Hi,

Regarding following question,

Post-mortem analysis of a project shows a CPI of 0.8 and an SPI of 1.25. What is a plausible explanation for that?
o The project was terminated early. At that time, it was over budget and ahead of schedule.
o The project has produced additional deliverables which were originally not required.
o The project has evidently been finished under budget and behind of schedule.
o The project has evidently been finished over budget and ahead of schedule.

By all means it can be said that the project is over budget and ahead of schedule based on rules but i am unable to understand what make option 1 as right answer instead of 4.

Please help.

Praveen,

Where does this question come from? I don't think this is one that is provided in our materials, right?

I was confused by this as well as 1 and 4 would appear to be valid options.

Is it number 1 because the SPi is so high (relatively speaking) that a project wouldn't be that far ahead of schedule in the real world, so must have been terminated early?

I had the same problem with this question from Lehmann.
according to Lehmann, the answer is "1" but no justification is provided..
I still don't get what is "post-mortem analysis" tho looked it up :huh:

Anyways, hope I'll pass, my exam is next week.

Hassan.

1. The question states 'post-mortem' - > that means the project was closed.
2. At the successfull close of a project SPI should be 1.00 that is EV = PV.
3. For a successfully ended project EV cannot be greater than or less than PV.

Combining the above three - we get the reason for 'abruptly closed'.

Subayu
