Earned Value Analysis - % work completed after status date RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't understand why MS projects doesn't include the % completed work after status date. 
    When a task is completed (or more % completed then planned) it will only calculate the costs based on the % completed until the status date.
    Can someone please explain this?

  • Hi,

    This is directly due to the definition of the status date: this is the date on which you're doing your status. So in the best practice, you cannot have any actuals after the status date, thus no %complete. And if you do have, it means that your status date must be pushed forward.

    Hope this helps,
