Earned value management (EVM) is the control tool used for cost control, which is one of the most important areas in project management. It also provides additional useful information for the schedule variance. When used with progress reporting to determine schedule variance and schedule performance index, EVM becomes a highly valuable tool to track both cost and schedule. Budgets for projects with only department-wide budget allocations are analogous to a household electricity bill, having few details.

Earned Value Management (EVM) is the systematic integration and measurement of technical (scope), schedule, and cost accomplishments in a project or task. EVM provides both the public and private industries the ability to examine detailed schedule information, critical program data, technical milestones, and costs. The EVM System is an integrated set of documented processes, procedures, and applications that describe how the system owner is using EVM for managing projects. An EVMS Validation Review verifies that the EVMS processes and disciplines are being used by the project team as well as producing accurate and valid EVM performance data for informed management decisions
