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.
