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 Sunderland

Sunderland is a coastal city lies at the mouth of the Wear River, around 80 meters above sea level. It is located in the centre of the City of Sunderland metropolitan borough, local government district in England with a population of around 174,286 according to 2011 census. It is situated about 10 miles southeast of Newcastle and 240 miles north of London. The River Wear flows through the centre of the town and divides in a deeply incised valley. The town’s name is originated from sundered land meaning land kept aside for a special purpose or land sundered. The evidence of three settlements found historically in a county in North East England or County Durham on the site of present-day Sunderland.

The area of Sunderland Monkwearmouth is located on the north bank of the Wear River and settled in 674 during the foundation of Jarrow Abbey by the Benedict Biscop. Another settlement Bishopwearmouth founded in 930, lies at the southern side of the river. The town developed as a port over a period and became famous for trading salt and coal. The construction of ships started on the river in the 14th century. With the passage of time, the port of the town absorbed Monkwearmouth and Bishopwearmouth by the 19th century. The town became the major centre for the automotive industry and the service sector. It has been suggested that the person who is born or lives in the town, sometimes known as Mackem. The concept came into existence in the late 20th century and not used until 1980.

History

The early inhabitants of the town were the hunter-gatherers during Stone Age. The remains of the period were found during the excavations of St Peter’s Church in Monkwearmouth including the artefacts and microliths. The area of Hastings Hill became a primary place of burial and central point of activity in the Neolithic period, the final phase of the Stone Age. In the pre and post-Roman period, the area was occupied by the Brigantes around the Wear River. During the Anglo-Saxon era, the town became an important centre of knowledge and learning and library with approximately 300 volumes was also located in the town.  

The long trench, a tactic of warfare was found as one artefact of the English civil war. In the 17th century, the three original settlements (Monkwearmouth, Sunderland and Bishopwearmouth) were integrated and known as Sunderland-near-the-Sea. The factors behind the incorporation included the construction of ships on the banks of the river, salt panning and success of the port of Sunderland. The construction of Sunderland barracks was completed in 1794. These barracks included the 80-bed hospital, soldier’s quarters and housing for 1528 infantry troops. The second iron bridge of the world was built in the town in 1796.

The town was severally affected by the major Indian epidemic Cholera, broke out in the town in 1831. The disease spread in other parts of the country resulted in the death of more than 32000 people. The town again suffered from the worst disaster of the Victoria Hall in 1883 leading to the death of 183 children due to lack of enough way to pass during a variety show. This led to the invention of the concept of push bar emergency doors. The economy of the town shifted to chemical and motor manufacturing after the fall of heavy industries in the early 19th century. The electric tram system arrived in the town in 1900, later on, these were replaced by the buses in 1940.

The town saw remarkable expansion in the shipbuilding business during the First World War and became the prime target of a Zeppelin raid in 1916. Approx. 2500 citizens of the town served in the armed forces during the war period. The town also attacked by the German bombers during the Second World War leading to the destruction of 4000 homes and death of 267 people in the town. The coal mining and shipbuilding industry declined and ended by the late 20th century resulted in the unemployment of the local workforce.
