Value Stream Map Thresholds

Updated 2 months ago by Copado Solutions


Thresholds is a feature included in Value Stream Maps that helps you identify where a process block may have reached a critical point and you need to take action or acknowledge a bottleneck.

For example, in your Develop stage, you can set a threshold for your Idle Time metric higher than 24 hours, when this criterion is met, a red color will be displayed over this metric within the Value Stream Map. 



  • Only numeric characters are currently supported in thresholds configuration. 
  • Custom metrics are supported with threshold configuration. 
  • Only the color red is currently supported if the Value Stream Map exceeds a threshold for a given stage or process block.
