An Earned Value Tutorial
This effort by article by Mark Durrenberger, while accurate enough, is overly simplistic and reflects a typically PMI centric view of earned value. For instance, while mark recognizes the challenge of measuring the % complete of intangible tasks, he does not suggest how to accurately measure them. Contrast this with AACE, who offer 6 common methods. IMPO, AACE, in their Skills and Knowledge of Cost Engineering, 5th Edition http://tinyurl.com/ylbh8bc contains a MUCH more complete and robust treatment of Earned Value.IMPO, the BEST book on project management is Humphrey's Earned Value Project Management. For those who want a step by step approach, Humphrey's is far, far better than the PMBOK Guide, even though they cover almost exactly the same topics......BR,Dr. PDG, Jakartahttp://wwww.build-project-management-competency.com
