Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram
Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram is one of the popular productivity and management tools widely used in business organizations. It is also known as Fishbone Diagram, because it looks like a fish skeleton. Cause and Effect Diagram provides a structured way which helps to identify all possible causes of a problem. Cause and Effect Diagram can be applied anywhere where exists a causal relationship.
Now the problem of complexity the Cause and Effect Fishbone Diagram creating is solved thanks to the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area.

Cause and Effect diagram (Ishikawa diagram or Fishbone diagram) software helps you to show in one diagram the factors of Equipment, People, Process, Environment, Management and Materials, which all in general affect the overall problem and gives the base for the further analysis. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is perfect software for designers and software developers who need to create Fishbone diagrams. You will get a simple problem-analysis tool - Fishbone software tools for design element to easy construct specific diagrams and identify many possible causes for an effect to attack complex problem solving.

Common uses of the Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagrams are product design and quality defect prevention. They are effectively used to identify potential factors causing an overall effect for making possibility to solve a problem.
To create Fishbone Diagrams, Cause-and-Effect Diagrams, Ishikawa Diagrams, we recommend to use a ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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.

A causal model is an abstract concept, that describes the causal mechanisms of a system, by noting certain variables and their influence on each other, in an effort to discover the cause of a certain problem or flaw. This model is presented in diagram form by using a fishbone diagram.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution helps you create business productivity diagrams from Fishbone diagram templates and examples, that provide to start using of the graphic method for the analysis of problem causes. Each predesigned Fishbone Diagram template is ready to use and useful for instantly drawing your own Fishbone Diagram.

The Project Management Triangle Diagram depicts three main constraints of any project: scope, time and cost. Projects have to comply with the specified scope, projects should be finished in time and projects need to consume the budget. Each of the constraints represents one side of the triangle, and any change in budget or timing or scope affects the entire diagram.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.
