#Cause and Effect Diagram or Fish- bone Sample

effect<-“Less Productivity”

causes.head<-c(“Measurement”, “Material”, “Methods”, “Environment”, “Manpower”, “Machines”)

#Individual Causes
causes<-vector(mode = “list”, length = length(causes.head))
causes[1]<-list(c(“Lab error”, “Contamination”))
causes[2]<-list(c(“Raw Material”, “Additive”))
causes[3]<-list(c(“Sampling”, “Analytical Procedure”))
causes[4]<-list(c(“Rust near sample point”))
causes[5]<-list(c(“Poor analyst”,”No guidance”))
causes[6]<-list(c(“Leakage”, “breakdown”))

#Fishbone Diagram
ss.ceDiag(effect,causes.head,causes,sub=”ABC Pvt. Ltd”,ss.col = c(“”,”red”))
