Satellite DSL Internet Digital subscriber line DSL is a technology that provides Internet access by transmitting digital data over the wires of a local telephone network.
Lean systems also use such devices. In a Lean production system, Kanban is a method which uses standard units or lot sizes with a single card attached to each. A new card is "pulled" into the system only when the work represented by an "in progress" card is completed.
In this paper, I explore visualization methods found widely in agile projects these days, and then propose using Kanban Boards to organize three viewpoints Time, Task, and Team so that the whole team understands the current status of the project and can work in an autonomous, motivated and collaborative manner.
A primitive way of doing this is just putting story cards or task cards on the wall. Below, I show examples of the visualizations found in agile teams in Japan.
Task Kanban Board A Kanban means a ticket describing a task to do. In Figure 1, a Kanban Board shows the current status of all the tasks to be done within this iteration. The tasks are represented by cards Post-It Notesand the statuses are presented by areas on the board separated and labeled ToDo, Doing, and Done.
This Kanban Board helps the team understand how they are doing well as well as what to do next and makes the team self-directing. Feature Kanban Board The horizontal axis of this chart is a timeline and vertical areas in the timeline represent releases and each card posted to the areas represents one feature that will be implemented in the release.
Burndown Chart It is first described in Scrum [Schwaber01] to show the remaining backlog, and has now spread to most agile projects [Cockburn04], [Cohn05]. It captures the current status as well as the rate of progress of completing the remaining tasks.
Use a card as a token Kanban of a task, story, feature and stick them to a timeline board.
There are several levels of granularities. Count the number of Kanbans backlog tasks and track it in a timebox to show the trend of work accomplished.
There are also several levels of granularities. Summarize the top-level project status. Other than Niko-niko calendars, there are a lot of variations of using calendars to show project status or plan.
Organizing Kanbans from Three Viewpoints Looking closely at Kanban Boards, you can find three things expressed on them — time, task, and team. Here I try to organize Kanbans from these three viewpoints.
Figure 6 Breakdown of Time and Task 1. A release is typically 1- to 6-months long and is the most coarse-grained timebox. It is a sync point of the whole team so everyone in the whole team should be interested in it.
An iteration is the second level timebox. It is typically 1- to 4-week long and development teams use it as a major working, tracking and improvement cycle. And every day is the most fine-grained timebox, the team gets together in a stand-up meeting to share project status and problems.
Task There are also three levels of granularity for Tasks. A Feature is a function useful and meaningful to users. A Story is a testable piece of a Feature, also described in the words of users.
And a Task is a work unit of a Story, commonly described in terms used by developers. Team A project team consists of people working toward the same goal. Typically, a manager, customers, developers, business analysts, users, testers and other stakeholders should be members of the team.
The whole team should share information on time and tasks to achieve the project goal. So, it is reasonable to set up Kanbans in combination of Release-Feature, Iteration-Story and Daily-Task as shown in Table 1, although there are many possible other combinations of time and task.
And it goes with a Parking Lot Chart to show the top level status. Acknowledgements Many thanks to Mary Poppendieck, who reviewed this paper thoroughly and provided lots of advice and suggestions.
