Root Cause Analysis
Management and Planning tools
ConceptDraw OFFICE suite is a software for decision making. The Seven Management and Planning Tools is a tool for Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram drawing. This diagram is for Root Cause Analysis. Analyze the root causes for factors that influenced the problem. This diagram is constructed separately for each highly prioritized factor. The goal of this is to find the root causes for the factor and list possible corrective action.

With a root cause identified, you can work on causation, and solutions to implement that will address this problem. Problems and solutions are displayed side by side to help when analyzing.

There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart.
This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.

Activity Network and Project Evaluation and Review Technique, or PERT, charts are a way of documenting and analyzing the tasks in a project.
This diagram is constructed as part of the process in creating a schedule of corrective actions. The Activity Network Chart (PERT) shows the logical connections and consequence of tasks to be performed. It displays the time period for problem solving and the implementation of all activities through the critical path.

The growth–share matrix (BCG Matrix) was created by Bruce D. Henderson for the Boston Consulting Group in 1970 to help corporations to analyze their business units and to help the company allocate resources. How is it easy design the BCG Matrices in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with unique Matrices Solution from the Marketing Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Fishbone diagrams work for most entrepreneurs and almost any industry or person having a problem. Professional diagramming software may help you create Fishbone (Cause and Effect or Ishikawa) diagrams. When people are unclear about what is causing an issue, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM will be your lifesaver.
When to use a Fishbone diagram? Originally developed as a quality control tool, you may find a Fishbone diagram helpful when used in many cases, such as to analyze a complex problem when there are many causes, for identifying all possible root causes for an effect or a problem, when you need different point of view to look on a problem, to uncover bottlenecks and identify where and why a process doesn't work, for acceleration a process when traditional ways of problem solving consume many time.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a flowchart creating software. This software includes over 20 vector stencils in libraries. These objects allow you to create well-designed flowcharts.
Put an initial object from library to a page and use RapidDraw technology clicking on direction arrows to add new objects to the flowchart. This way you can make flowchart quickly.

This sample shows the Influence Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Basic Diagramming Solution from the Universal Diagramming area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Influence diagram represents the directed acyclic graph with three types of nodes and three types of arcs that connect the nodes. Decision node is drawn as a rectangle, Uncertainty node is drawn as an oval, Value node is drawn as an octagon.
