Can anyone explain the when the following terms mean in the Tracking View and how the various numbers are calculated. I have looked in the online help and the answers are quite vague. I really would appreciate some detailed explanation of the calculations used. Thanks.
Projected Completion Date.
Let's look at an example... If the following values are set:
Release Weekly Capacity = 10 Release Start Date = July 31 Release End Date = October 9 (release duration 10 weeks)
and there are 10 stories assigned to the release with each having 10 points assigned, we have an Operating Capacity of 100%... 100 point release capacity and 100 story points assigned.
Assuming one 10 point story is accepted every week, at mid-release we will have Remaining Work 50 of 100, and Operating Velocity of 10 pts per week.
The Projected Completion will be tracking to the release date. In the below screen capture I accepted the stories 1+ day before the exact 5 week mark so the system expects I will be done a bit sooner than the expected date. Rhythm calculations make some assumptions about linear progress and do a bit of rounding to handle mid-week updates, so they may vary slightly from initial expectations.
