Flow efficiency trend - waste over time

Flow efficiency trend - waste over time widget helps you understand your workflow efficiency trend, based on waste time for features or epics in a specific scope.

Note: The widget considers only items in the Done metaphase with cycle time greater than 0. Items in the Done metaphase with 0 cycle time are not included in the widget.

The widget provides a standard dashboard graph and the AI insights on the right pane. The AI insights display the top 5 work items with the highest waste time. You can drill down to identify up to 100 work items with the highest waste time in a scope. For details on the widget insights, see Flow efficiency trend - waste over time.

The widget right-hand indicators show the descending or growing waste trend for the first and last releases/milestones, as set in the widget scope. The indicators help you determine whether the efficiency of your development process is improving.

The widget displays the following data:

Display Details
X-axis

Depending on the work item type, the x-axis by default displays a release or a milestone.

Y-axis

The percentage of the aggregated waste time, out of the total cycle time for items in a scope that have reached their end phase.

Note: The y-axis fields are read only and cannot be configured.

Tip: On the Scope tab, define additional filters, for example, to filter work items by a waste category. In this case, the widget will display only those items in the Done metaphase that are associated with the selected waste category.

Hover over a certain point in the waste trend line to view the following details:

  • The waste percentage and the number of waste days out of all the working days in a scope
  • The number of items that reached the Done metaphase

  • Average number of story points per item

Waste time grouped by category over time

Waste time grouped by category over time is a summary widget that helps you track waste time for features and epics in a specific scope. This widget groups the work items' waste by waste categories across releases, milestones, or teams.

This widget provides visibility of major waste causes in your development process. It helps you understand whether you've managed to reduce or eliminate any of the waste causes, and increase your process efficiency. For details on tracking waste, see Measure waste.

Note: For the widget Group by function, ensure that waste categories are created for your workspace. For details, see Waste management - admin tasks.

The widget displays the following data:

The amount of waste per category is an aggregation of waste for work items that were done in the selected scope and had waste associated with this category in their lifecycle.

A work item can be listed under multiple categories if it has waste associated with those categories.

Note: The y-axis fields are read-only and cannot be configured.

Hover over a graph section to view the total number of waste days in the given scope, as well as the amount of waste per waste category, in days and in percentage out of the total waste time.

Click a graph section for a waste category to drill down to the work items associated with that category.
