Fishbone Diagram Procedure

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 following steps:

  • Draw an ellipse at the center right of the diagram page and draw a horizontal arrow running to it. Write problem effect into ellipse.
  • Brainstorm problem major categories causes. You can use generic headings: Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management.
  • Draw the categories of causes as branches from the main arrow.
  • Brainstorm all the possible causes of the problem. Causes can be draw in several places if they relate to several categories.
  • Draw sub–causes branching off the causes and generate deeper levels of causes.
  • Focus attention to chart where the ideas are few.
