Kanban features and components:
Kanban Cards - This is a visual representation of tasks. Each card contains information about the task and its status, such as due date, recipient, description, etc.
Kanban Columns – Each column in the table represents a different stage of your workflow. Cards go through the workflow until they are fully completed.
Work-in-Progress Limits – They limit the maximum amount of tasks in different stages of the workflow. Limiting WIP allows you to complete work items faster while helping your team focus only on current tasks.
Kanban Swimlanes – These are horizontal lanes that you can use to separate different activities, teams, classes of service and more.
Commit Point – A commit marks a point in the work process where a work item is ready to be pulled into the system.
Delivery Point - The point in the workflow where work items are considered complete.
