Fishbone Fishbone Mapping A Fishbone Map is used to show the causal interaction of a complex event (an election, a nuclear explosion) or complex phenomenon (juvenile delinquency, learning disabilities). Key frame questions: What are the factors that cause X ? How do they interrelate? Are the factors that cause X the same as those that cause X to persist?

Fishbone Example

Fishbone Fishbone Diagram A Problem-Analysis Tool What is a Fishbone diagram? Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa invented it. Can be called Ishikawa diagram, Fishbone or Cause and effect diagram Used to assist in categorizing the many potential causes of problems or issues in an orderly way Used in identifying root causes.

Fishbone When should a fishbone diagram be used? Does the team... Need to study a problem/issue to determine the root cause? Want to study all the possible reasons why a process is beginning to have difficulties, problems, or breakdowns? Need to identify areas for data collection? Want to study why a process is not performing properly or producing the desired results?

Fishbone How is a fishbone diagram constructed? Basic Steps: Draw the fishbone diagram.... List the problem/issue to be studied in the "head of the fish". Label each ""bone" of the "fish". The major categories typically utilized are: –The 4 M’s: Methods, Machines, Materials, Manpower –The 4 P’s: Place, Procedure, People, Policies –The 4 S’s: Surroundings, Suppliers, Systems, Skills Note: You may use one of the four categories suggested, combine them in any fashion or make up your own. The categories are to help you organize your ideas.

Fishbone 1.Use an idea-generating technique (e.g., brainstorming) to identify the factors within each category that may be affecting the problem/issue and/or effect being studied. The team should ask... "What are the machine issues affecting/causing..." 2.Repeat this procedure with each factor under the category to produce sub-factors. Continue asking, "Why is this happening?" and put additional segments each factor and subsequently under each sub-factor. 3.Continue until you no longer get useful information as you ask, "Why is that happening?"

Fishbone 4. Analyze the results of the fishbone after team members agree that an adequate amount of detail has been provided under each major category. Do this by looking for those items that appear in more than one category. These become the 'most likely causes". 5. For those items identified as the "most likely causes", the team should reach consensus on listing those items in priority order with the first item being the most probable" cause.

In Class In groups use a fishbone analysis to analyze: –What caused the students in this class to transfer from another school to PSU?
