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.
Example 1. Cause and Effect Analysis
Fishbone Diagrams Solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM ector graphics and diagramming software with the ability to visualize cause and effect analysis thanks to the Fishbone Diagrams library with numerous ready-to-use vector objects.
Example 2. Fishbone Diagrams Library Design Elements
Fishbone Diagrams Solution provides also collection of different Fishbone Diagram samples and quick-start templates. All they are available for viewing and editing from ConceptDraw STORE.
Example 3. Fishbone Diagram - Inability to Meet Project Deadlines
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of the Fishbone Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating each of these samples.
Use the Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park for easy and effective cause and effect analysis.
All source documents are vector graphic documents.

Cause and Effect Diagram SoftwareThe Cause and Effect diagram introduced by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1968 is a method for analyzing process dispersion. It can help you to dive into a problem and find an effective solution, identify and represent the possible causes for an effect, analyze the complex business problems and successfully solve them.
You can design your Cause and Effect diagram on a paper, but more effective way is to use specific software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 is a powerful Cause and Effect Diagram Software. It helps you create Cause and Effect diagram known also as Fishbone diagram or Ishikawa diagram from templates and examples.

Cause and Effect AnalysisCause and Effect Analysis - The Seven Management and Planning Tools is a tool for Cause and Effect Analysis that allows users to analyze the root causes for factors that influenced the problem. This diagram is constructed separately for each highly prioritized factor. The Diagram is then used for further formulation of potential actions.

Cause and Effect DiagramConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is perfect for Cause and Effect Diagram creating. It gives the ability to draw fishbone diagram that identifies many possible causes for an effect or a problem. Causes and Effects are usually grouped into major categories to identify these sources of variation. Causes and Effects in the diagram show relationships among various factor. Fishbone diagram shows factors of Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management, all affecting the overall problem.

When To Use a Fishbone DiagramFishbone 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 v12 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.
