How to interpret this report

The goal of a kanban system is to limit the amount of work in process so the work flowing through the system matches its capacity. The report provides a snapshot of the number of stories for each state over the established WIP. This story can be used to assure teams limit their work in progress to optimize flow across the kanban system.
