Cause and Effect Analysis
When you have some problems you need first to explore the reasons which caused them. Cause and Effect Analysis is a perfect way to do this. It is a diagram-based methodology developed by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1960s as a quality control tool. This methodic connects Brainstorming with a Mind Mapping, it lets to identify all possible causes of a problem, define bottlenecks and represent all this on the Ishikawa (Fishbone) diagram which looks like the fish skeleton.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park gives the ability to draw fast and easy Fishbone diagram that identifies many possible causes for an effect. Causes can be derived from brainstorming sessions, further they are often categorized and can show relationships among various factors. Causes are usually grouped into major categories to identify the sources of variation.

SIX RELATED HOW TO's:
Fishbone diagrams work for most entrepreneurs and almost any industry or person having a problem. Professional diagramming software may help you create Fishbone (Cause and Effect or Ishikawa) diagrams. When people are unclear about what is causing an issue, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM will be your lifesaver.
When to use a Fishbone diagram? Originally developed as a quality control tool, you may find a Fishbone diagram helpful when used in many cases, such as to analyze a complex problem when there are many causes, for identifying all possible root causes for an effect or a problem, when you need different point of view to look on a problem, to uncover bottlenecks and identify where and why a process doesn't work, for acceleration a process when traditional ways of problem solving consume many time.

In almost every sphere of life and work the people time to time are faced with the fact that on their way there are certain obstacles and problems. But it is not always possible to identify the true cause of particular problem. To understand the basic causes of problems and eliminate them, it is convenient to use the chart of Kaoru Ishikawa - the technique specially designed for this.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area can help you with construction the Fishbone Diagram also known as Ishikawa Diagram.
Ishikawa Diagram shows factors of Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management, all affecting the overall problem in one drawing for the further analysis. It is a well effective way to analyze the business problems you must identify and solve.

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 DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area.
