The Burn Up Charts are also used as a progress indicators in Agile Project Management. A Burn-up Chart clearly shows both completed work and the project scope. Making it the inverse of the Burn-down chart (discussed here). At the end of each day, there is a visual representation of the amount of work completed and the overall amount of total work.
The ‘work done’ is represented by the vertical axis, and the ‘time’ is measured by the horizontal axis. The distance between the two lines is thus, the amount of work remaining. When the two lines eventually meet, the project is said to be completed.
