]po[ Earned Value Management

(Please click on the hexagons for more information)


This package implements the Earned Value Management process (EVM, also sometimes called Earned Value Analysis or EVA) as defined in Earned Value Management (Wikipedia) . It allows users to compared planned with actual and earned costs during the life cycle of a project in a graphical and intuitive way.


The image above shows a typical project that is not going very well with three lines:

  • Work Planned (hours) - The work as defined in the project plan by means of a Gantt diagram or similar
  • Work Done (hours) - The work actually completed, as measured by the "percentage done" value of each task, multiplied with the planned work of that task
  • Work Logged (hours) - The hours logged by the project team while performing the work

In this example, a project manager might deduce:

  • The project is only 70% finished, even though it should be finished already
  • The project is already over budget, even though there are 30% work left to do.
