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 Warrington

Warrington is referred as unitary authority area in Cheshire with a population of around 208,800 recorded in 2016. It lies on the shore of the Mersey River. The town is referred as the largest town in the county of Cheshire, England. It is located between the towns of Manchester and Liverpool. The population of the town grew strongly since 1968, and it became a new town. The history of the area traced its root back to the Roman period. The Romans discovered the town at an important crossing place on the Mersey River, and the Saxons set up the new settlement of the town. Warrington developed as a market town at the lowest bridging point, a place which is crossed by a bridge at its closest point to the sea during the Medieval Period. The town was engaged in the business of textile and wool production in the middle ages.

The town experienced the urbanisation and expansion after the industrialisation took place in historical counties of England and when Mersey was made traversable in the 18th century. The vital railway corridors in the United Kingdom, West Coast Main Line, runs north to south and the Cheshire Lines connecting the towns of Liverpool and Manchester, runs west to east. The Manchester Ship Canal, 36 miles long inland waterway connecting Manchester to the Irish Sea cuts through the south of the town from west to east. The partial box is created around the town with M6 and M62 motorways. In 1974, with the combination of former County Borough of Warrington, the Lymm Urban District and the Warrington Rural District, the modern borough of Warrington was developed.

History

The early settlement of the town was established at Wilderspool during the Roman Empire. The evidence of Bronze Age settlements had been suggested by the local archaeologists. The town developed at an important crossing point on the Mersey River since the ancient times. The importance of the town grew and emerged as a market town and crossing point of the Mersey River. The early reference to the bridge was first found in 1285. The area around the St Elphin’s church, now covered under the Church Street Conservation Area represent the origin of the modern town.The town played a crucial role in the English Civil War. The old town centre served as a mainstay for the armies of the Earl of Derby and Oliver Cromwell. During the industrial revolution, the town evolved as a manufacturing town and became a centre of textiles, steel, tanning and chemical industries.

The town flourished and became more popular after the construction of canal and improvement in the navigational properties of the Mersey River. The town accepted the introduction of steam in the town and used as a source of power for its mills. The town served as a base for RAF Station Burtonwood and airfield for the largest US Army Air Force during the Second World War, The new town status granted to Warrington in 1968. With the decline of heavy industries between 1970 and 1980, the economy of the town shifted to the light industry and technology. The town was affected by the Provisional Irish Republican Army bomb attacks in the town centre and later on, a bomb attack on a gas storage plant in Warrington.    

Economy

Warrington is home to the Unilever and ESR Technology. The major employers of the town are Warrington Council and Warrington & Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In 1974, the first shopping centre was opened and covered new bus station and a Debenhams store. During the modernisation of the town centre, Warrington experienced a boost in its customer trade. There are several other shopping malls and large indoor market in the town. Gulliver’s World theme park is located in the town and covers Lilliput Land and the Safari Kingdom.
