When memorizing the formulas I have found it best to look for patterns. When I see the correct pattern I know the formula is correct. AC = ACWP PV = BCWS EV = BCWP

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Ok lets build this. First is to see the pattern of 2 subtractions, 3 divides, 2 subtractions

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Next see the pattern of Variance and Index. Cost, Schedule and Cost, Schedule.

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Next see the pattern of Earned Value (EV). This used to be BCWP.

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Next see the pattern of Actual Cost (AC) and Planned Value (PV) and how they alternate. Skip a line and its AC again.

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Next see the pattern of Estimated at Completion (EAC). As well as Budget at Completion (BAC)

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

Not much left. Notice that CPI is divisor of EAC so find CPI skip a line and place it at the end of EAC formula. ETC and VAC dont really match to anything, you just have to know where they go.

BAC /

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

AC
EAC

Formula Memorization Trick CV SV = = EV EV EV EV / / AC PV AC PV CPI

CPI = SPI = EAC =

BAC /

This may look confusing but it worked great for me and I have had others tell me it worked for them as well.

ETC =
VAC =

EAC BAC -

Pert Mean: (Pessimistic + 4*Most Likely + Optimistic) / 6

Standard Deviation: (Pessimistic Optimistic) / 6


Variance: ((Pessimistic Optimistic) / 6) squared Present Value or PV: Future Value / (1+ rate of return) to the power of n. Where n = periods of time.
