Cause and Effect Diagrams
Cause and Effect Diagrams (also known as Ishikawa or Fishbone diagrams) are the management tools widely used in business organizations. Cause and Effect Diagrams helps to consider all possible causes of the problem and to carry out the careful analysis of a situation. It is one of the seven basic tools of quality control and is widely used for definition the components needed for desired outcomes. This diagram was named Fishbone diagram because it is similar from the side on a fish skeleton with the fish head at the right and the bones at the left.
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.

A Daisy Chain is the simple computer network. It is the easiest way to add more Ethernet devices into the network. In the Daisy Chain network one computer is connected to the next without any intervening devices, thus the message is sent from one computer to the next and then to the next and so on. A Daisy Chain can be linear or ring

This method of problem analysis is widely used in IT, manufacture industries and chemical engineering. If you want to take a fresh look on your problem, you can draw a fishbone diagram with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, which supports both MAC OS and Windows. You can see and download fishbone diagram samples and templates in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram can be applied as template for performing the cause and effect analysis of a service industry problems. It can help to determine factors causing problems. Causes in this diagram are categorized according to the 4S’s principle that means Surroundings, Suppliers, Systems and Skills. Grouping causes allows to reveal main interactions between different events. This diagram was made using ConceptDraw Fishbone diagrams solution. It can help to reveal the causes effected a complicated issue. Of course it can be used together with other methods of approaching to the problem solving.

There are many ways to define the flow of information within a system. Structured-systems analysis method often uses data flow diagrams to show data flow, data storages and data processing visualization. These diagrams are easy to develop and quite useful.
Here is a dataflow diagram presenting an example of the manufacturing process flow. The oval process shapes represent a process that controls data within the current system. The process may produce data or make some action based on data. Data flows are represented by lines. They show the movement of information through the system. The direction of the data flow is depicted by the arrow. The external entities are shown by rectangles. They represent the external entities interacting with the system. The data store objects (unclosed rectangles) are used to show data bases participating in a process flow.
