Earned Value
Period 2
In period 2, the project has a  Scheduled Performance Index (SPI) of 1.5 and 1.333 and a Cost Performance Index (CPI) of 1.2 and 1.33 for activity A and B respectively.  Since the project has an SPI that is greater than 1 in all activities, then it is ahead of schedule in these activities. The positive CPI in both periods indicates that the project is below the budgeted in these activities. The positive cost variance in all activities indicates that the project is under budget for these activities. On the scheduled variance (SV) activity, A and B have a SV of 5 and 4 respectively. These positive figures indicate that they are ahead of schedule. Activity A and B have a CV of 5 and 4 respectively. These positive figures indicate that the costs are below the budget.
Period 4
The project has a SPI of 1, 1.33,0, 0, and 0 for activity A, B, C, D, and E respectively. Activity B is ahead of schedule since it has an SPI that is more than 1. Activity A is operating within the required schedule since it has an SPI of 1. Activity C, D, and E are behind schedule since they are below 1. Activity A, B, C, and E have a CPI that is greater than 1, which indicates that the costs incurred by each activity is below the budget. Activity D has a CPI of 0, which indicates that its expenditures are more than the budget. Activity B, C, and E have a SV that is more than 0 which indicates they are ahead of schedule. Activity A and D have an SV of 0, which indicates that they are operating on the required schedule. Activity A, B, C, and E have CV that are greater than 0, which indicates that they have costs that are below the budget. Activity D has a CV of 0, which shows that the project is operating on budget.
Period 6
In this period, the SPI is 1, 1, 1.5, 0, and 1.75 for activity A, B, C, D, and E. Activity A and B are on schedule since they have an SPI of 1. Activity D has an SPI that is below 1, which indicates that it is behind schedule. Activity C and E have an SPI greater than 1, which indicates they are ahead of schedule. Activity D has a SPI of 0 which indicates that it is on schedule. Activity A, B, C, and E have a CPI that is greater than 1, which indicates that they have costs that are below the budget. Activity D has a CPI of 0 which indicates that it is within the budget.  Activity A and B have an SV of 0, which indicates that they are on schedule. Activity C and E have an SV that is greater than 0, which indicates that they are ahead of schedule. Activity D has an SV that is less than 0, which indicates it is behind schedule. Activity A, B, C, and E have CV that is greater than 1, which indicates that they have costs that are less than the budget. Activity D has a CV that is greater than 0 , which shows that they within the budget. Activity D has a CV of 0, which indicates that it is within budget.
Period 8
Activity A, B, C, and E have a CPI that is greater than 1, which indicates that they are under budget. Activity D has a CPI that is less than 1, which shows that it is over budget. Activity A, B, C, and E have a SPI of 1, which shows that they are ahead of. Activity D has an SPI that is less than 1, which shows that it is behind schedule. Activity A, B, C, and E have an SV of 0, which indicates that they are on schedule. Activity D has an SV that is less than 0, which indicates that it is behind schedule. Activity A, B, C, and E have a CV greater than 0, which indicates that they are below budget. Activity D has a CV that is less than 0 which indicates that the activity is over budget.
On overall, period 2 has a SPI of 1.43, which indicates that the activities are ahead of schedule. The CPI are 1.243, which shows that the activities are below budget. In period 4, the SPI is 1.90 which shows that the activities are ahead of schedule. The CPI is 1.3, which shows that the activities are below schedule. In period 6, the SPI is 1.109, which shows that the activity is ahead of schedule. The CPI is 1.311, which shows that the activities are under budget. In period, the SPI is 1, which shows that the project is completed on time. The CPI is 1.2, which indicates that the costs are below the budget. The PCI-B of period 2 is 0.2233, which shows that 22.33% of material is used at this stage. In period 4, the PCI-B is 0.5922, which shows that 59.22% of materials are used by this stage. In period 6, the PCI-B is 0.5922, which shows that 59% of materials are used by this stage. In period 8, the PCI-B is 0.767, which indicates that 76.7% of materials have been used up by this stage. The Estimated cost of completion (EAC) is 354, the total earned value for is 448 and the cost variance at completions (VAC), 148. {EAC- Total Earned Value= VAC}. This figure indicates there is a cost saving at this stage.
