long arrowlong arrow - - 1. A term used when scrutinizing a logic diagram to indicate that there appears to be a gap in the logic (i.e., one or more intermediate steps is missing) that makes it unclear how a cause and an effect are related.
Usage 1: A wet tree will typically contain many long arrows, whereas a dry tree has few.
- A technique used in building or presenting a CRT in which the details of some cause-and-effect relationships are not shown in the tree.
Usage 2: This type of long arrow should only be used where all participants fully understand the underlying logic.
Illustration: When seeing the following two entities, the scrutinizer might say "I don't see how implementing drum-buffer-rope successfully causes the organization to drop the use of TOC. That is a 'long arrow' for me." The scrutinizer is saying that there must be additional entities between 10 and 30 before he/she can understand the cause-and-effect logic.
