ALM Octane helps you improve the efficiency of your delivery process by tracking and measuring waste time for backlog and quality items. You can then create custom widgets to reflect the ratio of waste out of the total cycle time. Track the trend of this ratio across releases, milestones, and dates in order to understand whether efficiency is improving over time.
For details on tracking waste and identifying bottlenecks, see Track waste.
Create custom widgets using waste time and cycle time metrics. See the examples below. For details on creating custom widgets, see Configure widget settings.
Example 1: Display the ratio of waste time to cycle time.
Example 2: Display the number of days that features under development were in waste time, per milestone or release.
