Confusion on EAC formula

Postby shankars Wed Dec 03, 2014 10:51 am

Hi Saket
I did watch your you-tube video on EVM techniques and it helped me to clarify lot of grey areas. Thanks a lot.

I had a query. Why do use EAC= BAC/CPI and not EAC= AC +BAC/CPI in case we would like to continue with the current CPI.

Please clarify.

Regards
Shankar

hi Shankar ,

EAC = BAC/CPI is used when the current CPI is expected to continue till the completion of the project
EAC = AC + BAC - EV is used when the case is atypical , i.e., one time unexpected case has happened , but the remaining work i.e. BAC-EV will be completed as planned earlier.
EAC = AC + BAC/CPI is not a valid formula , it could be EAC = AC + (BAC-EV)/CPI , or EAC = AC + (BAC - EV) /(CPI*SPI)

Thanks
Regards ,

One more thing I would like to share, we should use EAC = AC + (BAC - EV) /(CPI*SPI) when deadline of the project has to be met at any cost. There was a question in Quampus on this formula.

Cheers,
