Fishbone Diagram, also referred as Cause and Effect diagram or Ishikawa diagram, is a fault finding and problem solving tool. A work with Ishikawa diagram can be divided into several stages:

  • determination of all causes and factors which affect the intended result;
  • systematization of these factors and causes in causal and semantic sections;
  • assessment and prioritization of factors and reasons within sections;
  • analysis of received structure;
  • identifying and clipping the factors and causes which you can't affect;
  • omission of insignificant causes and factors.

In order to determine more precisely factors and causes which affect the most greatly on the result, it is recommended to use the brainstorming method. As you can see, construction of Ishikawa diagrams is quite complicated process and has a number of features, but the ConceptDraw PRO and ConceptDraw MindMap applications will help you to deal it quickly and effortlessly.
