Fishbone Software Tools for Design Element
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.
Example 1. Fishbone Software Tools for Design Element
Design of Fisbone Diagram begins from the defining an effect or problem and representing it as a fish head. Then you need define the groups of factors that led to the occurrence of a given problem and to draw them as bones on horizontal line - a fish spine. These causes are often defined during brainstorming sessions (we recommend to use the ConceptDraw MindMap for brainstorming). In turn, for each group of factors if needed can be also indicated 2-3 causes leading to the problem. Thus are constructed usually 3-4 levels.
Follow all these steps fast and easy thanks to the predesigned elements of Fishbone Diagrams library from Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software.
Example 2. Fishbone Diagram - Causes of Low Quality Output
The Fishbone Diagram samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the powerful tools of Fishbone Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating each of these samples.
Use the Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park for quick, easy and effective cause and effect analysis and problem solving.
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.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Using ConceptDraw you will be able to create bubble diagrams from the ready ConceptDraw library objects or make your own objects. The created diagram can be saved and edited, objects can be moved and links between them will be automatically repainted after object moving because of using the ConceptDraw connectors.

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.

Fishbone, Ishikawa or Cause and Effect diagram helps understand the reasons of completed or potential actions by structuring their causes in smaller categories. Also, one can use it to see how the contributing factors are related to each other. In everyday company routine, a Cause and Effect diagram is helpful with a number of regular activities like brainstorming, project management, and problem solving.
How to Construct a Fishbone Diagram? Construction a Fishbone diagram in professional diagramming software ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is more easy than you think. Just use the predesigned vector elements from the Fishbone Diagrams library for Fishbone Diagrams solution or one of plenty Fishbone templates and examples, and you will get a Cause and Effect diagram in minutes.
