When looking at the life of a project plan, it is useful to graph and outline the cost variance (CV), and schedule variance (SV). Determining progress, or lack of progress, provides essential information to assess a given project.
Complete exercise 2 in chapter 13 of the textbook. Given the data provided, in an excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint, or other appropriate method of delivery, determine the following:
- Schedule Variance (SV)
- Cost Variance (CV)
- Schedule Performance Index (SPI)
- Cost Performance Index (CPI)
In 250-300 words, answer the questions provided with the exercise. Reflect on the assessment of this project assessment. Should the project continue to improve?
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
Chapter 13 Exercise 2: On day 51 a project has an earned value of $600, an actual cost of $650, and a planned cost of $560. Compute the SV, CV, and CPI for the project. What is
