Earned Value Management

Identify project areas that need intervention using Earned Value Management

Contruent Enterprise is an Earned Value Management System (EVMS) that helps organizations find variances in projects based upon the comparison of work performed and work planned. Earned Value Management (EVM) is a project management technique for measuring project performance. Traditional methods for evaluating a project’s health can yield misleading results. The Earned Value process is a proven method for identifying the specific areas of a project that need early management intervention while they are still correctable.

Utilize earned value Cost, Accounting and Schedule Integration (CASI) as a means to efficiently manage and control strategic projects. By establishing a control account and a work breakdown structure (WBS), Contruent is able to measure project performance measurements in regards to the current period, past performance via historical data, and future performance measurement via critical path and earned value methods, thanks to their remarkable predictive capabilities.

Detect significant cost and schedule variances

Identify project issues early to take immediate action

Increase communication and transparency


Early Warning System

One of the most important functions of an EVMS is to provide an early warning system. This means a project’s performance and productivity issues can be identified very early in a project’s life. Significant cost and schedule variances are detectable when the planned work has reached as little as 10% completion on any portion of the project.

Course Corrections

Part of the EVMS process is to determine the cause of performance issues in order to develop a corrective action plan. Course corrections are much easier when performance issues are identified early. This is because the problem is still relatively small and there is plenty of time left in the project to allow a recovery plan to work.

Management by Exception

A project managed at a control account or work package level allows management to easily identify the accounts with performance problems. Management can then focus its efforts on correcting those areas. Alternatively, management can recognize the areas of the project showing good performance.
