Rethinking Earned Value in Construction: A Digital Transformation

June 28, 2023

In the complex world of construction, understanding the value earned at any given point in a project is crucial. This is particularly true for large and complex construction projects where project managers, superintendents, and senior executives like VPs of large contractors and owner operators need to have a clear understanding of project progress against the budget. 

Earned value is typically calculated by comparing the percentage of the total budget that has been spent at a given point in time to the percentage of the project that has been completed. This provides a clear, quantifiable measure of project performance and can help identify potential issues before they become significant problems.

The Challenges of Earned Value in Construction

However, calculating earned value in construction can often be a complex and challenging task. The underlying data or assumptions about the data can often be incorrect or unreliable, making it difficult to accurately calculate earned value. This can lead to inaccurate assessments of project performance, potentially resulting in cost overruns and delays.
