Life Is Better When Things Flow – Apply 0/100 Principle to CI/CD

“0/100”, or zero defects and 100% first-time-through (FTT), is the holy grail of the Lean manufacturing movement. Zero defects mean that your product or service will have no defects when it is provided to the customer and 100% FTT means that as your in-progress work moves through your workstations or value stream, it is successful on the first try so there is no re-work or in-process repair. In this presentation, I will demonstrate that how the 0/100 principle and other Lean Manufacturing tools and techniques can be applied in automated software delivery process, especially when you have a properly constructed CI/CD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery) pipeline using Jenkins or other DevOps platforms. A well-designed Agile and CI/CD delivery pipeline is essential to keep things flow in software development process; ensuring features are moving from ideation to production at a steady and predictable pace. Doing this will not only allow for better quality and faster delivery, but also for the long-term sustainability and employee satisfaction.
