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 Worcester

Worcester is a town in Worcestershire, England. It is a non-metropolitan country. It is a junction point for Gloucester and Birmingham. It is a non-metropolitan district. River Severn flows to the west of the town Centre. The Population of the region is nearly 1 lakh. During civil war era, the Battle of Worchester was the last and most deadly war in the region. The famous composer Edward Elgar also belongs to this place. The world oldest newspaper Berrow’s Worchester journal is published here.

History

Roman Ryknild Street was a trading route in New Stone age. During the 3rd century, most of the Worchester area lost to Roman Empire. Some area had become useless because of the silting of Diglis Basin. It also impacted the industrial production. St. Helen’s is the famous church of the region. The major devastation of the town did happen in 1041 after rebellion for taxation. The cloth industry boomed during the medieval era where 10000 population approximately shifted to this industry and ultimately hub for the corporate world. Worcester was the place of war when Charles II tried to regain the territory. Again he lost. Finally, he escaped to France to save his life. Worcester always fought for a parliamentarian form of government. During late 16th century, the Severn’s river banks got burst and it leads to heavy loss of property. During Second World War time, the role of the city was very prominent. It was termed as the safest evacuation route in case of the German forces invade. The Royal Worcester porcelain company puts off its services in 2009. The medical museum ‘’Infirmary’’ is constructed from old wards infrastructure in 2012.

Till 2007, the conservatives had control over the council. They lost the control after losing by-election seat to the Labour party. Still, they are leading in councillors numbers with 17 seats out of 35. But it has been Worchester city council that is looking after its administration. Robin Walker of the conservative party is the current MP of this region. The local government structure is formed as a non-metropolitan council.
