A burndown chart is a graphical representation of all of the work remaining to be done in a project and progress towards completion. Work remaining is displayed on the y-axis and time elapsed is displayed on the x-axis with a diagonal line connecting the upper-left and lower-right corners; when 0% of time has elapsed, 100% of work remains and when 100% of the allotted time has been spent, 0% of the work should remain. This tool helps developers and project managers determine if a project is on schedule or running behind. Visualizations of different project components can provide a better understanding of actual progress and help budget time and resources more effectively.
