Your project is over budget and behind schedule-monitoring & controlling - cost managementthis is an evm question. the amount spent is the actual cost (ac). the work completed of 30% is the same as earned value (ev). the work you were supposed to complete of 40% is the planned value (pv). to answer this question you simply need to calculate cost variance (cv) and schedule variance (sv). cv = ev - ac or $180,000 - $250,000 = ($70,000), which means your project is over budget. sv = ev - pv or $180,000 - $240,000 = ($60,000), which means your project is behind schedule.
