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 Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the centre city of Scotland. The area is also under the jurisdiction of the council state.During the period of 15th century, it was also a capital city. The Scottish parliament runs administration from this city only. The king used to rule in the Edinburgh in the medieval era. Being a part of the Midlothian area, Edinburg has been known as a centre of learning for Scott Law, Medicine, literature, engineering and the various sciences. After London, it is the next important city for fiscal matters. Edinburgh has also become the United Kingdom’s second most common traveller terminus after London.

Geography

The city is near to Scotland's Central Belt owing to which it is also surrounded by hills of nearby areas. The city centre is 2 1⁄2 miles southwest of the shoreline of Leith and 26 miles inland from the east coast of Scotland and the North Sea at Dunbar. The early burgh which looks like the Seven Hills of Rome is often said to be constructed on Arthur's Seat Calton Hill, Craiglockhart Hill, Corstorphine Hill, Braid Hill, Blackford Hill, and the Castle Rock. Edinburgh actually came up near the prominent Castle Rock.

There is a gap created by volcanic plugs millions of years ago between the Firth of Forth to the north and the Pentland Hills to the south. In addition to these, another hollow on the rock's south side formed a natural stronghold that formed the basis for building the Edinburgh Castle. The place from where the glacier receded is now occupied by the residential areas of Marchmont and Bruntsfield.
