Root cause analysis diagrams

Root cause analysis is a lean manufacturing method that helps determine the underlying cause behind a problem set. Making a diagram with this method is effortless in Lucidchart—just turn on our flowchart shape library to begin. Then drag and drop shapes onto the canvas.

Cause-and-effect diagrams

If you want to dive deeper into causes with another lean manufacturing tool, try a cause-and-effect diagram, also known as an Ishikawa diagram. This lets you outline all the possible causes for a problem. Click here for more information on cause-and-effect diagrams, along with a template.

Value stream maps

Lucidchart provides a full-featured shape library dedicated just to making value stream maps. When you drag out a shape, the editor will automatically prompt you to choose a line or another shape. Check out this guide to value stream maps and accompanying examples.

Ideal for businesses

Not only does Lucidchart offer a variety of lean manufacturing tools, it also has many other diagramming capabilities that are useful to businesses. You may be interested in converting your company directory to an org chart, charting processes with flowcharts, or using a mind map for brainstorming.
