Kanban: from idea to release

Let's turn to the history of Japan and talk about the times when Toyota first began to produce their cars. The company's management thought about how to optimize the process by reducing downtime for employees and production. It was decided to implement the principles that contributed to this - the "principles of lean manufacturing" Kanban.
Years have passed and Kanban - a visual project management framework - is used by most of the enterprises that are engaged in software development. For more than one year, Cordus Technologies Inc. uses Kanban to coordinate work in a team, and its tools and the principle of "just-in-time" solution help to visualize the progress of the project process, clearly set and distribute tasks, and increase productivity.
Using Kanban, you can quickly identify problems that affect the productivity of the entire team. Therefore, there are no indifferent or disinterested people. Everyone is interested in the fact that the error was eliminated quickly and correctly.
Kanban cards help organize the entire Kanban process, coordinate the work in the kanban program board. These tools allow team members to regulate the entire workflow, track the status of each task until it is completed.
In Kanban, any part of the activity in which software is created is measured by task closure, the main metric of this process is the average task completion time. The important thing is that Kanban has no speed rush, no nerve-wracking sprints, and no hard deadlines.

Since Kanban has a limited number of backlogs, the whole team is interested in streamlining development processes, reducing the time to complete tasks, and the quality of code and testing come out on top. Thanks to this, the quality of releases improves, and their planned frequency helps to solve problems clearly and on time.

Many IT companies use this way of working with the backlog. This list of prioritized tasks clearly shows the deadlines by which releases must be ready. Kanban is based on tasks, their status and quantity.
The classic Kanban model has several statuses: "to do" (development tasks), "in progress" (tasks that are currently being performed) and "done" (tasks that are completed or have already been released). The work of an IT company is not possible without testing tasks, that is, the "testing" status. The manager sets up the process and coordinates the work, he fills the backlog, prioritizes tasks, understands their number, makes sure that the process is not interrupted and all tasks are in progress. For example, no more than a certain number of tasks can be in the "in progress" status, this allows the team to concentrate on specific tasks and not reduce the amount of work in progress, so the manager can control such a quantitative parameter as "execution progress" - tasks that are currently moment are under development. This is what makes Kanban different from other development methodologies.
The Kanban concept fits well with in-line work, which is why the technical support team of Cordus Technologies Inc. uses it.
Using the Kanban methodology, the IT team clearly concentrates on a certain stage of work and does everything to close the tasks of the current period. If, for example, a problem occurs during the testing phase, the entire team gets involved in the process and tries to understand the reasons for the problem. If the task is returned for revision, then the testers help the developers to fix the error in the program. Thanks to Kanban, all team members easily communicate with each other, constantly exchange experience and possible solutions.

Cordus Technologies Inc. has been using the Kanban methodology for several years now. Considering that the release version should always be ready to be shown to the customer, this imposes a considerable responsibility on all team members. Therefore, high-quality code and constant testing become the main thing in our work. As a result, the production version of absolutely any part of the project is released almost without delay and bugs.
