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 Chorley

A market town in England known for its cotton industry, Chorley is located around 20 miles North West of Manchester. In the 1970’s the town was home to a large number of factories which have now been demolished.  A few that remain from the said period are Morrison’s chimney and some mill buildings. Chorley finds the origin of its name in two Anglo-Saxon words ‘Ceori’ and ‘ley’ where the former stands for a person of some status and the latter refer to a place name.

Education

Chorley has a number of primary schools which are supported both by the council as well as the church. There are six high schools in Chorley as listed below:

  • Parklands High School
  • Michael's CE High School
  • Southlands High School
  • Albany Academy
  • Holy Cross Catholic High School
  • Bishop Rawstorne CE Academy

Some of the privately owned schools also run just outside the borough. Children also go to the Runshaw College for further studies which have expanded now into the administration site of ROF Chorley. Another college in Chorley is the Lancashire College that also offers adult education. The Lancashire College also provides exhaustive residential courses to its students. The Chorley Training College (also known as the College Day Training College since 1960) was another college for Chorley based students that functioned till 1981.

Media

There are two local newspapers that serve the citizens of Chorley - the weekly Chorley Guardian and the free Chorley Citizen. Chorley’s radio station, the Chorley FM, is a famous radio station having been cited in the  British comedy show on the television Phoenix Nights. The radio station got a full license to broadcast only in 2005. Earlier, the broadcasts took place for a few weeks.

A comedy series by Dave Spikey, Dead Man Weds, was based in Chorley. Most of the characters in Steve Pemberton’s The League of Gentlemen were taken from Adlington, located in Chorley.

Seal Films, which operates from Higher Wheelton, and is a film production company, was nominated for a short film in 2001 for a Royal Television Society Award.

Economy

The first industry that appeared in Chorley was mining.This can be seen today even as there is evidence of abandoned quarries today even in the outskirts of Chorley. The mining industry eventually gave way to the cotton mills.

The technology to manufacture trucks was borrowed from a neighbouring town, Leyland. Today even we can see trucks plying with the name Leyland imprinted on them in various parts of the world. During the Second World War, a large factory that was located on Pilling Lane was responsible for producing military vehicles and tanks.

During the latter half of the twentieth century, Chorley saw a decline in its manufacturing products as due to the Second World War. The losses occurred in important industries such as textiles, coal, motor vehicles and armaments industries.

Leyland Trucks and BAE Systems happen to be the biggest employers in Central Lancashire.

The companies which make their presence felt in Chorley are the BAE Systems, Telnet, FedEx, North West depot, CSC, Multipart Solutions Limited,  Porter Lancastrian, and Merlin Cycles.

The initiative “Choose Chorley” launched by the Chorley Council in 2011 encouraged the small scale and large scale enterprises to invest in Chorley. The council also launched a website for the same purpose in 2014 at www.choosechorley.co.uk. The website provides introductions to important personalities of Edinburgh people in the town, financial incentives and tailored support for business growth to those who wish to invest in Chorley.
