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 Lincoln

Lincoln which is situated in Lincolnshire, is a cathedral city and as per 2011 census had a population of 94,600. In the early periods, it was known as Lindum Colonia, a Roman colony. Lindum Colonia had come up from a settlement of the Iron Age that belonged to the 1st Century B.C. The settlement was the result of a deep pool and the name also probably comes from the word Lindon which was later converted to the Latin form Lindum. The full name for the location was  Colonia Domitiana Lindensium, which went by its founder, Domitian’s name. The colony was established within the walls of the hilltop fortress, to which an extension was also added later on, of an equal area.

Cathedral

First of all the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral began with the see being removed from the backwater of Dorchester-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. It was completed in 1092 but had to be rebuilt after a fire destroyed it. The cause of the fire is said to have been an earthquake that shook Lincoln in 1185. When the Lincoln Minster was rebuilt it had an added portion to the east.  The construction was completed on a superb scale with the crossing tower decorated by a pinnacle that rose to 525 ft, and considered to be the highest Europe has ever had till date. After the completion of all the three spires, the central spire is expected to be the tallest man-made structure in the world after the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

The Bishops of Lincoln were said to be one of the richest people in medieval England. The Diocese of Lincoln, considered to be the biggest in England, was home to more monasteries than the entire English counties put together.

When Magna Carta, the charter to bring peace between the king and rebel barons, was signed, one of the witnesses happened to be the Bishop of Lincoln, Hugh of Wells. There is only one copy that remains of the four originals and that is in the Lincoln Castle.

Lincoln Cathedral

The bishops of Lincoln who were most known were :

  • Robert Bloet
  • Hugh of Avalon
  • Robert Grosseteste
  • Henry Beaufort
  • Thomas Wolsey
  • Philip Repyngdon
  • Thomas Rotherham

Theologian William de Montibus was the chancellor and head of the cathedral school till his death in 1213. The Bishop’s Palace was the centre of administration. Built towards the end of the 12th Century, it was a magnificent building of that era in England. The East Hall of the Palace, designed by Hugh of Lincoln, is the earliest enduring example of a roofed domestic hall. Bishop William of Alnwick was responsible for building the other two parts namely the chapel range and entrance tower. It was he who also improvised upon the existing structure and lend a modern look to it in the 1430s. King Henry VIII and James I are said to have been e guests of the bishops at Lincoln Cathedral. Some royal troops ransacked the cathedral in 1648 during the civil war. The cathedral had another recent break-in due to which the stained glass had to be replaced.
