Issue/Introduction

In the burndown chart, it is observed that dates in X-Axis are displaying randomly for teams in the same PI. Ideally, this should represent either iteration start or end date. 

Cause

The application is predicting that the Iteration won't complete until after the end of the Iteration.

Resolution

More information:  The Iteration Start Date is 01/01/2024 and the End Date is 01/4/2024 and the End Date on the chart is 01/17/2024.

The reason for the chart End Date being pushed out past the Iteration End Date is because the application is predicting that the Iteration will end on 01/17/2024.

The prediction series is only shown in active releases. It includes an advanced algorithm to help teams predict when their release and iterations will complete. The algorithm looks at the most recent stable velocity (slope of the accepted series) and the current scope to project the most likely time when the current scope will be completed. The sophistication of the algorithm is in how it picks the recent stable period.
