Project management requires some financial savvy. Project cost management involves cost estimates, vendor bid analysis, and determining realistic budgets and then keeping them on track. While terms like cost aggregation and baseline, reserve analysis, and earned value management (EVM) are initially daunting, with some background and work, these tasks and tools can be understood and mastered. In this course, you'll learn to the basics of creating budgets and estimating and controlling costs. You'll explore cost forecasts, estimating using methods like estimate to complete (ETC), estimate at completion (EAC), cost performance index, and bottom-up and analogous estimating.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Discover the key concepts covered in this course
    Distinguish between the tools and techniques you can use to estimate project costs
    Describe how to use the bottom-up estimating technique to estimate project costs
    Recognize the tools and techniques you can use to determine your project budget
    Recognize the tools and techniques you can use to control project costs
    Match earned value management values with their formulas
    Recognize the situations in which different estimate at completion (eac) formulas are used
    Calculate the to-complete performance index (tcpi) for a project given earned value management (evm) figures
  • Calculate the planned value and earned value, given the budget, percent of time passed, and percent of work completed
    Calculate the schedule variance and schedule performance index, given the earned value and planned value
    Calculate the cost variance and cost performance index, given the earned value and actual costs
    Determine project performance, given a set of raw data points
    Utilize work performance data to determine project performance
    Determine the estimate at completion, using the formulas for scenarios 1 and 2
    Recognize how the choice of eac formula depends on the project situation
