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 Canterbury

Canterbury is a historic cathedral city located on the River Stour in the Southeast England. It is located 55 miles southeast of London with a population of around 43,432 in 2011 census. The nearby villages and suburbs of the city include Rough Common, Harbledown, Tyler Hill, Hales Place, Sturry, and Wincheap.

The two wings further combine on the northeast edge of the city. Canterbury local government district covers the area of Herne and Whitstable Bay and Member of Parliament elected in the city is Rosie Duffield of Labour Party. Under Local Government Act, the city became a county borough, later on, it lost its county borough status and afterward, Kent County Council has taken the full control.

The city was redeveloped with the construction of the temple, public baths, theatre and roads with grid pattern by the Romans. They also built a wall with seven gates and an earth bank around the city to safeguard from Barbarians attack. After the abandonment of Roman period, Anglo-Saxon community developed within the city walls and trade developed in textile, pottery and leather sector.

The most serious epidemics Black Death affected the city in the 13th century and a population of the city declined from 10,000 to 3,000. Between 17th and 18th century, the castle of the city fell into disrepair and six gates were demolished. The silk industry was closed and trade was limited to only wheat and hops. The world’s first passenger railway came into existence in 1830 connected the town to a larger network of South Eastern Railway. The city was affected by First and Second World War destroyed 296 buildings and 731 homes and resulted in the death of 115 people. The redevelopment of the city took place ten years after the war and ring road was constructed to avoid growing problem of traffic congestion along with the development of Christ Church College and the University of Kent at Canterbury.
