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
