This is a simple yet powerful method of visually recording possible causes and relating effect. These help detailed investigation of processes responsible for quality problems.They provide a convenient way of revealing relationships between causes and can help in defining the problem more closely.
The diagram is created in three stages:

1. Establish what the problem or effect is, start the diagram by putting this in the box.
2. Identify the major causes. The typical headings are Material, Method, Manpower, and, Machinery. Put these in boxes on branches of the fishbone.
