Key Performance Indicators based on Earned Value Analysis / Management

Just had some ideas from class tonight regarding Earned Value Analysis (EVA). If you’re unfamiliar with EVA google it and you’ll find it is basically a way to measure a projects performance. Microsoft has a small ‘about’ page found here that might help as well –

The three key elements of EVA are:

  1. Budgeted Cost of Work Scheduled
  2. Actual Cost of Work Performed
  3. Budgeted Cost of Work Performed

These are the ‘Measures’ of the project. The Key Performance Indicators you can derive based on these measures are:

  1. Cost Variance
  2. Schedule Variance

Sounds just like a dashboard right? Anyone interested in coming up with a PerformancePoint dashboard with these metrics based on Visual Studio Team Foundation Server? I know I am…
