Earned Value not being updated

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Earned Value not being updated

    Posted 04-08-2018 11:28 AM

    I have a project which is already base lined.For some reason the Earned value (BCWP) is not getting update. I also see that in the table prj_ev_history, the ITD_BCWP values is not getting updated. It shows 0.

    The EV calculation method is Percentage competition and % Complete Calculation is set to Manual.




    I ran the following jobs as well,

    1) Update Earned Value and Cost Totals
    2) Update Earned Value History


    Still no luck. 


    I am missing something. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    Hi Aleem,


    I think Earned Value Management (EVM) requires following components.

    Did you setup them?

    - Entity

    - Datamart

    - Entity Fiscal Time Periods

    - Rate Matrix

    - Earned Value Reporting Period


    And you will need to set "Labor Transaction Matrix" in Project/Properties/Settings.

    I would like to know one thing. As you are saying that the project is created and also baseline has been done already, so could you please confirm if any of these steps are done by XOG? I meant was either of the project or the baseline(s) were created using XOG?


    Also, please let me know if you have tried using the action "Update Baseline" for the affected baseline. If not, please try the same and see if the problem Earned Value gets updated or not.


    Hope that helps. Thanks.

    Hi AEC-CA ,


    Can you execute "Rate Matrix" Job and try EV Job again?

    Sorry guys, my bad. I totally forgot that the %complete should be entered at the tasks level. Earned value is the sum of BCWP for all WBS Level 1 tasks in the project.

    I was actually updating the %complete at project level and running the earned value jobs. 

    My issue is fixed.
