Jira Align Feature metrics


 we have a longstanding struggle in finding some meaningful high level metrics around feature flow … metrics that would help us that review the flow of work and figure out why we have such a high number of features per PI. Kindly suggest!

Thank you.

@LAXMI ABHINAV REDDY ARAE It sounds like your programs are committing to more features in a PI than they have capacity for. The Feature Backlog Column View is a way programs can load PIs based on the capacity (in points) of the program. Capacity is calculated based on the program's last two PIs or you can manually enter that value. This does require that features be estimated. If you Jira Align instance is configured to estimate features by Team Weeks, Member Weeks or T-shirt sizes, you will need to configure the estimate conversion in the Platform settings to convert the estimates to points. The view has a load bar that shows how much the PI is loaded vs. program capacity. The Feature Backlog Process Step View provides visibility of the work in progress (WIP) in a PI for a program. The view requires setting up a process flow for a program which enables program teams to manage the flow of your features. In addition, this can be used in conjunction with the Process Step Cycle Time report to see how long it take value to flow through the program. If you are looking for the flow metric referenced in the book Project to Product, there are two Atlassian Community articles on how you can derive this from Jira Align. One article, Measuring the Flow of Value Using Flow Metrics, describes how you can manually derive the data from Jira Align views and reports and the other article, How Jira Align Supports Flow Metrics, shows how it can be represented in Tableau from Jira Align Enterprise Insights.
