Earned Value Management (EVM) for Construction

When it comes to cost and schedule on your construction projects, do you know where you’re at and where you’re going? Realizing that you’re aimed at an iceberg when you’re 100 meters away isn’t helpful. It’s so much better if you notice the iceberg when you’re 10 kilometers away, so that you can do something about it! This is part of the “construction management” that owners expect from contractors.

Construction project management is a challenge in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Successful project managers demand that their projects meet the contracted scope of work and be completed on schedule and within budget.


Earned Value Management (EVM) is a project planning and control approach which provides cost and schedule performance measurements. It compares actual accomplishment of scheduled work and associated cost against a baseline schedule and budget plan. Its benefits include projections of anticipated project schedule, and cost trends, and the ability to take timely corrective actions for undesired variances. EVM is one of the most powerful and productive concepts used in managing today's complex projects in private, commercial, and government environments.

The fundamentals of EVM will be presented in a down-to-earth, basic approach, along with hands-on exercises and examples that will allow participants to apply the concepts.


Participants will:
  • Obtain basic knowledge in understanding and using an effective performance management system in managing construction projectseffectively
  • Detect both positive and negative trends in a timelymanner
  • Forecast the Projected Final Cost (Estimate at Completion) using severaltechniques
  • Confidently and quickly make project decisions concerning scope, cost, andschedule
  • Learn to avoid the project-management pitfalls by identifying and mitigatingrisks
Who should attend?

Anyone whose work involves planning and progressing the work: Project Managers, Project Coordinators, Construction Managers, Superintendents, General Foremen, and Estimators of all levels will benefit from the workshop. This course is for Owners, Consultants, Contractors and Sub-Contractors in all segments of the Construction Industry.
