Assess How Much Work You Deliver

Throughput measures the number of work items delivered on a specific day, week or month. The Throughput Run Chart for Azure DevOps displays the throughput of your team, within a certain time frame. The horizontal axis is your timeline, while the vertical axis represents your throughput. Each bar is made up of colored sections to denote the different types of your completed work.

Analyze Your Throughput Trends

The dotted green line plotted on the graph is your throughput trendline. It uses polynomial regression to help you analyze how your throughput trends have progressed over the selected time period.

Pro Tip

If the trendline declines, this is probably caused by too much work in progress that can’t be handled simultaneously. In that case, assess your work in progress. Consider reducing your WIP limits and direct your team’s attention towards the bottlenecks in your system.
