# Problem solving

Problem Solving - ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for the problem solving. The Seven Management and Planning Tools solution is a set of such tools for investigating complex problems.
These tools are exemplary at organizing research, parsing complex problems, providing a structure for the details, helping managers make decisions, and organizing effective communications in a visual manner that keeps everyone involved.

## PROBLEM ANALYSIS. Prioritization Matrix

ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for Prioritization Matrix diagram making. This diagram ranks the drivers’ factors to determine priority. It identifies the factors of the first priority for analysis of possible corrective actions. It assesses the weight of each factor for each criterion and specifies it in the Prioritization Matrix. The total sum of weights for a factor’s criteria indicates its priority.

## Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving

Problems are obstacles and challenges that one should overcome to reach the goal. They are an inseparable part of any business, and the success of an enterprise often depends on ability to solve all problems effectively. The process of problem solving often uses rational approach, helping to find a suitable solution.
Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving is a productive and illustrative tool to identify the most important factors causing the trouble. ConceptDraw PRO extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful tool for problem solving with Fishbone Ishikawa diagram graphic method.

## Cause and Effect Analysis - Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving

Fishbone diagram is a powerful tool used for solving business problems and obstacles. ConceptDraw PRO software extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a helpful tool for cause and effect analysis. It gives the ability to easy identify many possible causes and factors which cause the effects and to draw Fishbone Diagrams for problem solving.

## How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems

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 PRO application extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution lets you construct Fishbone diagrams and represent globally recognized standards for manufacturing 6 Ms and 8 Ms.

## Cause and Effect Analysis

Cause and Effect Analysis - The Seven Management and Planning Tools is a tool for Cause and Effect Analysis that allows users to analyze the root causes for factors that influenced the problem. This diagram is constructed separately for each highly prioritized factor. The Diagram is then used for further formulation of potential actions.

## CORRECTIVE ACTIONS PLANNING. PERT Chart

The PERT Chart is constructed as part of the process in creating a schedule of corrective actions. The PERT Chart 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.
ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for corrective actions planning.
