Fishbone Diagram Problem Solving
The Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram, Fishbone diagram — all they are the names of one and the same visual method for working with causal connections. Originally invented by Kaoru Ishikawa to control the process quality, the Ishikawa diagram is well proven in other fields of management and personal scheduling, events planning, time management.
The Fishbone diagram is one of the main tools used to measure, assess, monitor and improve the quality of production processes and is included to the list of Seven tools of quality control. The Ishikawa diagram allows you to organize the reasons in a convenient visual format, to find among them the main, to identify the major causation factors and consequences in the interesting problem or situation, and also to prevent the occurrence of undesirable factors and causes.
The Ishikawa diagram is a chart in the form of a fish, whose head is a problem, the fins are variants for its causes. At this it is important to indicate the really essential reasons, without going into too much detailing.
To design easily the Fishbone diagram, you can use a special ConceptDraw DIAGRAM ector graphic and diagramming software which contains the powerful tools for Fishbone diagram problem solving offered by Fishbone Diagrams solution for the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

When thinking about data visualization, one of the first tools that comes to mind is a flowchart design. You can find flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons easily on the Internet, but it might take time to systematize this information. Nevertheless, once you start flowcharting, you’ll love its simplicity and efficiency.
This diagram consists from standard flowchart symbols, approved by ANSI (American National Standard Institute) for drawing flowcharts. A flowchart is a diagram that represents a step-by-step algorithm of any process, displaying the process stages as boxes that are connected with arrows. Flowchart design makes it clear and readable.
Flowchart designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software allows to make attractive and clear process presentation, it makes interpretation of the business process flow fresh and versatile. Great flowchart design view is a big advantage over the diagram created manually on a paper.

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools.
This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.

Installing a wireless network is not very different from a regular network. After you configure the interfaces, the half of network configuration is done. You should also set routing, masquerading and set all the addresses.
This Interactive Voice Response Diagram (IVR) diagram depicts topology of an IVR system and shows physical and logical structure of an IVR system. It is created using facilities of the ConceptDraw solutions: Computer and Networks Diagrams in conjunction with Interactive Voice Response Diagrams. The diagram helps to understand how the call-center's equipment interacts with customer's calls to route them in the proper manner enabling client to get a useful response.

Any project is a complex system which rarely goes without some problems, even the most minor. But the success of the project mostly depends from the ability effectively solve appearing problems. There are many methods for problem solving, one of the most effective is the use a Fishbone diagram to attack complex problems.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming software with Fishbone Diagrams Solution to attack any complex problems with fishbone diagrams graphic method. Construct Fishbone diagram to help users brainstorm and break down a complex problem.

In almost every sphere of life and work the people time to time are faced with the fact that on their way there are certain obstacles and problems. But it is not always possible to identify the true cause of particular problem. To understand the basic causes of problems and eliminate them, it is convenient to use the chart of Kaoru Ishikawa - the technique specially designed for this.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area can help you with construction the Fishbone Diagram also known as Ishikawa Diagram.
Ishikawa Diagram shows factors of Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management, all affecting the overall problem in one drawing for the further analysis. It is a well effective way to analyze the business problems you must identify and solve.

All computer networks differ by various params, and their size is one of them. As global area networks are the biggest, personal area (PAN) networks are the smallest. Personal computers, smartphones and other devices that have possibility to connect to Internet form a personal network.
This diagram was created using ConceptDraw Computer Network Diagrams to represent a typical components of Personal area network. A personal area network (PAN) is the connection of IT devices around an individual person. This sample of personal area network involves a notebook, a personal digital assistant (PDA), and a portable printer. Commonly a PAN contains such wireless devices as mouse, keyboard, smartphone and tablet. A wireless connection is typical for a PAN.
