Fishbone Diagram

From Elsmar Cove Quality Assurance and Business Standards Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Also known as a cause and effect diagram or an Ishikawa diagram, this is a tool for study of processes. It shows possible causes of an effect on the "bones" branching out from a line representing the process which produces the effect. Its primary limitation is that it has no means for adequately showing the possible inter-relationships of the various causes.
