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 Sheffield

Sheffield is also known as the Steel City to the entire world. In its prime during the 1900’s it was known for its industry. Today, however, this very same industrial city boasts of lush green parks. The city presents the localities and visitors with cultural scenes that include theatres, festivals, street arts, music and much more. Deriving its name from the River Sheaf, the city is located in South Yorkshire, England.

Transport

Road

Sheffield links to the national highway through the M1 and M18 motorways. The city centre is connected with the motorways by the Sheffield Parkway.

Rail

The following are the routes that pass through Sheffield:

  • The Midland Main Line
  • The Cross Country Route
  • Routes that link the cities of Liverpool and Manchester with East Anglia and East Anglia.

Sheffield now has a direct connection to mainland Europe with the St Pancras International completed. There are trains from France and Belgium that connect to Sheffield railway station. The express train known as the Master Cutler connects Sheffield to the capital city.

 In 2010 the ruling government announced in October 2010 that Sheffield and Leeds would be served by the same line, which will also connect to Manchester, due to the proposed High-Speed Rail network. Another line proposed to begin by 2025, the Yorkshire/East Midlands High-Speed line, will be in service by 2032.

Other trains that serve Sheffield are provided by TransPennine Express, Northern and CrossCountry. The city has five other railway stations. Meadowhall, the second largest station in Sheffield serves as a bus, rail and tram interchange. Other commuter stations include services from Dore and Totley, Woodhouse, Chapeltown and Darnall.

Coach

The National Express and the Megabus are two services that operate the coach services in Sheffield. National Express serves the interchanges at Sheffield, Meadowhall and Meadowhead Bus Stop. Megabus only serves Meadowhall. Sheffield is connected by the National Express route 560/564 to London Victoria Coach Station through Chesterfield and Milton Keynes directly. It operates on the route 12 times a day bi-directionally. The two services that connect Sheffield to Manchester and Heathrow/Gatwick Airports respectively are 350 and 240.The M12 and M20, which are services provided by Megabus, call at Sheffield on the way to London from Newcastle upon Tyne and Inverness respectively.

Canal

A system navigable inland waterways - the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation (S&SY)  in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – is mainly based on the River Don which runs for a length of 43 miles with 29 locks. These waterways connect Doncaster, Sheffield,    and Rotherham with the River Trent at Keadby and the Aire and Calder Navigation.

Air

The Sheffield City Airport in 2008 had to be shut down. The entire traffic from Sheffield was as thus to the Doncaster Sheffield Airport which is at a distance of 29 km from the city centre. The airport used to be the site of former RAF Finningley base. The airport opened to the public on 28 April 2005. In a year the airport is capable of handling a million passengers.

A link road that was inaugurated in February 2016 and connects Doncaster Sheffield Airport to the M18 motorway has reduced the journey time from Sheffield by approx. 15  minutes.

The East Midlands Airport is an hour's drive from Sheffield while Manchester Airport connects to Sheffield directly through an hourly train.
