    Fish Bone Diagram (Any (2000/2002))

    What the heck is a fish bone diagram. My plant manager asked me if I had heard of them and I hadn't a clue. I searched the net looking for some examples and it looks like I could create one by adding borders to cells. I think he wants a tool to generate this diagram for him.

    Ayeee......

    It is a cause and effect diagramming system. I learned it in a Deming Quality Improvement course and never again used it. "A diagram that, by working back from a given problem, is used to identify the main categories of possible causes of the problem and then to generate detailed lists of specific possible causes."

    Found from googling, the first three tell you most of what you need to know

    For some reason your second link doesn't work for me, here it is again:

    Page down to Basic Quality Tools.

    Note: the second link didn't work - see JohnBF's reply further down in this thread for a working link.

    See Fishbone Diagram Software for a free utility, and (link removed) for an Excel spreadsheet. You could also use an Organization Chart (Insert | Object...) to create a kind of fishbone chart.
