Tools for Root Cause Analysis The Ishikawa diagram, also known as the fishbone diagram and root cause analysis, is a simple causal map developed by dr. Kaoru Ishikawa, who first used the technique in the 1960s (Enarsson 1998; Kelley 2000). ’’ The possible causes of the problem are drawn as bones off the main backbone (see Fig. 1). The categories often used as a starting point include materials, machines (equipment), manpower (people), methods, Mother Nature (environment), and measurement (the 6 Ms).

Consulting firms often apply a causal mapping tool called an issue tree analysis. The approach helps break down an issue (a problem) into its major components (causes) in order to create the project workplan. Causal mapping is also a key tool for risk assessment (Hodgkinson et al. 1996) and is known by several names such as fault tree analysis (Jetter et al. 2001), event tree analysis (Jetter et al. 2001) and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) (Franceschini and Galetto 2001). These maps are used to provide a systematic method for identifying all types of potential failures, their potential causes, and their consequences.
