Re: Project Charter

I think option 3 is the right choice. Project Charter has not been approved yet finally. It is in the process of development. Project sponsor should give authority to the Project Manger for using project statement of work to have access to it.

BAC = $100000
AC= $50000
EV = 40% of BAC= .40 x 100000 =$40000
PV = 50% of BAC = .5 x 100000 =$50000 (Actually Planned For)
Should have been done = $50000
SV= 40000/50000 =.8 < 1 Behind Schedule

When project performance shows over budget then a new EAC should be calculated .
At that time TCPI should be

TCPI = BAC-EV/( EAC-AC) but since it is under budget then CPI <1
TCPI = BAC-EV/( BAC-AC) might be used . CPI>1
