Cycle/Lead Time

The Cycle/Lead Time app allows you to view the average number of days it takes work to flow through your process. You can measure the time it takes for work to pass through CA Agile Central schedule states to acceptance . This is useful for teams who use Kanban and Lean practices in CA Agile Central.

Cycle Lead Time

Data displayed in the app is in the same format as the Cycle Time chart. Select the chart to go to the Reports tab where you may view additional information, including a key and summary metrics.

Note: The data roll up for the Cycle/Lead Time chart occurs at the end of the time period, while the legend label indicates the beginning of the time period. You will not see data for a time period while it is still being collected.

  1. From the app gear menu, select Settings.
