At the October meeting, the discussion topic was Ishikawa (Fishbone) Diagrams, a type of cause and effect diagram. Common areas of focus include:

  • Human Factors or People
  • Methods or Processes
  • Environment
  • Measurement
  • Materials
  • Machines/Tools and Maintenance

Discussion included how leadership, policy, and biases play a role as causes. Have you ever used an Ishikawa Diagram to prevent a problem rather than react to a problem?
