From the Author
The goal of this book is to educate the reader on the principles of EVM and then provide a roadmap of how EVM might at first be applied, followed by additional features that add accuracy and detail to the EVM data.
The simplified approaches will not result in an EVM system that meets ANSI 748 or US Government expectations. However, they do not preclude a project or organization from expanding their EVM system to meet ANSI 748 at a later date.
This book is NOT recommended for those who plan to take Earned Value Professional certification exam. The exam is based upon ANSI 748 and this book may mislead the reader. Visit Management Technologies for more information about the EVP certification and exam.
