Apportioned Efforts hold direct supportive relationship to a discrete activity and can be measured in direct proportionate to a discrete effort. Due to the direct proportion relationship with discrete activity, apportioned efforts may not readily divisible from work packages. If the activity is painting the wall , doing verification and validation of the painting will be considered as apportioned efforts

Use of the apportioned effort earned value technique (EVT), when applicable, reduces the time required to assess earned value since it is automatically calculated based on the pre-established proportion to the discrete effort. The analysis of any variance attributable to the discrete work becomes the analysis for the apportioned effort as well. If more inspection were required because of the need for additional items to be produced in the prime work package, that serves as the variance rationale for inspection as well.
