Earned Value Management (EVM) is an integrated management control and reporting system used to measure and report the performance of a project. It combines scope, cost and schedule information into a single integrated system. It enables project managers to measure actual progress against planned progress and to predict the final cost and outcome of the project. It is a project management tool that measures progress in terms of completed work (the Value Earned), that is, the value of deliverables accepted by the customer or end-user. EVM provides an early warning system of potential cost and schedule overruns and helps make decisions concerning corrective actions.
