One of the most challenging parts of building a product is determining where and when to allocate resources. Chisel’s Roadmaps pillar aims to help you solve this problem by giving you access to various tools that make it easier to plan the future of your product. The roadmap pillar gets broken down into four different tools to help with other parts of the planning process.
In Chisel, your products gets further divided into two smaller groups: components and features. Features are individual tasks or initiatives that accomplish a specific smaller goal. Components are groups of features that all try to achieve a similar goal or are related in some way, shape, or form.
The ‘Treeview’ is a tool that lets you add the various features and components that make up your product, score them across a particular axis, and assign them to specific releases. And also sees what tasks need to be done at a glance.
The ‘Release view’ is a tool that lets you see which features are in which release cycles in a card style. Then lets you quickly and easily move features between releases.
The ‘Kanban view’ is a kanban board that shows you which features are being worked on now, which are in progress, and also which are left for future development. Then finally shows the features that you have already completed now.
The timeline view is a calendar that shows which features were worked on during certain time periods, providing you a high-level insight into how time got allocated.
