The Application of Improved Earned Value Model in Engineering Quality and Progress Coordination Management
Schedule, cost, and quality are three main elements to describe the situation of a project’s execution. The improved model, which is based on the tradition EV model, quotes the definition of quality cost and combines the cost, progress and quality, then forms the quality earned value system and the coordinate coefficient of quality and progress. The developed model and the coordinate coefficient, which are on basis of quality cost, make up the deficiencies of traditional EV in terms of quality management. They provide a new method to describe and analyze the situation of the project’s execution systemic, scientific and exactly.
