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 Leicester

Leicester is a city lies in the East Midlands area of England. It is the unitary authority area located on the Soar River with a population of around 329,839 according to 2011 census. It is the county town of Leicestershire and the most populous area of the East Midland region. It is located at the crossing of two major railway lines as well as the confluence of the trunk routes and the motorways. Leicester, one of the oldest cities in England located near the National Forest’s eastern end. In 1889, the town became a county borough but later on it was dissolved in 1974 under Local Government Act, and finally, the city got its unitary status in 1997. The city is controlled by the Labour Party which is divided into three Parliamentary constituencies.

History

The history of the oldest city dates back at least two millennia. The Roman settlement came into existence around AD 47. Lindum, Bridge on the Fosse Way and Roman road were built in the city by the Corieltauvian settlement. It remains a matter of contention whether development was fortified by Romans. Recently, evidence of Roman cemetery was discovered outside the old city walls depicts the artwork of 300 AD. Other remaining found include the Roman Leicester baths are preserved and displayed at the adjacent museum. After the abandonment of Roman Empire, the city was governed by the kingdom of Mercia. The city became one of the five burghs of the Danelaw for a short period during the rule of Danish Vikings.

In 1790, Grand Union Canal was built in the city connected Leicester to Birmingham and London. With the arrival of railways in 1832, nearby collieries supplied coal to the city. Large mills, workshops and factories started setting up particularly along the river and canal. This development promoted the process of industrialisation and population of the city grew rapidly from 68,100 to 211,600 between 1861 and 1901. Major industrial employers include textiles, clothing and shoes had opened their manufacturing premises in the city.

Education

The city has a number of independent and comprehensive schools including grammar schools and three sixth form colleges. The local education authority of the city was established in 1997, but it has faced an enormous trouble during the local government reorganisation. The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills conducted an enquiry and found few strengths and many weaknesses in the educational authority. Although there has been a considerable improvement in the education system and steps have been taken to improve since then included the opening of Samworth Enterprise Academy, planning a new Children and Young People’s Services department.

Economy

The city has the largest economy in the East Midlands and home to major employers such as Everard's brewing, Brantano Footwear, Cambridge and Counties Bank, Dunelm Mill, DHL, HSBC and Santander banking, British Gas, Topps Tiles, British Telecom and Caterpillar. The GVA of the city is estimated to be 15.3 billion pounds according to a recent study by Experian.  Engineering sector played a significant role in the growth of the economy. The city houses engineering companies include Transmon Engineering, Jones and Shipman and Trelleborg. The two major shopping malls, Haymarket Shopping Centre and Highcross Leicester were built in the city. 

Transportation

The city is served by East Midlands International Airport located 20 miles north-northwest of the city and Leicester railway station located towards the eastern end of the centre of the city. The airport also serves as an important national hub for mail and freight networks of the major distributors. There are two main bus stations in the city: Haymarket Bus Station and St Margaret’s Bus Station. The rail network faced rapid growth in the city with the arrival of Eurostar international services.
