Earn Value Management

The technique of Earn Value Management assists project managers maintain updates on project status as well as forecasting its performance in future.

The following formulae are helpful in completion of the status reports:

  1. Earned Value (EV) = Base line cost X Actual % Complete
  2. Actual Cost (AC) = Hourly Rate X Total Hours Spent
  3. Planned Value (PV) = Hourly Rate X Total Hours Planned or Scheduled
  4. Cost Variance (CV) = Earned Value (EV) – Actual Cost (AC)
  5. Schedule Variance (SV) = Earned Value (EV) – Planned Value (PV)
  6. Budget At Completion (BAC) = Baselined Effort hours X Hourly Rate
