Fishbone Diagram Example
Fishbone Diagram, also referred as Cause and Effect diagram or Ishikawa diagram, is a fault finding and problem solving tool. A work with Ishikawa diagram can be divided into several stages:
- determination of all causes and factors which affect the intended result;
- systematization of these factors and causes in causal and semantic sections;
- assessment and prioritization of factors and reasons within sections;
- analysis of received structure;
- identifying and clipping the factors and causes which you can't affect;
- omission of insignificant causes and factors.
In order to determine more precisely factors and causes which affect the most greatly on the result, it is recommended to use the brainstorming method. As you can see, construction of Ishikawa diagrams is quite complicated process and has a number of features, but the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and ConceptDraw MindMap applications will help you to deal it quickly and effortlessly.

Bureaucratic companies usually are characterized by a strict hierarchy and clearly defined responsibilities. However, sometimes organizational structure of a company reminds of somewhat tangled. To clarify it, you can create an orgchart that will represent the company as a tree with its' departments as branches.
This organization diagram represents a tree-like organizational structure. This is a typical example of a top-level branches of the hierarchical organizational structure. This part of the tree shows heads of branches who are subordinated completely to the president. The information and solutions are distributed though a tree structure down to the company's departments. Each of the sub-division has its own structure that is reflected in the corresponding organizational chart. This orgchart diagram was created using the vector graphic library supplied with ConceptDraw Organizational Charts solution.

The Onion Diagram is a type of circular diagram which consists of the core circle and concentric circles that look like the cross sections of onion. The key value of the Onion Diagram is to visually demonstrate the relationships that lead to a successful final product or deliverable.
Design of Onion Diagrams and Stakeholder Onions Diagrams is a complex process, but ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software makes it easier thanks to the Stakeholder Onion Diagrams Solution from the Management Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park, and the set of included libraries and Onion Diagram templates.

This sample shows the Flowchart of the Sustainment and Disposal.
A Flowchart is a graphically representation of the process that step-by-step lead to the solution the problem. The geometric figures on the Flowchart represent the steps of the process and are connected with arrows that show the sequence of the actions. The Flowcharts are widely used in engineering, architecture, science, analytics, government, politics, business, marketing, manufacturing, administration, etc.
