traditional EVM data analysis. (It also does traditional analysis.)

EIA 748 Gap Analysis & Surveillance

Surveillance Review can
show you where your project or organization may short of the EIA 748 EVMS requirements. This gap analysis can also validate your internal gap
analysis to make sure you are working smart to meet close the real gaps.
A Surveillance Review can show you where you may fall short of meeting
EIA 748 so you can fix it before your customer finds the shortfall.
EVM Process Engineering
process engineering to assist in implementing EVM or
improving EVM to meet EIA 748, the US mandated standard for EVM on
federal projects. We start with what you have in place already. An EVMS that uses existing scheduling systems and

the data paths for EVM that can help guide the purchase of more
sophisticated, and more costly, EVM support products. For many
organizations it is their ultimate EVM tool.
The Earned Value Management Maturity
In 2005 we created The
Earned Value Management Maturity Model®
(Published by Management Concepts) to create a five level EVM
maturity scale. EIA 748 is Level III. Level IV and V define Key Process
Indicators for organizations who see to improve the accuracy, timeliness,
and efficiency of their EIA 748 EVMS. Level II might be sufficient for
non-EIA 748 EVM needs.
