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 Manchester

Manchester is one of the major cities in the northwest of England. According to 2015 census, its population was 530,300. With 2.55 million population, it is the second most popular urban area in the UK. Manchester City Council is the local authority in the Manchester.

The history of Manchester began with the civilian settlement that was established in AD 79 on a sandstone nearby the rivers Irwell and Medlock. The areas lying on the south bank of the River Mersey were merged in the 20th century and it became the part of Lanchester city.

Manchester remained the manorial township throughout the middle ages but started to expand in the turn of 19th century “at an astonishing rate”.  The unplanned urbanisation of Manchester come to boom with the revolution of textile manufacturing. As a result, it becomes the world’s first industrialised city.

Manchester gained the status of a city in 1853. In 1894, the Ship Canal was opened in Manchester. It creates the Manchester’s Port and joins the city and sea. Its prosperity fainted during the Second World War as this war resulted in deindustrialisation. In 1996, the IRA bombing led to broad investment and regeneration. 

Governance

Manchester City Council governs the city Manchester. In 1986, the prior Greater Manchester County Council was eliminated making it a unitary authority. Manchester is a member of English Core Cities Group since 1995. Thomas Greeley granted an agreement to the town of Manchester in 1301. In 1359, its borough status was gone in some court case.

During the winters, the temperature rarely follows below the freezing. There is general rainfall throughout the year. Manchester has an average of annual rainfall is 806.6 mm.

This means that 140.4 days per annum are rainy. The average of UK is 154.4 days per annum. It has high humidity level along with a great supply of soft water. This is one of the crucial factors that results in textile industry localization. Because of urban warming effect in the city, snowfall is not very common.

Demography

It is an increase of 1.6 since the 2011 MYE. The population has evolved to 20.8% since 2001. According to 2011 census, Manchester is the third fastest growing area. Manchester experienced the great percentage of growth outside the London with an increase of 500,000. With the increase of 2.8 % from 2011, the population is projected to reach 532,200 by 2021.

Along with Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford, the Office for National Statistics produce economic data for Manchester city. The growth of the economy is comparatively high between 2002 and 2012 where growth was 2.3% that is above the national average of the Manchester.

The UK’s wide-ranging economy of the metropolitan is the third largest with GDP of $88.3 bn. As it continues to recover from the recession that is faced in 2008-10, Manchester compares favourably to other geographies. It reports the annual growth of 5% in business stock.
