comment In Scrum, how to handle contention/workload at end of sprint
Continuous integration is what the integration system does all by itstelf once integrators integrally integrated each device on it. Unfortunately, with our setup, it is not as simple as checking the code in, we need physical connections setup with motors and I/O Cards and what not. Making sure your new device runs in the CI environment is a task itself, and that is the task causing contention. Interestingly enough, taking whatever is on the CI system and putting it on the real machine is a rather trivial process - proving that CI is worth it.

Actually, integration can be done on the system at any time. The issue is that there is nothing to integrate before the tasks are at integration stage, and most arrive at that stage near the end of the sprint, hence contention.
