Controlling Budget & Schedule with Earned Value Management
Leading the project team and controlling the project rests solidly on the shoulders of the project manager. Other managers of the firm may market the work and negotiate contracts. Others may even create the initial project budget and schedule for a project. But when it comes to managing and controlling the project, the project manager, and no one else, has full responsibility. With this in mind, it is critical that each project manager develop the project control skills required to complete each project successfully.
Earned Value Management (EVM) is one of the best ways to control project budget and schedule as well as to manage project risks and keep architects and engineers out of trouble. When used properly, EVM introduces an added level of transparency with respect to project scope, timeframe, and budget. After completing this course, you will have an understanding of the fundamentals and application of EVM for managing architecture, engineering, and construction projects. Topics covered include:
- Monitoring the project
- A simplified approach to Earned Value Management
- Tracking budgets for small jobs
- Project variance analysis
- Schedule status of each task
- Budget status of each task
- The power of analyzing schedule and budget trends
- Summary of the EVM method
