Description - Performance-Based Earned Value by Paul Solomon
Performance-Based Earned Value shows how to improve an organizations EVM practices within the framework and guidance in the following capability models and standards: Standard for Application and Management of the Systems Engineering Process (IEEE 1220-1998); Processes for Engineering a System (EIA-632); Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI); and Practical Software and Systems Measurement: A Foundation for Objective Project Management (PSM). Clear and unambiguous instructions show how to integrate EVM with key SE processes such as Requirements Management, Measurement and Product Quality Assurance and how to correlate TPM with EVM. The book also explains how to link product requirements, project work products, the project plan and PBEV and shows how to manage project risks by integrating EVM with Risk Management and TPM in accordance with the project management standard, PMBOK. It includes the fundamentals of EVM for those using EVM for the first time or preparing for the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) examination.
