# Relations Diagram

Identify what factors are causes and which factors are effects.
Factors that are causes are called "Drivers"; a consequence of factors is called "Indicators".
Indicators help establish KPI (Key Performance Indicators) to monitor changes and the effectiveness of corrective actions in resolving a problem.

## Root Cause Tree Diagram

Analyze the root causes of factors that influence the problem. A diagram is constructed separately for each high priority factor. Identify the root causes for a factor and then propose possible corrective actions. The diagram displays the structure of causes for a factor and possible corrective actions. The Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram is used for further formulation of actions.

## Decision Making

Decision Making - ConceptDraw Office suite provides visual tools that are given support on the stage of the decision making.
The Seven Management and Planning Tools is a set for such diagrams: Affinity Diagram, Relations Diagram, Prioritization Matrix, Root Cause Tree Diagram, Involvement Matrix, PERT Chart, Risk Diagram (PDPC).

## Affinity Diagram

The Affinity Diagram shows the structure of large, complex factors that have an influence on a problem, and then divides them up into a smaller and simpler structure. The Affinity Diagram does not show a causal relationship between the factors. This diagram is designed to prepare the data for further analysis of the cause-effect relationships.

## PROBLEM ANALYSIS. Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram

Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram. Use the Root Cause Diagram to perform visual root cause analysis. Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram is constructed separately for each highly prioritized factor. The goal of this is to find the root causes for the factor and list possible corrective action.
ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for problem analysis.

## PROBLEM ANALYSIS. Relations Diagram

Use the Relations Diagram to create a relations factors map and to identify which factors are “drivers” and “indicators”. This diagram identifies causal relationships and determine what factors are causes or effects.
ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for relation diagram making.

## 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.

## Relationships Analysis

Relationships Analysis. Relations Diagram - factors analysis, factors relations. Create Relations Diagram with ConceptDraw PRO.
The Seven Management and Planning Tools is a tool for Interaction diagram drawing. This diagram identifies causal relationships. Determine what factors are causes and which factors are effects. Interaction diagram helps establish KPIs to monitor changes and the effectiveness of corrective actions in resolving the problem.

## 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.

## Preventive Action

Preventive Action - ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for the Preventive Action making. The Seven Management and Planning Tools solution is a set of such tools for problems preventive actions via investigating of the core problem.
Skilled use of these diagrams makes collaborative teamwork both more engaging and more effective.

## CORRECTIVE ACTIONS PLANNING. Risk Diagram (PDPC)

Risk Diagram (PDPC) - ConceptDraw Office suite is a software for Risks Diagram making. This diagram identifies possible risks in accomplishing corrective actions. With the Risks Diagram, one analyzes each action separately in a tree of all actions and develops a preventive action in response of each potential obstacles or circumstances which may be a risk.
