 Yerikzhan Torekhanov Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 6 Thank you received: 2 Earned Value = sum of planned values of completed work. So, for each activity you need to calculate value of completed work by multiplying planned value and percent completed, then sum all up. Schedule Variance = the difference between the work completed and the work planned to be completed. SV = EV - PV. So basicaly, when you calculate Schedule Variance, you ask yourself "I only completed so much work by now (Planned Value * Percent Complete) but should have completed that much (sum of Panned Value of all activities that should have been completed). Am I behind schedule (completed work is less than planned, SV is negative), on time (completed equals the amount of work that was planned, SV is zero), or ahead of schedule (completed more work than was planned, SV is positive)?" Take a look at PMBOK Guide Table 7-1. Earned Value Calculations Summary Table on page 224. Hope this helps Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

 Annie Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 7 Thank you received: 0 EV calculation: Analysis = \$500, 100% completed hence same as Planned Value(PV) Design = \$750, only 75% of PV completed You can work out the rest and SV with EV values using the formulas. I am not yet certified and in the progress of preparing for exam. Could any PMP-certified member verify if this is correct? Thanks. Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.
