  • Abstract

    For organizations using Earned Value Management (EVM) or that plan to implement EVM during Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) implementation, this technical note provides guidance for cost-effective process improvement and appraisal. Mapping and comparison tables between CMMI and the U.S. national standard on EVM are provided. These tables can be used to identify practices within CMMI that are not included in the EVM standard but, if added to an organization's processes, will strengthen adherence to EVM principles. The tables also can be used to develop instruments that will provide evidence to an appraisal team to enable it to quickly verify and validate specific practices based upon effective implementation of EVM.  

    Furthermore, information such as glossary components, typical work products, and examples are included in this technical note to aid those using CMMI for process improvement. For organizations using technical performance measurement, a primary base measure for earned value, additional guidance and information is provided. Finally, additional references and an EVM glossary are provided.
