Kanban ChartUsing online Kanban gives you automatically generated charts

Kanban is a project management method, based on visualization of tasks and limiting the amount of work, which is allowed to be simultaneously processed. The way this works is by use of a board with task cards on it - either a physical board with sticky notes, or a digital board with virtual cards.

Kanban demands that you divide work into tasks and spread them across at least three columns: to do, doing and done. Then, you're meant to apply a Work-In-Progress (WIP) limit, stating how many tasks can be in the Doing column at any time. You can apply a WIP limit per person or per project.

The great benefit of working with Kanban online, is the advantage of having access to automatically generated analytical charts. While you and your team are sliding tasks from one column to another, the software is tracking what you're doing, and geathering this information in statistical form for you to view whenever you feel the need. In this way, without any additional work on your part, you're receiving valuable feedback, which can be used for future process improvements.

Kanban Chart

Kanban Tool, the original online Kanban software, gives you access to a number of charts. You can analyse work type and size distribution in a Breakdown Chart, and review exact working times for each task or team member in Time Report. It is also possible to compare your process' Lead Time - the total time tasks spend on the board - with its Cycle Time, the time tasks are actually being actively worked on. A global analysis of all work completed over time is also available under Cumulative Flow chart. This is where you'd get instant graphic hints of process irregularities, informing you of the process health.
All of this without you having to do any extra work!
