    I’ve previously heard of an analytical tool named something like a Kawasaki diagram/graph.  Can anyone provide me with the correct name and spelling?  Thanks…

    Go do some basic learning! It is an Isakawa diagram, aka Fishbone or Cause and Effect diagram.
    There is a simple book put out by Goal/QPC in Boston called The Memory Jogger. Go get a copy and read it. Do a web search for further understanding of that which is not detailed enough for you to understand. You will learn alot.

    Thanks, Stan.  Right after I posted my question, I found the answer in the “Dictionary” on this site!  While I’ve used Fishbone diagrams, I had forgotton that they are also called Ishakawa diagrams.  I agree that The Memory Jogger is a good resource.  Thanks, again.

    Rick:
    Perhaps you are referring to the Ishikawa diagram, named after its creator, Kaoru Ishikawa. Also known as the cause and effect, or fishbone diagram, the tool is used to identify problem root causes and to reduce process variation.
    Applying the diagram is thoroughly explained by Dr. Ishikawa in his book, Guide to Quality Control (Industrial Engineer & Technology).  This book is one of the most important books on quality improvement ever written, in my view.  A practical application of the fishbone diagram is described in Don Wheeler’s book, SPC at the Esquire Club (I am not making this up).
