  main = "Six Sigma Cause-and-effect Diagram", sub, ss.col = c("#666666",
  "#BBBBBB", "#CCCCCC", "#DDDDDD", "#EEEEEE"))

Arguments

effect

A short character string that represents the effect we want to analyse.

causes.gr

A vector of characters that represents the causes groups.

causes

A vector with lists that represents the individual causes for each

main

Main title for the diagram

sub

Subtitle for the diagram (recommended the Six Sigma project name)

ss.col

A vector of colors for a personalized drawing. At least five colors, sorted by descendant intensity

Details

The default value for ss.col is c("#666666", "#BBBBBB", "#CCCCCC", "#DDDDDD", "#EEEEEE"), a grayscale style. You can pass any accepted colour string.

Value
