Do you always know whether a project is on schedule? Are the cost spent according to a schedule? When will be a project done? Will it cost the money I planned? Earned Value Management will provide such answers.

A new plugin for Easy Project is just available via the Customer Portal. Earned Value Management (EVM), or Earned Value Project/Performance Management (EVPM) is a project management technique for measuring project performance and progress in an objective manner. In a single integrated system, EVM is able to provide accurate forecasts of project performance problems which are an important contribution to good project performance. It is therefore considered a Performance Management approach.

  • Work progress is measured as “earned value” – a yardstick
  • Produces a set of metrics that provide accurate cost and schedule amounts
