PMP® Challenge Question – 2/1

There were no correct responses to the last challenge question, so I’ll hold those questions for future use. Here’s a fresh question to start off February:

An Earned Value Analysis for a recently closed out project revealed:

SPI = 0.7, CPI = 1.0

State at least THREE conclusions you can draw from this statement.

See you on 2/15 with the correct answer!

    The obvious conclusion you can draw from a schedule performance index of less than one is that the project is behind schedule. A cost performance index of 1.0 indicates that the project is exactly where it should be based on earned value vs actual costs. The last conclusion you could make would be that the estimate at completion is on track. Using the short BAC estimate you could conclude costs are on track for the your EAC.
