English term or phrase: Fishbone principle
***Fishbone principle*** and Lego blocks

The consultants were hired to shorten the time needed to build cruise ships and to raise productivity. To achieve these aims, a professional process management system and a lean order-processing system were introduced which follow examples set by the automobile industry. Individual sections and blocks now “flow” into the construction dock based on a ***fishbone principle*** and are assembled on a modular basis like Lego blocks. This makes the processes highly parallel and saves a considerable amount of time. The shipyard has now also integrated its many suppliers into the same tact in order for the construction components to arrive precisely when they are needed.

fishbone principle

フィッシュボーン図を用いた分析のことではなく、前後の流れからみて「フィッシュボーン図作成の要領で...」ということではないでしょうか。背骨に当たる大まかな部分(土台)を作って、そこに、細かい部分を足していくイメージを表しているように見えます。下のリンクでいえば2. の3つの図が下に行くほど細かくなっていますが、それと同様の工程を指していると思います。
