If you are using Earned Value, you can create an S Curve that shows your planned value across time. As you add actuals and take earnings, you can show the AC curve and EV curve and compare it visually with the PV curve, as well as calculate your indices.
If you are not doing Earned Value, is there way to create similar curves using Work values instead in MS Project?
The project is an IV&V type effort where the vendor is contracted firm fixed price. As such, true dollar values will not be known to the IV&V vendor. Only schedule data is visible. The schedule is baselined and they are capturing work percent complete as their method and finish variance is known.
Thanks for the help. Julie??
