    What Is an Interrelationship Diagram?

    Interrelationship diagrams display the cause and effects of relationships between items, and can be used to identify the root cause of a problem. By analyzing the connections or links in an interrelationship diagram and how different issues contribute to a problem, you can develop solutions for complex issues.

    How to Create an Interrelationship Diagram?

    • Define and analyze the problem or issue, which will be placed at the top of your workspace.You can work with over 1000s of shapes from Creatley’s shape library, or select an editable interrelationship diagram template to get started right away.
    • Start brainstorming to come up with issues that are causing the problems, and add shapes on your workspace for each one. You can use color palettes and different text formats on each element of the diagram for easier identification.
    • Select any issue and start comparing it with the other issues you have identified. Look for any connections that may link these issues together. Repeat this process for all the issues you have identified.
    • Once you have identified these connections, you can then use connectors to create influencer arrows to display links between issues. Create arrows based on the strength of an issue, such as darker arrows for stronger connections. You can work with different styles of connectors on Creately to visualize your issues.
    • The item with the most outgoing arrows is often the main problem that needs to be addressed. The arrows are the cause of these issues. Finally, the item with the most incoming arrows is the result or final effect.
    • Invite your team to collaborate through an email or invite link to get their ideas and input, and interact with in-app conferencing features to find a solution. Export your interrelationship diagram to share, publish or print in PNG, SVG, JPEG, and PDF formats.
