I sent a similar email after Ocata was released [1] and these are our 
blueprint burndown chart results for Pike [2].

Comparing to Ocata, the trends and numbers are nearly identical. Things 
ramp up until the spec freeze, then tail off, with a little spike toward 
the end which is generally exceptions or accounting for things I missed, 
e.g. blueprints that weren't targeted to the pike series correctly in 

Comparing final numbers to Ocata

Max targeted / approved for Ocata: 78 / 70

Max targeted / approved for Pike: 76 / 69

Final completed for Ocata: 47

Final completed for Pike: 50


Ocata was as shorter cycle so we knew numbers would be down compared to 
Newton. Pike was a full 6 month cycle again, but we were also hit with 
the OSIC layoffs during Pike which set some things back. As a result, we 
lost some people but others stepped up in both reviews and taking 
ownership of some in progress items, which was great to see.

We can talk about this and more during the PTG when we go through our 
Pike retrospective [3].
