is EVM in WPI ?

Postby Housam Bassal Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:11 pm

A project team has recently computed the project's current schedule and cost performance indices. They have also calculated the new estimate to complete and the TCPI based on the new estimate at completion. The project key stakeholders are not fully aware of the earned value management process. These measures in this case are an example of?
A. Work performance data
B. Lessons learned
C. Work performance information
D. Learning curve for the stakeholders

A - The scenario gives a situation where the project team has calculated some measures that need to be transformed into a format that the project stakeholders might understand. These measures are work performance data for this project. Work performance information is always in a format that can be easily understood by the project stakeholders. This is clearly neither an example of lessons learned nor is it an example of a learning curve for the stakeholders.

I think the correct answer should be C, as the project team calculate CV,SV,CPI,SPI,TCPI, then all these information will be part of WPI , what do you think? :?

All raw measurements like actual cost, etc is WPD.
Derived information like SV , CV etc is WPI

based on the information provided in question it sounds more like WPI
