"Interrelationship digraph is a method to identify relationships among a set of items. Items that have a cause or effect associated on another item are linked together (and given weight) for the purpose of identifying the items most affected or items affecting other items the most, giving emphasis on those items for risk mitigation planning. Items involved in risk management could be risks being mitigated, risk strategies, project activities or resources. ...
This method fosters broad thinking of individuals to identify interrelationships of risk items that affect the whole project, determining critical risk areas that must be dealt first and ensures efficient allocation of project resources." [ helm/ Risk_ Man_ WEB/ Planning%20 Worksheet%20 Notes_ files%5Cintrldgm.htm]
Relation diagram (interrelationship digraph, relationships digram) helps identify what factors are causes and which factors are effects. Factors help establish KPI (Key Performance Indicators) to monitor changes and the effectiveness of corrective actions in resolving a problem.
The relations diagram is one of the Seven Management and Planning Tools (7 MP tools, Seven New Quality Tools).
The relations diagram template for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is included in the solution "Seven Management and Planning Tools" from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

"Interrelationship Digraph (ID).
This tool displays all the interrelated cause-and-effect relationships and factors involved in a complex problem and describes desired outcomes. The process of creating an interrelationship digraph helps a group analyze the natural links between different aspects of a complex situation." [Seven Management and Planning Tools. Wikipedia]
"Causality (also referred to as causation) is the relation between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is understood as a consequence of the first.
In common usage, causality is also the relation between a set of factors (causes) and a phenomenon (the effect). Anything that affects an effect is a factor of that effect. A direct factor is a factor that affects an effect directly, that is, without any intervening factors. (Intervening factors are sometimes called "intermediate factors".) The connection between a cause(s) and an effect in this way can also be referred to as a causal nexus.
Though the causes and effects are typically related to changes or events, candidates include objects, processes, properties, variables, facts, and states of affairs; characterizing the causal relation can be the subject of much debate." [Causality. Wikipedia]

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) serves for detailed description of structures and databases. An ERD represents a diagram made up mainly of rectangular blocks (for entities, or data) linked with relationships. The links between the blocks describe relations between these entities. There are three types of relationships: one-to-one,
one-to-many, many-to-many.
Draw Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERD) easily with ConceptDraw extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution from the Software Development Area. Use ERD software to create ER diagram.

The accident analysis diagram example "Accident analytic tree" was redesigned from the picture 7-14 from the "DOE Workbook. Conducting Accident Investigations. Revision 2."
"Analytic tree analyses are well defined, useful methods that graphically depict, from beginning to end, the events and conditions preceding and immediately following an accident. An analytic tree is a means of organizing information that helps the investigator conduct a deductive analysis of any system (human, equipment, or environmental) to determine critical paths of success and failure. Results from this analysis identify the details and interrelationships that must be considered to prevent the oversights, errors, and omissions that lead to failures. In accident investigations, this type of analysis can consist of both failure paths and success paths, and can lead to neutral, negative, or positive conclusions regarding accident severity.
An analytic tree enables the user to:
(1) Systematically identify the possible paths from events to outcome.
(2) Display a graphical record of the analytical process.
(3) Identify management system weaknesses and strengths."

The FTA diagram sample "Fault tree analysis - Insulin delivery system" was redesigned from the illustration of "CMSI 641: Introduction to Software Engineering. Design of Critical Systems. B.J. Johnson. 2005. Loyola Marymount University".
"Another way of assessing hazards is using fault tree analysis. In this process, each of the identified hazards is covered by a detailed analysis to find out what might cause it. Either inductive or deductive reasoning is applied. In the case of software hazards, the usual focus is to determine faults that will cause the system to fail to deliver a system service, such as a monitoring system. A "fault tree" is constructed to link all the possible situations together, to help identify the interrelationships of the failures, which modules may cause them, and what "trickle-down effects" there might be. Here is an example of a fault tree, as applied to the Insulin delivery system from Sommerville...
Note that this tree is only partially complete, since only the potential software faults are shown on the diagram. The potential failures involving hardware, such as low battery, blood monitor or sensor failure, patient over-exertion or inattention, or medical staff failure are noticeable by their absence.
The fault tree and safety specification processes are two ways of helping with system risk assessment tasks. Once the risks are identified, there are other assessments that need to take place. First, the likelihood of the risk occurrance must be assessed. This is often quantifiable, so numbers may be assigned based on things like MTBF, latency effects, and other known entities. There may be other non-quantifiable contributors to the risk likelihood, however, such that these must be assessed and estimated by experts in the domain. (Don't short-change this process when dealing with critical systems!) Finally, the risk assessment must include the severity of the risk, meaning an estimation of the cost to the project in the event the risk item actually does occur. "Cost to the project" means all associated costs, including schedule delays, human injury, damage to hardware, corruption of data, and so on."

"A thematic map is a type of map or chart especially designed to show a particular theme connected with a specific geographic area. ...
A thematic map is a map that focuses on a specific theme or subject area, whereas in a general map the variety of phenomena - geological, geographical, political - regularly appear together. ...
Thematic maps emphasize spatial variation of one or a small number of geographic distributions. These distributions may be physical phenomena such as climate or human characteristics such as population density and health issues. ...
Thematic map are sometimes referred to as graphic essays that portray spatial variations and interrelationships of geographical distributions. Location, of course, is important to provide a reference base of where selected phenomena are occurring. ...
Thematic maps serve three primary purposes.
First, they provide specific information about particular locations.
Second, they provide general information about spatial patterns.
Third, they can be used to compare patterns on two or more maps." [Thematic map. Wikipedia]
The vector stencils library "Thematic maps" contains 7 continent map contours for creating the thematic maps of geographic regions displaying the metric values by countries, states and territories marked by different colors.

How to Add a Block Diagram to a PowerPoint Presentation

Block diagram is a rather universal type of charts - compositions from geometric blocks can be applied to describe various kinds of processes or systems, consisting of components, which depend on each other. Block diagrams are indispensable when you need to represent a processor system on a basic level. With blocks, you can easily depict the basic elements of the process, without drilling down. The PowerPoint presentation of major process steps and key process participants can be very informative and helpful. Using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM, you can easily convert a block diagram to an MS PowerPoint presentation.
