Progressing and Variances

Know your project's progress with certainty

Percent complete in Core Project Control can optionally be recorded at two levels below the item level.  This provides an easy  way to record, for example,  the percent complete of individual drawings or individual instruments and the progress of various activities for each instrument's completion without adding this low level detail to cost reports although the result rolls-up to the cost reports.

 

Experience has shown that recording percent complete at a low level is the best way to know where you are.

Earned Value, Cost Performance Index (CPI), and Earned Commitment

These three values are based on progressing.  Core Project Control provides a structure for very accurate progressing and therefore accurate values for the above variance indicators. 

In addition to the above price and efficiency variances are calculated at the item level.
