Abstract: Earn Value Management is a commonly used performance measuring and reporting mechanism. There are different types of construction projects exist. Some projects are rather similar, while others are completely different in characteristics. Hence the same EVM technique will not give the best results for every project and that EVM is not even appropriate for certain projects. In applying EVM to projects, there are three commonly used Standard Practices are existed in the current practice. All these standards meet their stated objectives, but are different in their approach to the subject and detail they provide.
