The Fishbone Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw PRO v10 software with the ability to easily draw the Fishbone Diagrams (Ishikawa Diagrams) to clearly see the cause and effect analysis and also problem solving. The vector graphic diagrams produced using this solution can be used in whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters, and published technical material. Read more
"Ishikawa diagrams (also called fishbone diagrams, herringbone diagrams, cause-and-effect diagrams, or Fishikawa) are causal diagrams created by Kaoru Ishikawa (1968) that show the causes of a specific event. Common uses of the Ishikawa diagram are product design and quality defect prevention, to identify potential factors causing an overall effect. Each cause or reason for imperfection is a source of variation. Causes are usually grouped into major categories to identify these sources of variation. The categories typically include:
- People: Anyone involved with the process
- Methods: How the process is performed and the specific requirements for doing it, such as policies, procedures, rules, regulations and laws
- Machines: Any equipment, computers, tools, etc. required to accomplish the job
- Materials: Raw materials, parts, pens, paper, etc. used to produce the final product
- Measurements: Data generated from the process that are used to evaluate its quality
- Environment: The conditions, such as location, time, temperature, and culture in which the process operates" [Ishikawa diagram. Wikipedia]
The fishbone diagram example "Causes of low-quality output" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving

Problems are obstacles and challenges that one should overcome to reach the goal. They are an inseparable part of any business, and the success of an enterprise often depends on ability to solve all problems effectively. The process of problem solving often uses rational approach, helping to find a suitable solution. Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving is a productive and illustrative tool to identify the most important factors causing the trouble. ConceptDraw PRO extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful tool for problem solving with Fishbone Ishikawa diagram graphic method.

Improving Problem Solving and Focus with Fishbone Diagrams

When you need to focus on the problem, professional diagramming tool helps you create a Fishbone diagram also known as Ishikawa diagram. Understanding of the problem via Fishbone diagram will improve the processes between departments and teams. ConceptDraw PRO extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution gives a powerful tool for improving problem solving and focus with Fishbone diagrams. Read more

Fishbone Diagram Problem Solving

The Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram, Fishbone diagram — all they are the names of one and the same visual method for working with causal connections. Originally invented by Kaoru Ishikawa to control the process quality, the Ishikawa diagram is well proven in other fields of management and personal scheduling, events planning, time management. It is a chart in the form of a fish, whose head is a problem, the fins are variants for its causes. To design easily the Fishbone diagram, you can use a special ConceptDraw PRO vector graphic and diagramming software which contains the powerful tools for Fishbone diagram problem solving offered by Fishbone Diagrams solution for the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Fishbone Diagram Template

A causal model is an abstract concept, that describes the causal mechanisms of a system, by noting certain variables and their influence on each other, in an effort to discover the cause of a certain problem or flaw. This model is presented in diagram form by using a fishbone diagram. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution helps you create business productivity diagrams from Fishbone diagram templates and examples, that provide to start using of the graphic method for the analysis of problem causes. Each predesigned Fishbone Diagram template is ready to use and useful for instantly drawing your own Fishbone Diagram. Read more

Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram

Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram is one of the popular productivity and management tools widely used in business organizations. It is also known as Fishbone Diagram, because it looks like a fish skeleton. Cause and Effect Diagram provides a structured way which helps to identify all possible causes of a problem. Cause and Effect Diagram can be applied anywhere where exists a causal relationship. Now the problem of complexity the Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram creating is solved thanks to the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area.
