Flow metrics provide a detailed landscape of your development process, offering insights to enhance productivity and predictability. Here’s a concise overview:
Work Item Throughput: Measures the number of work items completed in a given timeframe, indicating team productivity.
Avg Cycle Time: Tracks the average time taken from work commencement to completion, reflecting process efficiency.
Avg Flow Efficiency: Gauges the ratio of active work time against total time, highlighting areas of delay.
Avg Lead Time: Monitors the average time from work item conception to completion, essential for forecasting delivery.
Avg Work in Progress (WIP): Assesses the average number of work items in progress, useful for balancing team workload.
Current Work in Progress: Offers a real-time snapshot of ongoing work, helping manage team capacity.
Lead Time: Measures the duration from the request to delivery, indicating speed to market.
Cycle Time: Details the time spent actively working on items, excluding wait times.
Completed Work Items Distribution: Analyzes the allocation and completion rate of work items, aiding in resource allocation.
Average Work Load: Calculates the average amount of work handled, providing insight into potential overloads or underutilization.
Work Breakdown: Breaks down work into categories, allowing for targeted improvements in specific areas.
Flow Efficiency: Evaluates the proportion of productive work to total time, pinpointing inefficiencies.
Work Items Cumulative Flow: Visualizes the accumulation of work items over time, offering a view of workflow stability and backlog trends.
Leveraging these flow metrics with Plutora provides a clear path to optimizing your delivery pipeline for better results and greater predictability.
