How to interpret this report
There is no easy calculation that states 1 LOE point should equal a certain amount of time spent on a given story. Though there is a relationship between LOE and time spent, the numbers will vary based on several factors, such as team skill level and estimate accuracy.
However, a team that does a good job of estimating LOE and has a steady velocity will become more predictable and reliable, which will help with overall capacity planning and portfolio management.
