How to Create a Fishbone (Ishikawa) Diagram Quickly

A Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram is also called cause-and-effect diagram. Fishbone diagram is often used in business to determine the cause of some problem. The diagram illustrates the main causes and sub-causes leading to an event. The main goal of the Fishbone diagram is to illustrate in a graphical way the relationship between a given outcome and all the factors that influence this outcome. The complete diagram resembles a fish skeleton as its name implies. The ability to create a Fishbone Diagram is supported by the Fishbone Diagram solution. Use ConceptDraw MINDMAP for structuring data and then ConceptDraw PRO for generating a Fishbone Diagram from mind map structure. Read more
"Causes in the diagram are often categorized, such as to the 6 M's ...
The 6 Ms (used in manufacturing industry):
(1) Machine (technology);
(2) Method (process);
(3) Material (Includes Raw Material, Consumables and Information.);
(4) Man Power (physical work)/Mind Power (brain work): Kaizens, Suggestions;
(5) Measurement (Inspection);
(6) Milieu/Mother Nature (Environment).
The original 6Ms used by the Toyota Production System have been expanded by some to include the following and are referred to as the 8Ms. However, this is not globally recognized. It has been suggested to return to the roots of the tools and to keep the teaching simple while recognizing the original intent; most programs do not address the 8Ms.
(7) Management/Money Power;
(8) Maintenance." [Ishikawa diagram. Wikipedia]
This 8Ms Ishikawa diagram (manufacturing cause and effect diagram) template is included in the Fishbone Diagram solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

How To Create a MS Visio Cause and Effect Diagram Using ConceptDraw PRO

Cause-and-Effect Ishikawa Diagram is a graphical method of analysis and cause-effect relationships, a tool in the form of fish bone. It is used to systematically determine the cause of the problem and represent it graphically. The technique is primarily used in the framework of quality management for the analysis of quality problems and their causes. Nowadays, it has found worldwide distribution and is used in multiple problem areas. It is one of the tools of lean manufacturing, which is used in group work to find the problems and their causes. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to easily create Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram and then make a MS Visio VSDX, or VSD files from your diagrams in a couple clicks, using the export capabilities of ConcewptDraw PRO.

"Ishikawa diagrams (also called fishbone diagrams, herringbone diagrams, cause-and-effect diagrams, or Fishikawa) are causal diagrams created by Kaoru Ishikawa (1968) that show the causes of a specific event. Common uses of the Ishikawa diagram are product design and quality defect prevention to identify potential factors causing an overall effect. Each cause or reason for imperfection is a source of variation. Causes are usually grouped into major categories to identify these sources of variation. The categories typically include
- People: Anyone involved with the process
- Methods: How the process is performed and the specific requirements for doing it, such as policies, procedures, rules, regulations and laws
- Machines: Any equipment, computers, tools, etc. required to accomplish the job
- Materials: Raw materials, parts, pens, paper, etc. used to produce the final product
- Measurements: Data generated from the process that are used to evaluate its quality
- Environment: The conditions, such as location, time, temperature, and culture in which the process operates" [Ishikawa diagram. Wikipedia]
The example "Ishikawa fishbone diagram" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO software extended with the Seven Basic Tools of Quality solution from the Quality area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
