Which of the two components are underperforming
according to the plan? How do you know this?
• Technical Infrastructure is both behind schedule and over budget as
indicated by the SPI (94.4%), Control Ratio (< .9) and CPI (91.7%)

Are the components of the project within budget?
How do you know?
• Software is within budget, technical is over budget by $85,410 based on
EAC.

What can you conclude by looking at the combined
earned value data for the project?
• The projects when combined appear on track to be completed $64k under
budget and 6 days early
• Viewing as a consolidate projected can distort the true picture. Using this
view Terry Baker would easily been led to believe the projects were on
budget and on time.
What should Martin have done earlier in the project
timeline to prevent delays?
• Reporting Earned Value and reviewing critical path project
tasks independently of the project as a whole, Martin would
have visibility to these problems earlier.
• With earlier visibility shifting resources from Software to
Technical Infrastructure may have been possible.
What should Martin do when managing future
projects to prevent similar problems from developing?
• Tighter monitoring and control of project
• Enhanced communication plan
• Dedicated Staff (full review of any resource constraints and
changes)
• Order Hardware Earlier
• Begin testing Earlier
• Setup system access security up front
