Z-Best Company EVMS Model System Description

Humphreys & Associates' Z-Best Company Earned Value Management System (EVMS) Model System Description can expedite the system design and documentation development process to address all EIA-748 process areas for your unique business environment. The Z-Best System Description template provides a solid foundation to develop a management system which meets the objectives of the 32 guidelines in the EIA-748 as well as government agency EVMS guidelines. It is also designed to satisfy the requirements for customer performance measurement reporting. Our experienced consultants can help you tailor the Z-Best template to quickly develop your system's detailed descriptive text so that it is easy to follow and implement for the end users.

This document is a  framework upon which to build your EVM system and system description. You will need to modify this framework to reflect your specific business environment, organization functions, processes, and procedures. Your system forms, inputs, and outputs will need to reflect your company unique environment and business needs.

“Z-Best is practically a turnkey EVMS System Description with a few sections that need to be updated to your companies’ internal processes.  We should have licensed Z-Best from the beginning instead of developing our own, it would have saved us a year, a lot of money, and we would have had a compliant SD on the first try.”
