Compute the SPI, Schedule variance and Percent complete for the situation given below.

Assume you are a software project Manager and that you have been asked to compute earned
value statistics for a small software project. The project has 56 planned work tasks that are
estimated to require 582 persons-days to complete. At the time that you have been asked to do
the earned v alue analysis. 5 tasks have been completed. However the project schedule indicates
th at 8 tasks should have been completed. The following schedule data (in person-days) are

(Hint: SPI = BCWP / BCWS

P erson Complete = BCWP / BAC
BAC = ∑ (BCWS  k) for all tasks k


W hereBCWP = Budgeted Cost of Work Performed, BCWS = Budgeted Cost of Work

Scheduled, BAC = Budget at Completion)
