Burnup chart

About the burnup chart

A burnup chart is similar to a burndown chart, it helps to track the actual progress of the team against the ideal progress.
  • Track the completed estimation points on a daily basis.
  • Compare the team's actual progress with its ideal progress.
  • See how the sprint should've progressed using the ideal line.
  • Track the current progress of the sprint which is represented by the actual line.
  • Know the total number of points completed and points remaining at the end of the day.

Viewing the burnup chart

  1. Navigate to Reports module.
  2. Select View by as Sprint Reports
  3. Select Report type as Burnup. 
    • The X-axis represents the Date , and the Y-axis represents the Estimation Points .
    • The legends show the Sprint Name Ideal Actual , and Predicted lines.
  4. Select Compare , if you would like to compare two or more sprints at a time.
You can compare only five sprints.

  • The completed estimation points are marked with (+).
  • The reopened and newly added estimation points are marked with (-).
In the same project, Helen tries to track the User Interface sprint. Let's see how burnup chart will function.

Start and End date: 07/13/2017 - 07/27/2017

Total committed estimation points: 295

Target: The target of the team is to burnup the points from 0 to 295 .

Consistent progress: The chart inclines when the team completes the points.

Inconsistent progress: The chart declines when the team reopens or add new points.

The ideal line (Grey) is the sprint's start and end date and the actual line (Orange) is the current progress of the sprint.

How's the predicted end date calculated?

Based on the average velocity per day, the predicted end date is calculated.

1. Total completed estimation points = Total committed estimation points - Total pending estimation points.
From the start until now, the team has completed 146 points (295 (Total committed estimation points) - 149 [total pending estimation points today] = 146 [Total completed estimation points until today]

2. Average velocity per day =  Completed estimation points until today / No. days taken to complete the points

Here, the team has completed 146 points and the no. of days taken to complete the points is 67. So, the average velocity is (146/67 = 2).
3. Predicted end date = Pending estimation points / Average velocity per day
Here, the team has 149 pending estimation points and the average velocity per day is 2. So, the predicted end date is (149/2 = 74)
It will take 74 more days for the team to complete the sprint. So, the predicted end date is 11 /27/2017 The team is behind schedule.
