-- Visual Paradigm International, a leading provider of visual modeling software announces the release of Visual Paradigm version 13.2. The new version has significant improvement and provision of new features specifically tailor-made for agile project teams. Kanban Board is one of the many new features.
Kanban was initially developed in the 1950s at Toyota, by Taiichi Ohno, as a method for supporting JIT (just-in-time)
production and reducing inefficiencies through the whole supply chain. It has been gaining momentum as a simple and pragmatic approach to managing software development.
Visual Paradigm 13.2 added Kanban Board to its agile toolset. The Kanban Board in Visual Paradigm consists of a board of user stories, categorized by columns of statuses. The use of Kanban ensures every bit of work item is flow efficiently from the start to the end with as little waste and delay as possible. This requires limiting the work in progress in the pipeline to what can be realistically consumed of those work items at a given time. The Kanban approach moves the work items from one phase to the next only when it is pulled through by the next team member(s). Work should never be pushed forward, so bottlenecks of flow could be minimized.
Besides Kanban Board, the new version of Visual Paradigm has also incorporated the concept of estimation for user stories, the definition of steps for confirmation items, customizable user story statuses as well as the quick view of user story.
