Figure 1: chart showing cumulative earned value (ev), cumulative actual cost (ac), and cumulative planned value (pv) for a sample 12-month project assigning earned value the rules you use for assigning earned value are highly dependent on how you define your project tasks. Earned value measurement (evm) monitors the planned value (pv), earned value (ev), and actual costs (ac) expended to produce the work of the project cost variance (cv), schedule variance (sv), cost performance index (cpi), and schedule performance index (spi) are the formulas used with the evm technique. Earned value reporting end bac pv ev ac sv spi cv options outlined within the practice standard for earned value management, by the project management.

Project management basics sv = ev -pv example: total budget: 4m $ , project schedule: 1 year, budget spent: 2m $, completion: 1/4, time worked: 2 full month ac = 2m $ ev = 1m $ (1/4 is done. Earned value management variance formulae leverage the earned value management fundamental formulae (bac, ac, pv, and ev) to determine the variances pertaining to project cost and schedule earned value management variance formulae consist of. On your current project, ev = $45,000, ac = $50,000, pv = $40,000 what is the schedule variance as a percentage of the work accomplished at this point in time suggested solution. These concepts do not have widespread implementation due to the snapshot nature of typical month-end evm data reports (pv, ev, and ac) of project duration.
