EVM Implementation in Construction
Mr. Akbar 123
I am interested to know about EVM implementation in a construction company. Projects like a group of buildings, towers or town houses, etc.

Mr. Akbar. I was a general contractor for 25 years and used EVM very effectively to manage my construction projects.

EVM Implementation

I am ending a conceptual proof of concept about using EVM method for engineering project management at a large Brazilian Engineering company with several projects here in Brazil and abroad.
We decided by a time phased approach where we can: (1) proof of concept, demonstrate how the company can benefit with evm in their projects, the issues that need to be addressed, the process design demand, cultural changes, operational behavior and additional efforts, sizing a real project to be deployed at corporative level in a second stage.
This way sounds better for companies that are not used to work with advanced methods of engineering project management like evm.
My expertise starts in 1986 and since that time I was exposed to +500 projects in Brazil and 39 projects in 12 countries.
I am a Microsoft partner for several years and highly experienced with Microsoft enteprise project management, audit leader (5 years bvc) and eia 748 compliance.
I can consider your demand for February if you need.

@Adriano A. Barbosa: I think you are going to find MSP does not do a good job with earned value.
There seems to be something "wrong" or "strange" in the algorithms MSP uses.
What we do, is dump the early and late date bcws data into Excel and generate the ev reports from Excel.

Paul, we don't have bad experiences with Microsoft Project related to quality of results and calculus method. However, if you have and can point it, please, let me know about as we can report to Microsoft and ask for some solution. You can also report direct to them via:
Else, feel free to contact me.
