Risk Diagram (Process Decision Program Chart)

Risk Diagram (Process Decision Program Chart)

The Risk Diagram determines the risks of potential obstacles during corrective actions, and helps develop preventive actions.


Determine the risks that corrective action may have if would not performed correctly.
Prepare preventive actions for them.

A useful way of planning is to break down tasks into a hierarchy, using a tree diagram. The PDPC extends the tree diagram a couple of levels to identify risks and countermeasures for the bottom level tasks. Different shaped boxes are used to highlight risks and identify possible countermeasures (often shown as 'clouds' to indicate their uncertain nature). The PDPC is similar to the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) in that both identify risks, consequences of failure, and contingency actions; the FMEA also rates relative risk levels for each potential failure point.

How to create Process Decision Program Chart

  • The Process Decision Program Chart (located in Input tab) opens with a new action planning template
  • Use the template to identify the "Project Plan" and the related information (phase, task, risk, counter measure)
  • From Output tab, under "7 Management & Planning Tools", select Process Decision Program Chart
  • Results will be automatically drawn in ConceptDraw PRO v9

Analyze each identified action separately in the tree of all actions and then develop a preventive action in response to potential obstacles or circumstances have been identified as a risk. The PDPC determines the risks when corrective action is not performed correctly. Also, it helps develop descriptions for preventive actions at the level of execution.Risk Diagram (Process Decision Program Chart)

Cross-Functional Flowchart

There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart. This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.Cross-Functional Flowchart. flowchart maker

Affinity Diagram

The Affinity Diagram shows the structure of large, complex factors that have an influence on a problem, and then divides them up into a smaller and simpler structure. The Affinity Diagram does not show a causal relationship between the factors. This diagram is designed to prepare the data for further analysis of the cause-effect relationships.Affinity Diagram
