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 Carlisle

Carlisle, also known as the Great Border City as it has a common border with Scotland and England, is located in Cumberland at the convergence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril.   It serves not only as the administrative centre for Cumbria County Council and Carlisle City Council but is also the largest settlement in the Cumbria County.  Carlisle is known to have been a Roman settlement. Carlisle became an important military settlement during the Middle Ages as it enjoyed the closeness with the Kingdom of Scotland. One of the main attractions of Carlisle is the Carlisle Castle which was built by William Rufus in 1092 AD and was to be the prison of the Queen of Scotts, Mary. In the 12th Century, by the order of Henry I, a nunnery came up in Carlisle. A diocese came into existence somewhere in the 1130’s and the priory became a cathedral that is now known as the Carlisle Cathedral. Carlisle is a place of historic importance as all the greats such as Celts, Romans, King Arthur and Bonnie Prince Charlie have either ruled or lived.

Later, the Industrial Revolution saw the rise of the textile industry and the beginning of a social as well as economical transformation in Carlisle.

Attractions

  • The Carlisle Castle: The Carlisle Castle has stood here for nine centuries. The Castle was home to the King’s Royal Border Regiment and even held Queen Mary of Scotts as a prisoner. As of today, it is a place of an exhibition that showcases its history to the generation of the 21st Century in the form of exhibitions. The Castle also has Cumbria's Museum of Military Life that depicts the arms and other objects used by the military of the various kings in battles and wars.
  • The Carlisle Cathedral: Carlisle Cathedral is considered to be a magnificent piece that has been taken from the history of North West England. Having stood on the border for almost 900 years it seems to say a tale of its own. Even though it is not the biggest cathedral in England, it delights the visitors due to its religious connections. Visitors come here just not to see the cathedral but also to make worship to the Lord and praise Him. Here religion is no bound. Anybody from any religion can come and sit in the congregation at these services. Visitors come here to discover stories of faith, love and hope.
  • Our Lady and St Joseph's Church: Built in the early 1890's, this church is a Roman Catholic Parish church. The church has a building that is listed as Grade II.

Transport

Owned and managed by the Stagecoach, the bus station serves Carlisle. Located on the Dury Lane are the bus station that is served by a travel centre and seven stands. The present station was a replacement for a larger station at the same site. The replacement took place in the 1990s. Stagecoach in Cumbria and Arrestation at the iva North East are the main operators of the bus station in Carlisle.

Media

For around 48 years, 1961 to 2009, Carlisle played host to the Border Television that served the ITV Border region. After 1970’s Border Television suffered a decline in both the quantity and the range of its output. The premises of the Border Television were demolished after it shutdown operation in 2010. No programs were telecast till 2014. Border Television announced its return to Carlisle in 2014. As far as the printed news is concerned, it is taken care of by  The Cumberland News. The newspaper is published every Friday.
