Earned Value Management (EVM) is a program management technique that integrates technical performance requirements, resource planning, and schedules, while taking risk into consideration. The major objectives of applying earned value are to encourage use of effective technical, cost, and schedule management control systems, and to permit the customer to rely on timely data produced by those systems for better management insight. In addition, EVM allows better and more effective management decision making to minimize adverse impacts to the project.  

Earned value provides an objective measurement of how much work has been accomplished on a project. Using the earned value process, the management team can readily compare how much work has actually been completed against the amount of work planned to be accomplished.
