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 Reading

Reading is a large town in Berkshire located in the Thames Valley with a population of around 162,700 recorded in 2016. The town is situated on the Thames and Kennet Rivers in southern England, and it is 42 miles west of London, 75 miles east of Bristol and 25 miles south of Oxford. The history of the town traced its roots back to 8th century. In the medieval period, the town was considered as a 10th largest town in England and served as the main trading and ecclesiastical centre.  One of the richest monasteries ‘Reading Abbey’ is also built in the town. The town was severally affected by English Civil war, and the wealth of the town declined with the major siege and loss of trade.

With the establishment of ironworks and Great Western Railway in the 18th and 19th century, the town grew rapidly and became the principal manufacturing centre. During that period, the economy of the town again flourished, and it became famous for its brewing trade. The town is crowned as leading economic area for economic success, and well-being and the factors contributing towards its growth are health, employment, and income. Due to its strategic location and establishment of information technology and insurance sector in the town, it became a major commercial and regional retail centre catering the needs of a large area of the Thames Valley.

The first evidence of settlement was found in the 8th century, and it is estimated that the town may date back to the Roman period. It was also referred as Readingum, the name derived from an Anglo-Saxon tribe in Old English. The first battle of the town was held in 871, and an army of Danes set up the camp and remained in the town until the end of 8th century. With the presence of six mills, Reading was explicitly known as a borough in 1086. In the 14th century, the most devastating pandemics Black Death also affected the city and lost 60% of its population.

Reading Abbey founded in 1121 was largely destroyed during the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538. The town was little affected by First and Second World War compared to other towns and cities of the United Kingdom. The town centre was attacked by Luftwaffe plane machine in 1943 resulted in many causalities. The town is ranked among one of the largest urban areas of the England, but it has not granted the city status so far even after bidding for three main occasions celebrated Diamond Jubilee, a new millennium and Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. All three bids remain unsuccessful.
