Okay, I think I was a bit off. I reviewed this further, and the PMBOK is emphatic in using EV to determine variances in Control Schedule. See the PM Prepcast E06.06.

So while I still believe it to be true that for the most part PMI does not endorse a major tool or methodology be "better" than another ... there are exceptions.

It is my understanding that you will not be make to choose. PMI teaches a project management framework that is agnostic in regards to the tools you use. You should know what tool can (and cannot) be used along with its pros and cons, but I highly doubt the exam will ask us if a certain tool or technique is better than another.

It might ask which one is more appropriate in a given situation. In that case, EVM is better suited to contracts (value focused) and CCPM better suited to production work (resource focused).

As per my understanding, the CCPM is becomming more and more widely used for optomizing project schedule and resources, and it is more effective measuring and tracking tool than EVM.

But, also, in the PMP Exam, if by any chance I have to choose between CCPM and then I have to select EVM over CCPM.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
