Abstract:

Earned Value Management (EVM) is the practice of evaluating cost and schedule data to measure productivity and progress throughout the lifecyle of a project. EVM, however, often has the stigma of being overly complex and burdensome to implement in a useful way.

This session will discuss best practices in implementing a simple yet robust earned value management solution for organizations that benefit from progress measurement and the ability to forecast cost performance, but don’t need to comply with ANSI 748, the EVM standard often used by government agencies and contractors. We’ll discuss topics including the integration of required data, developing key performance indicators (KPI) and metrics, application of rules of credit, updating of percent complete, and automated EV reporting.
