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 Ipswich

Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk and non-metropolitan district located 60 miles northeast of London. It lies at the mouth of the Orwell River with a population of around 133,384 according to 2011 census. The town derived its name either from Orwell estuary or an Anglo-Saxon personal name and it was also referred as Gippeswic, Yppswyche, and Gyppewicus. The town became famous in early times for its major port Ipswich Dock which has been England’s one of the major trading port. It was also considered UK’s one of the most prosperous city since Anglo-Saxon period.

The rural towns and settlements were connected to the area around the town via the rivers Gipping and Orwell during the Roman Empire. The largest Roman villa and fort were built during the Roman Empire and still stands at Castle Hill and Walton near Felixstowe respectively. The Sutton Hoo treasures and replicas of the Roman Mildenhall are still preserved in the museum of the town. The modern town has been continuously occupied around Ipswich dock since the Saxon period. After the abandonment of Roman period, the development of coastal states of north-western Europe came into existence. The former Roman ports of London served as major communication and trading port between eastern Britain and the continents of Scandinavia and Rhine.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Grace of the town became a famous pilgrimage destination and attracted many pilgrims during the middle ages. The independent Ipswich Institute reading room and library were built in 1824 and still survives today. The town was targeted by German Zeppelins and bombing raids during the First and Second World War resulted in many casualties and destruction of the area in and around the docks. The town has undergone a considerable redevelopment around the waterfront and industrial dock area was rebuilt into the residential and commercial centre.
