What are the BCWS, BCWP, ACWP, SV, CV, EAC, BAC

i want this file in ms project 2016

We setup a baseline plan.  Now some time has pass since the project started, it’s time to check on the progress, make any adjustment to our plan, and take necessary measures to keep our project on track.  The methods we use to analyze project progress and to detect problems are called EVA – earned value analysis.  As a follow-up, Task 4 starts with the baseline file we created.


To reduce the scope of the assignment, we only enter the actuals for the activities under the first summary task (initiating).  Assume that tasks 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 were all completed on schedule.  But task 5 was finished three days later than scheduled.  Do an earned value analysis for the activities under initiating. 



Answer the following questions[1]:

Q2.1.1.  What are the BCWS, BCWP, ACWP, SV, CV, EAC, BAC, CPI and SPI for task 5?  Briefly explain what do those numbers mean?

Q2.1.2.  What are the BCWS, BCWP, ACWP, SV, CV, EAC, BAC, CPI and SPI for the summary task (initiating)?  Briefly explain what do those numbers mean?

PPT file: your team is ready to demonstrate how you perform this task using the ppt file.


[1] Note: BCWS (budgeted cost of work scheduled), BCWP (budgeted cost of work performed), ACWP (actual cost of work performed), SV (schedule variance), CV (cost variance), EAC (estimate at completion), BAC (budget at completion; baseline cost), CPI (cost performance index), SPI (schedule performance index).  Use the MS Project Help facility to better understand what these metrics mean, how they are computed and how to interpret them. 



MMIS 660 – Systems Analysis and DesignGroup Assignment 1 – Project PlanningIMPORTANT DATESDue:September 26, 2016OVERVIEWThe purpose of this assignment is to introduce you and have you practice the tools and techniques forproject planning. This assignment covers the functions that project managers use the most, includingproject scope, time management, cost management, baseline plan, project tracking, control.CASE BACKGROUNDAs the head of information systems at Nova Southeastern University, you have been assigned the task ofdeveloping a new student registration system. The university wants to use a web-based 3-tier system toreplace its legacy system that was developed based on mainframe technology. The new system will allowstudents to register for courses and view report cards online.Professors will be able to access the systemto sign up courses that they wish to teach as well as to record student grades.In September 2016, projectorganizations were formed to develop the new system.In this assignment, we’ll focus on a small projectteam that was assigned to design and implement the new system.The starting date of the project was set on 9/26/16.The project was roughly divided into Fve taskcategories:Initiating Tasks:This category consists of necessary tasks to start the project including: initialmeeting with project sponsor, research similar projects, draft project requirements, develop aproject charter.Planning tasks:This category includes all planning tasks: develop WBS (work breakdownstructure), determine task relationships, estimate task duration, assign resources, enter costinformation, review Gantt and PERT charts, and review plan with stakeholders.Executing tasks:This category includes tasks in a typical software development cycle: analysis,design and implementation.Controlling tasks:This category includes the following tasks: status reports, enter actual projectperformance, review reports, and “adjust plan, if needed”.The task “Status reports” is speciFed asa recurring task (i.e., a status report meeting would be held every Wednesday with duration of 1hour).Closing tasks:The following tasks are involved in this category: prepare Fnal project report,present the report to stakeholders, and prepare lessons learned.Table 1 provides a description of the 30 tasks that were initially speciFed in the project’s scope deFnitionstage.Table 1 – Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)#Tasks#Tasks (Cont’d)1Start Project16Review plan with stakeholders2Initiating tasks17Executing tasks3Initial meeting with project sponsor18Analysis tasks4Research similar projects19Design tasks5Draft project requirements20Implementation tasks6Review with sponsor and otherstakeholders21Controlling tasks7Develop project charter22Status reports8Charter signed23Enter actuals9Planning tasks24Review reports10Develop WBS25Adjust plan, if needed11Estimate task duration26Closing tasks12Assign resources27Prepare Fnal project report13Determine task relationships28Present Fnal project to stakeholders14Enter cost information29Prepare lessons learned15Review Gantt and PERT chart information30End ProjectNote:Task 22 (Status Reports) will later be changed to a recurring task.Page 1 of 5
