Create Fishbone Diagrams
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.
Example 1. Create Fishbone Diagrams in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM /p>
Fishbone Diagrams Solution provides the Fishbone Diagrams library with 13 ready-to-use vector objects that can be used to create Fishbone Diagrams in a few minutes.
Example 2. Fishbone Diagrams Library Design Elements
Another way of drawing the Fishbone Diagram (Ishikawa Diagram) in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is to use as the base one of predesigned templates or samples offered in quantity at ConceptDraw STORE. Choose any desired that meets your requirements and simply change it according to your needs.
Example 3. Fishbone Diagram - Increase in Productivity
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the predesigned objects offered by Fishbone Diagrams library from the Fishbone Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating each of these samples.
Use the Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park to create Fishbone Diagrams of any complexity fast and easy, and realize effectively cause and effect analysis.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Fishbone Diagrams Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.
FIVE RELATED HOW TO's:
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.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park gives the ability to draw Fishbone diagram, which identifies many possible causes for an effect for problem solving. Fishbone Diagram procedure of creation includes the set of steps easy for execution in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

How do Fishbone diagrams solve manufacturing problems? Fishbone diagrams are successfully used in various fields of industries and manufacturing to analyze the set of possible causes and their effects. Fishbone diagram provides a process to clearly define the “Effect” and then puts you to thinking about the possible causes, based on the categories of common problems in manufacturing.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution lets you construct Fishbone diagrams and represent globally recognized standards for manufacturing 6 Ms and 8 Ms.

The Value Stream Map is one of the key tools of lean practitioners. It helps aptly describe the manufacturing processes both complex and simple. It supports process improvement, allows identifying waste, and reducing process cycle times. Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Value Stream Mapping solution to document processes starting with a professionally designed Value Stream Mapping template.
