Contract Performance – Cost/Schedule Variance Trends

by Humphreys & Associates on August 1, 2022

EVM training is critical for project managers seeking to implement an earned value management system (EVMS) on their projects. One of the most important aspects of EVM is tracking cost and schedule variance trends. Cost variance is the difference between the earned value (the budgeted cost for work performed) and the actual costs of work performed. Schedule variance, on the other hand, is the difference between the earned value (actual progress made on a project) and the budgeted cost for work scheduled in cost terms. By closely monitoring these two metrics, project managers can quickly identify issues that could impact the successful completion of a project. EVM training provides project managers with the tools they need to accurately track cost and schedule variances, and ultimately to deliver successful projects.
