KanbanSim and ScrumSim is a complete suite of modeling, simulation and forecasting tools for Agile software projects..It enables Monte Carlo simulation and a variety of optimization algorithms that help you understand software projects and make better decisions. By modeling proposed or ongoing projects, you have the ability to run what-if experiments in seconds to answer important questions on cost, delivery date and hiring.
Answer these questions with confidence –
When will this project be delivered?
How much will this project cost?
What staff skills do I need to hire next?
What factors are most causing us delays?
How are we tracking against plan?
How are risk factors impacting or forecast?
Simulations include –
Visual simulation of both Kanban and Scrum status boards
Date and Cost forecasting for both Kanban and Scrum project models (date, cost, cost of delay and probability of hitting a given date)
Staff and WIP limit analysis (suggests the next staff skill to hire)
Model sensitivity analysis – find what events or model inputs are causing the most impact on delivery and cost
Data reverse engineering – analyze existing data to find and improve model input estimate ranges
