PROJECT MONITORING

Project Monitoring refers to the process of keeping track of
all project-related metrics including team performance and
task duration, identifying potential problems and taking
corrective actions necessary to ensure that the project is
within scope, on budget and meets the specified deadlines.
It clarifies the objectives of the project, links the activities to
the objectives, sets the target, reports the progress to the
management and keeps the management aware of the
problems which crop up during the implementation of the
project.
Why Project monitoring?
• To assess the project results
•To improve process planning
• To promote learning
• To understand stakeholder’s perspectives
• To ensure accountability
Questions have to be answered through Project
Monitoring
Are tasks being carried out as planned?
Are there any unforeseen consequences that arise as a
result of these tasks?
How is your team performing at a given period of
time?
What are the elements of the project that needs
changing?
What is the impact of these changes?
Will these actions lead you to your expected results?
EARNED VALUE ANALYSIS
• Earned value analysis is the project monitoring tool that is used
to measure project progress which compares the actual work
completed at any time with respect to the original budget and
schedule.
• It also compares the work achieved with the cost of achieving
that work. From these three pieces of data, performance can be
trended and metrics calculated to express the status of the project.
• This is the practice of determining how much of the contract
budget has been ‘earned’ on the basis of the actual progress
which has been made to date and comparing this to the amount of
cost incurred and to the planned value.
Earned Value Calculation
Performing the earned value calculation at each predefined
status points is a 5 step process.
1. Gather Work Performance Information
2. Determine Schedule Status
3. Determine Cost Status
4. Forecasting
5. Reporting
Gathering Work Performance Information
To start, the project manager gathers four pieces of information
for each task:
Budget at Completion (BAC)
Planned Value (PV)
Earned Value (EV)
Actual Cost (AC)
These are the inputs to the earned value analysis.
Budget at Completion (BAC): Refers to the budget of each
task. This is determined during project planning phase.
Planned Value (PV): Also called the Budgeted Cost of Work
Scheduled (BCWS). It is the amount that the project is
supposed to be complete up to that status point.
Earned Value (EV): Also called the Budget Cost of Work
Performed (BCWP), the EV is the measure of the work
performed at a specific point in time, expressed in terms of
the approved budget authorized for that work. It is the
amount that the project is actually complete up to that status
point.
Actual Cost (AC): Also called the Actual Cost of Work
Performed (ACWP), the AC is the realized cost for the work
performed during a specific time period. It is the actual
cost of the work up to that status point. Generally employee
hours need to be converted into a cost, and all project costs
need to be added up, such as the following items:
 Labor
 Materials
 Equipment
 Fixed cost items, like subcontractors
Determine Schedule Status
It’s time to answer the question:
How far ahead or behind schedule is the project?
To do this, we will calculate two variables from the initial
four we gathered from the project data, above:
 Schedule Variance (SV)
 Schedule Performance Index (SPI)
• Schedule Variance (SV): The schedule variance, usually
abbreviated SV, tells how far ahead or behind schedule the
task is in terms of the task budget. It is expressed in terms of
the task budget, not the actual hours or days ahead or behind
schedule.
The formula is:
SV = EV – PV
 If SV is negative, the task is behind schedule.
 If SV is zero, the task is on schedule
 If SV is positive, the task is ahead of schedule.
• Schedule Performance Index (SPI): The Schedule
Performance Index, normally abbreviated SPI, is similar to
the Schedule Variance (SV). It also tells how far ahead or
behind schedule the task is in terms of the task budget, but it
is a relative measure rather than an absolute one. The
formula is:
SPI = EV / PV
If SPI is less than 1, the task is behind schedule.
If SPI is one, the task is on schedule
If SPI is greater than 1, the task is ahead of schedule.
Determine Cost Status
In this step, we seek to answer the following question.
How far over or under budget is the project?
To do this we will calculate two more variables from the initial
four we gathered from the project data.
• Cost Variance (CV)
• Cost Performance Index (CPI)
• Cost Variance (CV): The Cost Variance, usually abbreviated
CV, is the amount that the task is over or under its budget. It
must be calculated for each task and summed to produce the
overall project’s cost variance.
The formula is:
CV = EV – AC
 If CV is negative, the task is over budget.
 If CV is zero, the task is on budget.
 If CV is positive, the task is under budget.
Cost Performance Index (CPI): The Cost Performance
Index, usually abbreviated CPI, like the Cost Variance, is a
measure of the cost performance of the project.
The formula is:
CPI = EV / AC
If CPI is less than 1, the task is over budget.
If CPI is one, the task is on budget.
If CPI is greater than 1, the task is under budget.
