Improving Problem Solving and Focus with Fishbone Diagrams
When you need to focus on the problem, professional diagramming tool helps you create a Fishbone diagram also known as Ishikawa diagram. Understanding of the problem via Fishbone diagram will improve the processes between departments and teams.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution gives a powerful tool for improving problem solving and focus with Fishbone diagrams. Fishbone diagram depicts in one diagram all factors of Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management, affecting on a given problem for the further analysis. Construct Fishbone diagram, identify many possible causes for an effect and focus on them for improving problem solving.
Example 1. Improving Problem Solving and Focus with Fishbone Diagrams
The easiest way of drawing Fishbone diagram in ConceptDraw is to create it from templates offered in quantity by Fishbone Diagrams Solution at ConceptDraw STORE. Here you can find the set of templates for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and also for ConceptDraw MindMap, and to start with any desired of them. Brainstorming the causes at ConceptDraw MindMap, you have then a possibility to output automatically your data as Fishbone diagram in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
Example 2. Fishbone Diagram Templates in ConceptDraw STORE
Now, you can change the style of your diagram - change the colors of objects and text, add images and clipart from your computer or other libraries of ConceptDraw Solution Park to illustrate exceptionally your Fishbone Diagram.
Example 3. Fishbone Diagram - Bad Coffee
The samples and templates you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of 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 for easy and effective improving problem solving and focus with Fishbone diagrams.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

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.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is perfect for Cause and Effect Diagram creating. It gives the ability to draw fishbone diagram that identifies many possible causes for an effect or a problem. Causes and Effects are usually grouped into major categories to identify these sources of variation. Causes and Effects in the diagram show relationships among various factor. Fishbone diagram shows factors of Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management, all affecting the overall problem.

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them.
The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.
