Whiteboard Wednesday: Using Your Bug Tracker For Estimation Tracking

Filed Under Estimation, Whiteboard Wednesdays

As I mentioned in the video above, my team does their bug tracking with Jira, and because it is flexible enough to add in custom user defined fields, I added the Points drop down list. After that, I simply created some reports using their pre-canned charts and wam-bam I have my burn up charts.

Just a few additional hints when attempting to leverage your issue tracker to help with estimation analysis:

  • Make sure you keep 1:1 relationships with issues/estimations
  • Split issues into weekly iterations (or sprint)
  • If you cant create dashboards, learn how to export the data so you can still use it
  • Track everything – completion rate, completion velocity, growth velocity, and project completion date
