Project Management Using Earned Value is the definitive resource for earned value project management and Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS). This book is about how the planning, control, and management of projects can be improved through the use of the concept called Earned Value.
This book is designed for anyone with a basic familiarity with the requirements and disciplines of project management who desires to understand more about planning and control and how to improve these processes through the use of earned value. The material in this book has been drawn from the collective experiences of the author and many of the professional personnel of Humphreys & Associates involved in project and program management for over 40 years.
While introductory theory is explained, time tested samples are provided throughout the book. To facilitate the learning process, the topics covered are linked together in a process flowchart. The chapters have been grouped into sections with each representing a major activity in the planning and control process: Organization, Scheduling, Estimating, and Earned Value as well as Risk Assessment and Subcontract Management. The book also includes a section on EVMS Implementation. The majority of the chapters contain one or more case studies - these are practical exercises that have been drawn from Humphreys & Associates consulting experiences and presented in Humphreys & Associates seminars and workshops.
This book is recommended by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE) International as the study guide for their Earned Value Professional Certification Exam (EVP).
