When we report for example, that the rapid feedback cycles made possible with an electronic board accelerated our improvement, we are simply reporting the facts. What we achieved
IT DEMAND DevelopmentAcceptance Testing Human Resources Note: HR team does not have direct access to electronic board. We do their updates during standups. A new level of excellence In out last episode….
Orientation to the Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD) For Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) Over time, the cumulative number of cards: Time Card Count Backlog WIP Throughput In our backlog (Demand) Our team is working on (WIP) Our team has completed (Throughput)
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) Backlog 44 Backlog 33 Backlog decreased 25% (44 to 33) WIP decreased 68% (31 to 10 includes Moved To Production) But Throughput slowing in mid June-July… Why? WIP 31 WIP 10 Slope trending downward
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) Throughput slowing in mid June-July due to temporary policy change: freeze production. Production freeze Weekly Monthly Throughput accelerates after policy lifted. Have we reached the high-throughput operating point? Feb-Aug: 26,54,41,43,39,23,35
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) Monthly Before April, there is more wait time than work time, Blocked time +Work timeWait time +Cycle time = In Feb Blocked time+ Work time+ Wait timeCycle time = Blocked 0 + Worked 3 + Wait 9 Cycle Time = 12 Starting in June, wait time swings back. It is greater than work time. Wait time > work time In April and May there is more work time.
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) Some waiting and blocking may not be avoidable. How much waiting CAN we avoid? Monthly Discovery Costs What are the Discovery Costs? Is there a benefit to switching contexts? Use Flow Efficiency to chart… Can they be lowered? Should they be lowered?
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks) What percentage of Overall Cycle Time is your team actually working on cards? Monthly Flow Efficiency increased from 23% to 43+%. 23% 45%
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks): Game Film shows Pull patterns By the second day we see several cards skip Analysis.
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks): WIP Overage After June we see the WIP limit exceeded signal fade. It flares up again in October. Dev and Test exceeding WIP, often with capacity in Test The RED BAR signals WIP limit exceeded!
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks): Blocks A rash of blocks during April Year end. What happened?
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks): Backward Flow Throughout the playback we see cards flowing backward. We have flow and undertow. Is it good? Is it bad? Is there too much? Should we see more?
Enhancements (less than 3 weeks): Adjacency Matrix What is the next pain point or opportunity for improvement? 12 cards went back from Test In Progress to Development In-Progress. How do we visualize the evolution of our practice? 4 cards went forward from Input Queue to Moved to Production.
