Fishbone diagram - Causes of low-quality output

"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 fishbone diagram example "Causes of low-quality output" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
