Use a Fishbone Diagram to Attack Complex Problems

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. This methodics is also called as cause and effect, emphasizing the basic idea that each problem has a lot of interrelated causes and also effects.

Fishbone problem solving lets visually represent the problem, all categories of causes - actual and potential, explore and analyze them, and to make the right decision.

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.

Example 1. Use a Fishbone Diagram to Attack Complex Problems

Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and its Fishbone Diagrams library will help you construct and use a Fishbone diagram to attack complex problems. First, draw the long horizontal arrow, you can use the predesigned object from the library. Then define the causes using brainstorming session (it is convenient to use ConceptDraw MindMap application for brainstorming) or any other way, combine them into categories and represent on the diagram as "fish bones". Then analyze and sort defined causes, visualize relationships between causes and effects, and now easy find solution of considered complex problem.
