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 Portsmouth

Portsmouth,  situated on the Portsea Island,70-miles south-west of London, in Hampshire is home to 205,400 people. Portsmouth is said to have been existing during the Roman civilization too. Portsmouth for many centuries has served the Royal Navy as well. During the French invasion of 1545, Portsmouth is said to have served England as a line of defence. It is also known as the oldest dry dock of the world.

Portsmouth became the first to go into mass production. As such it also came to be known for being an industrialized city. The Portsmouth Blitz, during the Second World War, claimed 930 lives, as a result of bombing by the Nazi forces. The troops deployed to liberate the Falkland Islands in 1982 were from the Portsmouth’s naval base. When Hong Kong, the last British colony, was to be transferred, The Queen’s yacht Britannia left to Hongkong from Portsmouth.

Literature

‘Pompey’, a novel by Jonathan Meades, shows Portsmouth as the home of many criminals.Fanny Park, the lead character, in Jane Austen's novel Mansfield Park, is a resident of Portsmouth. Incidentally, many of Jane Austen’s made sure that her novels came to end in the Portsmouth city. In his novel, ‘The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby', Charles Dickens has portrayed Nicholas and Smike getting involved in a theatrical troupe in Portsmouth. The Aubrey-Martin series by Patrick O’Brian mostly saw Captain Jack Aubrey’s ships sailing from Portsmouth.

Many crime novels such D.I. Faraday/D.C. Winter novels by Graham Hurley and the Heartsone by C.J.Samson were set in Portsmouth.Published in 2014, the ‘Portsmouth Fairy Tales for Grown Ups’, had locations in its stories that were from around Portsmouth.

Sport

The Fratton Park is the home ground for Portsmouth F.C. The team has been victorious twice winning the Football League titles in 1949 and 1950. The team was victorious in the FA Cup in 1939 and 2008. The team once again started playing the Premier League in the 2003 season. 2010 to 2012 was a period of great difficulties for the team. They went down to the Championship level and then to LeagueOne by 2012. 2013 saw them further relegated to the fourth tier of the English Football, the League Two. Pompey Supporters Trust, in April 2013, purchased the team and made it making it the biggest fan-owned football club in the history of English Football.

Yet another football club has been the Moneyfields F.C, which based in Portsmouth has played in the Wessex Football League Premier Division since 1998.

The Wessex League Division One has two teams playing from Portsmouth which are - United Services Portsmouth F.C (formed in 1962 and known as the Portsmouth Royal Navy earlier) and Baffins Milton Rovers F.C.(formed in 2011).

It is at the United Services Recreation Ground in Ports in Portsmouth is the place where the matches between the two teams, Royal Navy Rugby Union and United Services Portsmouth RFC, are held.

The United Services Recreation Ground was home to first-class cricket since 1882. It was in 1895  that Hampshire County Cricket Club also played their matches at the same ground for the next 105 years (i.e. till 2000 AD). In 2000 AD, Hampshire moved to the Rose Bowl cricket ground in West End. Portsmouth also plays host to a number of hockey clubs  such as
