A Queuing Model for Kanban in Software Development
How much does the Lead Time change if we hire one more developer? If you would like to see the industrial engineering approach to this simple but hard question, I would like to present a Queuing Model and a Simulation of a Kanban application which answers this and more, instantly on stage!
“How much does the Lead Time change if we hire one more developer?” Kanban is widely used in Software Engineering and different industries today. Although its popularity increases, it is not easy to find scientific approaches and direct links between key parameters of team formation such as the number and skills of team members, impediments of the team, the dependencies the team has, continuous improvement practices, types of works, different stations that work is handled to Lead Time and Cycle Time. I hereby present a strong Simulation model which visually helps understanding the effects of these parameters to key Metrics. This simulation will also respond to the questions including “How much does the Lead Time change if we hire one more developer?” or “Should we hire a developer or an analyst?” on the stage using the simulation and the visualization of it
