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.

The traces of the early human settlement of the area was found at Mixes hill and Round Green. The 250,000 years old Palaeolithic encampments were also found at the same place. The remains of the Neolithic period included Waulud’s Bank is much more common. It has been believed that the town is discovered by the Anglo-Saxons in the 6th century and named the city after River Lea. The town’s population was around 800, and the economy was based on the agriculture. The work of the St Mary’s Church was completed in 1137. In 1139, a motte and bailey castle was built, later on, it was demolished in 1154. The place of the castle is now occupied by British fashion and homeware retailer, Matalan. There were six watermills in the town during the Medieval Period.  

In the 13th century, a market for surrounding villages was held in the town every year. The second fair was granted to the town from 1338 with the growth of the town. The town was severally affected by the large fire in 1336. However, the town was rebuilt rapidly after the fire. The agriculture base of the town was replaced by brick making industry in the 16th century, and many older wooden houses were rebuilt in brick. The Royalists entered the town during the English Civil War and demanded goods and money in the 17th century. The royalists were attacked by parliamentary forces, and most of the royalists escaped from the town. The hat making industry dominated the economy of the town by the 18th century. The hat making business is still into operations but on the very smaller scale. In 1722, the first Luton Workhouse was built on Dunstable Road.

The population of the town was recorded 3095 in 1801. The town saw a large expansion in the 19th century resulted in the population of around 39,000 by 1901. The gas was supplied to the town in 1834 and gas street lights were elevated in 1847. The work of water and sewerage system was completed in 1860 followed by the major epidemic cholera spread in the town in 1848. The town gained the status of the borough in 1876. The hat making industry was replaced by other industries in the 20th century. The largest car plant was opened by Vauxhall Motors in 1905 and employed 30,000 people. The production of cars was ended in 2000, and the plant closed in 2002.   

Economy

Traditionally, the town’s economy has been based on Car manufacturing and engineering sector. The focus of the economy is now shifting to service industry particularly in the retail and airport sectors. However, the light industry still operates in the town.
