Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize basic EVM concepts and terminology, and know how to interpret EVM reports and graphs.
  • Explain the governing policies, requirements, and the American National Standards Institute/Electronic Industries Alliance - 748 (latest version), Earned Value Management Systems (ANSI/EIA-748) guidelines for EVM on NASA projects.
  • Recognize the principles involved in establishing a performance measurement baseline (PMB), including: the role of the work breakdown structure (WBS) in defining scope; the value of developing a responsibility assignment matrix; the importance of the integrated master schedule; and the significance of tying the budget to the schedule with the WBS.
  • Describe the earned value methods for discrete effort, apportioned effort, and level of effort.
  • Recognize how to use performance indices and factors to calculate estimates of the final cost and variances from the baseline.
