# Fishbone Diagram

Fishbone Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw PRO software with templates, samples and library of vector stencils for drawing the Ishikawa diagrams for cause and effect analysis.

## Fishbone Diagram

This work flow chart sample was redesigned from the picture "Weather Forecast" from the article "Simulation Workflows".

"(1) The weather is predicted for a particular geological area. Hence, the workflow is fed with a model of the geophysical environment of ground, air and water for a requested area.
(2) Over a specified period of time (e.g. 6 hours) several different variables are measured and observed. Ground stations, ships, airplanes, weather balloons, satellites and buoys measure the air pressure, air/ water temperature, wind velocity, air humidity, vertical temperature profiles, cloud velocity, rain fall, and more.
(3) This data needs to be collected from the different sources and stored for later access.
(4) The collected data is analyzed and transformed into a common format (e.g. Fahrenheit to Celsius scale). The normalized values are used to create the current state of the atmosphere.
(5) Then, a numerical weather forecast is made based on mathematical-physical models (e.g. GFS - Global Forecast System, UKMO - United Kingdom MOdel, GME - global model of Deutscher Wetterdienst). The environmental area needs to be discretized beforehand using grid cells. The physical parameters measured in Step 2 are exposed in 3D space as timely function. This leads to a system of partial differential equations reflecting the physical relations that is solved numerically.
(6) The results of the numerical models are complemented with a statistical interpretation (e.g. with MOS - Model-Output-Statistics). That means the forecast result of the numerical models is compared to statistical weather data. Known forecast failures are corrected.
(7) The numerical post-processing is done with DMO (Direct Model Output): the numerical results are interpolated for specific geological locations.
(8) Additionally, a statistical post-processing step removes failures of measuring devices (e.g. using KALMAN filters).
(9) The statistical interpretation and the numerical results are then observed and interpreted by meteorologists based on their subjective experiences.
(10) Finally, the weather forecast is visualized and presented to interested people." [iaas.uni-stuttgart.de/ forschung/ projects/ simtech/ sim-workflows.php]
The example "Workflow diagram - Weather forecast" was drawn using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Workflow Diagrams solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

## Fishbone Diagram

This spatial infographic example was created on the base of the tube map from the Transport for London website.
[tfl.gov.uk/ assets/ images/ general/ 24746-nle-gallery-tube-map.jpg]
"The Tube map is a schematic transit map of the lines and stations of London's public rapid transit railway systems, namely the London Underground (commonly known as the Tube, hence the name), Docklands Light Railway, London Overground and Emirates Air Line, as well as being incorporated into Greater London connections maps.
As a schematic diagram, it shows not necessarily the geographic but rather the relative positions of stations along the lines, stations' connective relations with each other and fare zones. The basic design concepts have been widely adopted for other network maps around the world, especially that of mapping topologically rather than geographically." [Tube map. Wikipedia]
The spatial infographics example "Metro map - Northern line extension to Battersea via Nine Elms" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Spatial Infographics solution from the area "What is Infographics" of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
