What are the advantages of getting an exhaustive list of causes before looking for solutions to a problem?

 

Using a fishbone diagram (Ishikawa) is an effective way to list causes of problems. Fishbone diagrams can be use to illustrate potential factors that can create variances in solution development. Causes can be grouped by relationship to identify possible solution development behaviors. The diagram provides a basis for classifying causes and their relevance to the problem. The fishbone diagram can be a critical step in creating a list of exhaustive causes. Listing exhaustive causes of a problem can facilitate problem analysis and identify potential barriers and corrective actions. A brainstorming session is often used to identify the root cause of the problem and to eliminate causes that do not make sense. A detail list of causes helps troubleshoot solutions that will not contribute to solving the problem.  Creating a fishbone diagram or a list of causes allows the problem solver to better understand the scope of the problem and develop viable solutions.
