In this podcast, Ricardo talks about the indices of earned value in the project. He explains that the great secret of earned value is to evaluate current performance to project the future. Ricardo also explains how to analyze the rate of time or cost when it is less than, equal to or greater than one.
In this podcast, Ricardo talks about the methods of forecasting project schedule and cost. He comments that there are four methods of predicting future project performance: time series methods, causal/econometrics methods, judgmental methods and other methods. Ricardo explains and gives examples of each method.
In this podcast Ricardo discuss the critical success factors of the use of earned value in projects. He presents the main areas where everybody must pay attention while using the technique and also approaches the relevance of the proper understanding of the concepts behind the numbers and how important is the project planning in order to use the EVMS.
In this podcast Ricardo discuss the importance of TCPI (To Complete Performance Index) to evaluate the possibility of cost recovery in the project. The TCPI is the complement of CPI (Cost Performance Index) and allows the evaluation of the future financial conversion rate for the project in order to accomplish the final project budget.
The objective of this paper is to present the main components of the development of a project team, the motivational characteristics inherent to the team work and an interrelation proposal between the earned value analysis and team development through the SPI and CPI indexes
The aim of this article is to present a proposal of interconnection between models and probabilistic simulations of project as possible ways to determine EAC (Final cost) through Earned Value Analysis.
