Solution and Effect Diagram

There exists also an inverted Ishikawa Diagram, with the Solution on the left and a big arrow with branches pointing to the right. The branches show the consequences and effects of the solution. You can use it to show, discuss, analyze what the consequences of a particular solution will be.

This is a Form of Sensitivity Analysis

This technique is commonly known as a sensitivity analysis.
Once you find out the conclusion of the fish bone diagram, this becomes the arrow and you try to focus on the effects this solution would have.
For example, if the price is the solution, then the consequences on various related fields like profitability, purchase, cost price etc. would be the pointers of the arrows and one could now do a sensitivity analysis by considering increases in price, decreases of price or keeping it stable.
