This is a cause-effect net about problems of the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) method. On the bottom are the root causes, and on the top are the effects. This orientation has its bases on the Theory of Constraints (TOC), introduced by Professor Goldratt in his book titled The Goal (1984), and can be very useful because it can be visualized what the root causes are and what the effects are.

How the diagram was created

To build the diagram, first at all, data were imported from a XML sheet. Then, the layout algorithm classical hierarchical with bottom to top orientation and orthogonal edge routing was used.
