Cause and Effect Diagrams are designed to identify the potential factors that cause an overall effect. The causes are grouped into the categories, each cause is a source of variation.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM powerful diagramming and vector drawing software provides the Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park that allows to design the Cause and Effect Diagrams quick, easy and effective.

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work.
This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.
