Hi Saket,

I was referring one notes file. Is this correct?

EAC ‘no variances’ = BAC / CPI
EAC ‘fundamentally flawed’ = AC + ETC
EAC ‘atypical’ = AC + BAC - EV
EAC ‘typical’ = AC + ((BAC - EV) / CPI)
ETC = EAC - AC
ETC ‘atypical’ = BAC - EV
ETC ‘typical’ = (BAC - EV) / CPI
ETC ‘flawed’ = new estimate
