I would like to know if it is possible to use the Cumulative Flow Diagram - CFD in CLM 6. Is there any widget or report that shows this diagram?

Rational Insight has this feature. See:

I wouldn't recommend relying on Insight for this feature, since Insight is ending support.

Hi Leonardo,

I see "Cumulative Flow Diagram" metrics mentioned in SAFe Reporting Guidelines 6.0.3 (2017-03-09).pd​f (page 15) but it is probably not delivered yet.!/wiki/W54ecb028c53d_48b0_9d5e_4584a00489d3/page/SAFe%20Reporting

Hi Cathy Xu, I'd found an widget named Cumulative Value Flow in ccm panel. And in Shared Reports, a report named "Cumulative Value Flow". Is that the same as Cumulative Flow Diagram?

Hi Leonardo,

I think it is.

Cumulative Value Flow
Displays an area plot of open work items, in-progress work items, and closed work items over time. By default, this widget is displayed in the product backlog (release plan) and the iteration plan (phase plan).

Well folks, so I conclude that the Cumulative Flow Diagram - CFD is not yet available in CLM 6.x; We have a widget that approaches but does not fulfill the request completely.

I directed customer to open an RFE for IBM.

Thank you all.
