I have been applied Kanban in some projects and I would like to track the work items in order to provide some predictability and later be able to forecast. My flow has “ready” column and “done” for each step before the last one, when the work items depart the system. There are 5 columns at all.
I’m using Trello, it works in a very amazing way in terms of transparency and vizualization, but I’m unable to find out some plugin or extension that would track, for each step, the arrivals and departures; and between steps and from the begin (first column) and the end (last one) of the system.
The idea is to track throughput, cycle time, work item aging, and WIP limits.
Has anyone ever seen some approach that works by using Trello or another free, or even a paid tool?
I've posted it too in another forum, "Agile and Lean Software Development" on LinkedIn. One of the repliers also recommended Jira. In fact, there are another suitable options according to the respondents over there.
