Calculating Earned Value on just a portion of a schedule RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've looked  - but haven't found a way to apply a process that will allow me to calculate EV on different portions of a schedule (i.e. by phase or task type) - without having to export the data manually to excel and then apply the EV formulas in that application to get my EV.    Does anyone know of a way to do this completely within MS Project?   We are using MS Project Server 2010.   Thanks!!

    To the best of my knowledge, I believe that Earned Value is calculated for the entire project up through the Status Date you set, but you can see the Earned Value field values for every individual task.  Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for the reply Dale - I am wondering if there is an add-on for Project or Server that would allow this sort of EV measure to be calculated.    In short, there is a set of identical tasks (each set is a phase )  that is applied to accomplish a goal for every county in the state of CA and they want some EV measurements by county (or in this case - phase).    I'm just not seeing that happeneing without splitting the counties out into separate schedules.    Do you know of any EV add-ons that we might be able to employ?   ~RK

    Navigate to our Microsoft Project MVP site at the following URL:
     
     
    Press Control + F to bring up the Find window and then enter Earned Value.  This will show you the add-on tools available for EVA.  Hope this helps.
