Given the following information for a one-year project, answer the following questions. Recall that PV is the planned value. EV is the earned value, AC is the actual cost, and BAC is the budget at completion.
PV = $23,000
EV = $20,000
AC = $25,000
BAC = $120,000
a. What is the cost variance, schedule variance, cost performance index (CPI),
and schedule performance index (SPI) for the project?
b. How is the project doing? Is it ahead or schedule or behind schedule? Is it under
budget or over budget?
c. Use the CPI to calculate the estimate at completion (EAC) for this project. Is the
project performing better or worse than planned?
d. Use the schedule performance index (SPI) to estimate how long it will take to
finish this project.
