Decrease time spent in rework KPI

Set objective to decrease time spent in rework.

The goal might be defined as follows: “Max 15% of time spent for all issues to be in rework / bug fixing.

Check below the step by step configuration of the goal:

Step 1: Add 2 data sources. One with all issues and the other one with the Bugs only.

Step 2: Select metric “Σ Time Spent (h)”.

Step 3: Set Data Source: B (with the Bugs) that will be used for the metric calculation.

Step 4: Set ‘Display by’ to be ‘Priority’. That’s what will be shown on the x-axis.

Step 5: Select ‘Stacked by’ components.

Step 6: Switch on Target section and select tab ‘% of Total’.

Step 7: Select data source: A (with All issues) for the target metric calculation. By default the target metric is ‘Current Metric’ which means that the ‘Σ Time Spent (h)’ will be used here as well.

Step 8: Set target level value.

Step 9: Set target as negative by choosing ”Exceeding is’: Bad. This means that if the total is above the target level it will be considered as failed to achieve and marked in red.

Step 10: Under ‘More Settings’ section enable the ‘Custom Target Label’ setting. Set label, e.g. Fail, that indicates on the chart the Target is negative.
