This video continues to discuss Kanban as a workflow management process and introduces a simple Kanban board in the LeanKit tool to demonstrate how work items are processed within the steps of a software development process. It introduces the question of how work in progress (WIP) can be limited in the Kanban board.
- Kanban is a work process management methodology.…It uses a visual mode to track work,…identify bottlenecks,…and determine areas that need improvement.…In Japanese, the word kan means visual…and the word ban means card,…so kanban means a visual card.…Kanban is based on lean manufacturing principles.…In lean manufacturing,…a visual card is used to signal…that a system is ready to process an item.…
This is called a pull system.…It processes work items when they are ready.…Hence the name kanban.…Let's take a look at how a kanban board works.…Our imaginary agile fitness center team…uses a digital tool called LeanKit for their board.…Work items are pulled from the product backlog…and placed on the first lane or step…called planning/coordination.…
Our agile team processes each user story…in the following four steps,…planning/coordination, design,…develop, and accept.…The kanban board allows the team to visualize their work.…They can very easily see the status of their work items.…Any team member can drag or drop items…
