PROGRAM OVERVIEW

There are 8 kinds of wastes that an organisation may face. They are described as “DOWNTIME” – an acronym for

  • D – Defective Processes
  • O – Overprocessing
  • W – Waiting Period
  • N – Non-Used Employee Talent
  • T – Transport
  • I – Inventory
  • M – Motion
  • E – Excess Production

To avoid the problems caused by DOWNTIME, Lean Six Sigma recommends the 5s technique which every Lean Six Sigma professional is familiar with. This 5s technique is made up of the following 5 steps (names provided both in English as well as Japanese)

  • Sort (Seiri)
  • Straighten (Seiton)
  • Shine(Seiso)
  • Standardise(Seiketsu)
  • Sustain(Shitsuke)

The first step, Sort, makes work easier as it eliminates the obstacles and reduces the chances of being disturbed with unnecessary items. It also removes unwanted processes or items that are not required in the production phase.

The second step, Straighten, arranges all items in a first cum first serve basis so as to easily select them for use. The third step, Shine, focuses on keeping the workplace clean such that any kind of machinery is not affected. The fourth step, Standardize, selects the best steps to be followed for the production. The last step, Sustain, refers to keeping everything in order and also make sure that standards are implemented.

In any organisation, during the production process, waste is bound to occur. Generally, this can happen as unnecessary steps creeping into the production line or processes executing with varying times. Both ways the production is affected and organisation will go into a loss. Implementation of Lean Six Sigma methods help the organisations out of such conditions. Lean Six Sigma has three levels that professionals can take up starting from the Yellow Belt, into the Green Belt and finally the Black Belt. However, there is a fourth course that is offered by Lean Six Sigma – the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade course. This course focuses on professionals who are already Green Belt Professionals and want to upgrade to Black Belt. Unlike the Black Belt course, the Upgrade version for the same does not teach the concepts of Green Belt before going into the Black Belt course.

Exam

A delegate must attempt 100 questions in the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade exam. A minimum of 70% marks is required to get the certification. The language of the exam is English. In case the delegates require any other information they will be provided with the same by the examiner just before the exam.

ABOUT Brighton

Brighton is a seaside resort town located within the historic county of Sussex with a population of around 289,200 according to mid-2016 survey. It is situated on the southern coast of England and lies between the South Downs to the north and the English Channel to the south. The importance of the town grew with the development of the old town in the middle ages, but it has become dull and severally affected by foreign attacks and storms in the early modern period. The economy and population of the city faced a huge decline in that era. The consequences of it lead to loss of jobs and thus people started migrating from here in search of work.

The town flourished as a fashionable seaside resort and major tourism centre with the arrival of railways in 1841. The town also became a boarding point for boats travelling to France and also gained popularity after enhanced road transport to London. The town began to attract more visitors for sea bathing health resort provide the natural cure for illnesses and it became a popular seaside destination for foreign tourists. It was the time when people coming back to the same place. It was a very happy moment for them because at least the city gave them chance to reside one more time.

History

The early evidence of the settlement in the area was Whitehawk Camp, one of six causewayed enclosures in Sussex.  A number of villas were built by Romans in Brighton and developed farming settlements in the area. Roman period abandoned in early 4th century and Anglo-Saxons had taken the control and area formed part of the Kingdom of Sussex in the late 5th century. The town grew its importance in the Norman era and became Sussex’s most populous town with the arrival of mackerel fishing industry.

More foreign attacks, storms, and establishment of significant nearby port, Shoreham affected the growth of the city leading to declining population and suffering economy. The city had gone through a rapid transformation in the 17th century after Dr Richard Russell encouraged many patients to drink and bath in seawater and take the cure for illnesses in the sea of Brighton. 

Economy

Three myths were described in the economy of the Brighton by the Borough Council in 1985. Most common beliefs were that the tourism played a significant role in the jobs and income of the town, the majority of working population commuted to London every day and residents of the town composed entirely of retired business class and wealthy theatricals. During 19th and 20th century, the city became famous for the manufacturing of steam locomotives and its rail works contributed to rail industry of England.

Brighton is crowned as one of five super cities for the future according to the survey conducted in 2001. The city has been a major centre for retail, recreation, and employment, it is home to 9600 registered companies and tourism industry alone provides job opportunities to more than 20,000 people directly or indirectly. All these factors create huge job employment for native people as well as nearby town people.

Education

Brighton and Hove City Council administer 54 schools in the Brighton. There are a number of states, independent and some faith schools in the city include Patcham High School, Roedean School, Montessori School and Brighton Aldridge Community Academy. For higher education, the city is served by the University of Sussex, University of Brighton and other city colleges. According to the survey conducted by World University Rankings, University of Sussex is ranked 110th in the world and 18th in the United Kingdom.
