed part of Celtic British tribe during the Roman Conquest of Britain. In 75 AD, Romans built the fort at the opening of the River Taff, formed the northwestern boundary of the Cardiff. The fort also served as Isca Augusta (acted as border defences) military outposts for a long period. With the arrival of the civilian settlement, the fort has been demolished, and the Roman villa was discovered at Ely. A stone fortress was built similarly with the Saxon Shore Forts to safeguard the Britannia from raiders. Coins were found from the reign of Gratian depicted that the fort was demolished at the end of 4th century and last legions of Roman left the province of Britannia with Magnum Maximus.

The construction of Cardiff Castle began within the walls of the old Roman Fort, and it was substantially changed during the Victorian period. The city became the county town and free borough in the 15th century. At the same time, the Royal Charters were granted to the city and became a head port for collection of customs duties. The creator of modern Cardiff John Crichton was born in 1793 and spent the whole life in building the Cardiff docks. The town faced rapid growth with the construction of the dock and became the main port for exports of coal from the valleys of Rhymney and Cynon. The city was chosen as the site of the University College South Wales and Monmouthshire and got the status of the premier town in South Wales in 1893. The Maindy Barracks were built in the city at the end of 18th century to accommodate military permanently. The city captured a Roman Catholic Cathedral and granted the city status at the beginning of 19th century.During the interwar period, Cardiff docks entered into the phase of continued decline and faced a significant slump in demand for Welsh coal. Llandaff Cathedral and Cardiff Blitz were destroyed during the Second World War ended the linkage between Bute family and the Cardiff city. 

Economy

Industries played a significant role in the growth of the Welsh economy. The primary factors contributed towards the transformation of a small town into a big city was the coal demand as it was used in the manufacturing of iron and steel. The city has the most important and busiest coal port in the world, also known as Tiger Bay. The city is home to various notable companies related to education, public administration, infrastructure, insurance and health sectors such as British Gas, ING Direct, HBOS, The AA and SWALEC Energy.
