11.8.2. Requirements Burndown Graph

The Requirements Burndown graph shows the remaining number of story points that needs to be completed for each release/iteration in the project with separate lines for the estimated and ideal burndown. In addition, the graph includes bars for the completed number of story points in each time period on the x-axis:

The y-axis of the graph displays the total remaining number of story points that needs to be done (the actual burndown), with a blue line indicating the ideal burndown. In addition, there are bars displayed at each interval of the x-axis that shows the completed number of story points for that interval.

The x-axis can be configured to display three different levels of granularity:

  • All Releases – This shows the total remaining number of story points that needs to be done for each of the releases in the project
  • Specific Release – This shows the total remaining number of story points that needs to be done for each of the iterations in the selected release
  • Specific Iteration – This shows the total remaining number of story points that needs to be done for each working day in the date-range covered by the selected iteration.

Clicking on the “Display Data Grid” link will display the underlying data that is being used to generate the graph. In addition, clicking on the Download Data as CSV link will export the datagrid into Comma Separated Values (CSV) format that can be opened in MS-Excel. Some browsers also support the ability to save the graph as an image file (JPEG, PNG and GIF formats).
