As a result, the performance measures (SPI and SV) are calculated on the level of the project based on the three key indicators (PV, AC and EV) that are calculated per reporting period as the sum over all the individual activities (which can be easily done since they are expressed in monetary units). In chapter 4, a simulation study has been set up to measure the potential error of this project level based performance measuring approach on the accuracy of forecasting measuring to predict a project’s final duration.
