Lean Six Sigma Training

Streamlining processes with Lean Six Sigma

TOPIC INTRODUCTION

In earlier times, organisations depended on the experience of the professionals for their projects to succeed. The way to success depended upon how a manager had solved a particular problem earlier. Sometimes success was not even granted and led to incomplete projects and losses to the organisation. It was Motorola in the late 1980’s who took the initiative to start following an approach called “muda” (Japanese) or waste reduction. According to this approach, the unwanted processes are removed from the production line to achieve better results and productivity. Sometime later “muda” came to be known as Six Sigma and along with Lean, it became Lean Six Sigma.  While Lean relies on a collective team effort that helps improve operations by reducing variation, Six Sigma removes the eight kinds of wastes.

  • Remove waste processes with Lean Six Sigma

  • Understand the 5S Techniques

  • Know What is MUDA and the DMAIC

  • Learn an Industry independent Methodology

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Lean Six Sigma helps remove the eight kinds of waste from the production line. These can be classified as:

  • Transporting
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-Processing
  • Over-Production
  • Defects
  • Under Utilization of employees

 

To tighten up the links between the processes, Lean Six Sigma removes the process variations occur in the process steps of a project. It is the Japanese 5s technique that is followed to implement this methodology. To streamline, five processes to be followed are listed below in that very order:

  • Sort
  • Straighten
  • Shine
  • Standardise
  • Sustain

 

In the Lean Six Sigma training at MSP Training, the training contains Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade courses.

Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course serves as a foundation level course to those delegates who are new to the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It teaches the basics of the Lean Six Sigma methodology to the delegates who are new to it.

A professional can be certified as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt if he/she is a Yellow Belt Professional already. In case the delegate is not a Yellow Belt professional, the course content of the Yellow Belt course will be covered in the Green Belt course also.

The highest level of a Lean Six Sigma that the MSP training covers is the Black Belt course. A Black Belt professional leads a team of Green Belt professionals. It is a must for the delegates sitting for the Black Belt course that they come along with a Green Belt project to be completed after the Black Belt course. The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course is the highest level achievable by a professional undergoing the Lean Six Sigma training.

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade course is another course for which a professional can opt at MSP Training. Though equal in value to the Black Belt course, it is different in that it does not teach the concepts up to Green Belt rather starts directly with the Black Belt concepts.

ABOUT Oxford

Oxford lies in the central southern region of the England with a population of around 168,270 according to the survey conducted in 2015. It also serves as a county town of Oxfordshire and becomes the 52nd largest city in the United Kingdom.  The city also known as the city of dreaming spires, lies 57 miles from London, 65 miles from both Birmingham and Southampton and 40 miles from Reading. The city became famous after the establishment of prestigious and oldest university ‘University of Oxford’ in the 12th century. The early evidence of the city found back to Saxon period and buildings of the city depict the English influence or architectural period. The economy of the city grew is primarily based on information technology, education, motor manufacturing, publishing and science-based businesses.

History

The history of the city found its root back to the Saxon times. It has been suggested that the name of the city is derived from Oxenaforda meaning Ford of the Oxen (Oxen crossed the river through fords than bridges around AD 900). During the empire of Wessex and Mercia, the city grew as an important military frontier town.  Danes attacked the city for several times and killed during the St Brice’s Day massacre in the 10th century. Recently, the skeletons of the victims were found during the construction work of St John’s College.

In 1066, Norman Invasion had severally damaged the town and later on the responsibility of the town was handed over to Robert D’Oyly. The Oxford castle was built to verify the authority of the Norman over the area. The castle still stands today and has never utilised for military purposes. The monastic community was also established in the castle and recognised as the oldest places of formal education in the Great Britain. King Henry II granted the charter to the city resulted in the construction of the various religious houses and residents availed the same exemptions and other benefits as enjoyed by the capital of the kingdom.

The city was affected by sweating sickness epidemic in the 15th century resulted in the death of half of the city’s population. The Cowley Barracks were constructed for establishing permanent military presence in the city. The Oxford canal was built in 1790, linked the city with the Coventry and Duke’s cut connected the new canal with the Thames River. The Great Western Railway was introduced in the city in 1844, connected the town to the cities of London and Reading.

The population of the university reduced heavily during the First World War and the university campus was being used for the training purposes by the soldiers. The city faced rapid industrial growth with the introduction of publishing and printing industries in the early 20th century. The city incorporated the suburbs of Wolvercote, Cowley and Headington. The economy of the city experienced huge transformation with the establishment of Morris Motors Limited. The major workforce of the city was employed in the Morris Motors and Pressed Steel Fisher plants. With the decline of British Leyland, the city faced unemployment between 1980 and 1990.    

The city was not much affected by the Second World War due to the absence of heavy steelwork and shipbuilding industries. But refugees from London and other cities of the country migrated to the city. The university buildings were also used as military barracks for short period. The city gained a cosmopolitan character with the arrival of cafes, clubs, bars and restaurants.
