An Overview of EVMS Design and Documentation
A complete set of EVMS documentation typically includes the corporate EVM policy, the EVM System Description, related procedures, storyboard, desktop instructions, and sometimes role-based handbooks. This is illustrated below. Which documents you need to create or enhance is dependent on what you already have in place as well as your business requirements.
A Requirements Analysis can provide the basis for determining the amount of effort required to design the overall system and produce the required documents. The goal is to create a fully integrated project control system that is used on a day-to-day basis to manage project work effort from the proposal stage through final product delivery. The design and documentation of an EVMS is an iterative process that involves constantly testing who is doing what when to produce a useful end result. The goal is to eliminate anything that has the potential to compromise the effectiveness or use of the EVMS.
An option to quickly produce an EVM system description is to license the use of H&A's Z-Best Company EVMS Model System Description.
