Cause and Effect Analysis - Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving
Fishbone diagram is a powerful tool used for solving business problems and obstacles. The solving process usually requires the realization of the following steps:
- define a problem;
- identify the problem's root;
- find as many solutions for a given problem;
- evaluate your solutions, identify the best and apply it;
- appreciate the effectiveness of the taken solution.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a helpful tool for cause and effect analysis. It gives the ability to easy identify many possible causes and factors which cause the effects and to draw Fishbone Diagrams for problem solving.

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network.
On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.

Any building project must respond to some requirements. Moreover, finding a drawing software for developing a waste water plan is significant. Designing plumbing plans may be difficult in the beginning, but practice makes perfect.
Layout of plumbing fixtures and, kitchen equipment a is a very important part of the home's interior design. If you do not want to find out suddenly the bath in your kitchen, or stove in your bathroom, you need to pay due attention to this plan. ConceptDraw Building Plans libraries give you a number of vector objects. Using them you can quickly and professionally sketch a plan of kitchen or bathroom in proper scale and with objects depicting your desired equipment. Then your contractor never will confuse a bath with a stove and a washing machine with a toilet and your house will be really a home of your dreams.

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.
