### Can someone help on this

Joe is managing a project having budget of \$250,000 and it need to be completed in 10 months. At the time of completion of project, he found that 10% cost of the project is increased because of high material cost and because of delay delivery of material project gets delayed by 10%. Calculate CPI and SPI at the time of project completion.

please try to attempt this question with your own understanding and we can discuss .
for all match and other calculations you should attempt (thats the best way to learn) rather than getting answers/

10% time increased = 11 months =EV
10% cost increased = 250 000 * 1.1 =275 000 =AC
SPI =10/11=.91
CPI =250/275=.91

please read question carefully
Calculate CPI and SPI at the time of project completion.

Now think and answer

### Re: Can someone help on this

please correct me if I am wrong

BAC = 250000
10% increase in cost means AC = 250000 and 10% of 250000 (25000 extra)
so AC = 275000
EV will remain 250000 because that's what we were suppose to finish so at completion EV = PV = 250000

CPI = EV/AC = 250000/275000 = .909

SPI = EV/PV = 250000/250000 = 1

### Re: Can someone help on this

The Question shouls be cleared of fnishing date. Cost increased by 10% due to material cost and delayed supply.
EV= PV
I think sometimes are not really clear. Hopefully in final PMP it should be mentioned clearly.

Best Regards.

We discussed about CPI , how about SPI project has been delayed by 10%
Can you explain how EV =PV if material gets delayed by 10% as it is not explained project finished on time.
