Given the following information for a one-year project, answer the following questions.
PV = $23,000
EV = $20,000
AC = $25,000
BAC = $120,000
Recall that PV is panned valued, EV is the earned value, AC is the actual cost, and BAC s the budget at completion.
a. What are the cost variances, schedule variance, cost performance index (CPI), and scheduled performance index (SPI) for the project?
b. How is the project doing? Is it ahead of schedule or behind schedule? Is it under budget or over budget?
