Six Sigma Black Belt Workshop Phase III Sesa Sterlite

 

Six Sigma Black Belt Workshop in Sesa Sterlite Copper, Tuticorin

 

Last 2 issues, we have covered the Phase I & II of Six Sigma Black Belt workshop organized by NIQR, Head quarters in M/S Sesa Sterlite, Tuticorin.

III Phase of training: The 3rd phase of training (17th & 18th April 2015) started with Project Presentation by 5 teams. Each team was asked to take enough time to go deep in to their projects and explain the approach methodology they have adopted, and their conclusions. Accordingly each team took almost 1 hour to present their case studies.

 

The teams took current process bottleneck/critical problems like

  • Stripping Time reduction
  • Raw water consumption reduction at PAP
  • Arsenic removal in purification
  • Furnace oil consumption reduction
  • PAP evaporator capacity increase

and presented their case studies with enthusiasm and involvement.

Total estimated annual savings out of these 5 projects: Rs.4.3 crores wetted by their finance department.

As a matter of cross learning, Sterlite Management has invited Management team from M/s. Sri. Jayajothi & Co Ltd., Rajapalayam, for witnessing their case study presentations. Accordingly 9 people from various positions including GM Operations attended the case study presentations.

In the concluding session on 18th April 2015, NIQR Panel of Jury announced that all the 10 participants have met the minimum qualifying criteria set by NIQR and hence all were declared qualified as Six Sigma Black Belt.

The Six Sigma Black Belt certificates were presented to Mr. Rajasekar and Mr. Ramkumar on behalf of all the Sesa Sterlite participants by Prof Washio during the lecture meeting on 19th May 2015 at the Hotel Westin Chennai.
