Performance-Based Earned Value
Comparison of Deficiencies in ANSI-748 (EVMS Standard) compared with
Dept. of Defense Instruction 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System
ANSI-748 does not meet the needs of DoDI 5000.02, with regard to the above deficiencies.

188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 Product scope description
This documents the characteristics of the product that the project will be undertaken to create.
Progressively elaborates the characteristics of the product, service or result described in the project charter
and requirements documentation.
220.127.116.11 Requirements Documentation
Requirements baseline; unambiguous (measurable and testable), traceable, complete, consistent, and
acceptable to key stakeholders.
18.104.22.168 Requirements Management Plan
How requirements activities will be planned, tracked, and reported
Product metrics that will be used
Traceability structure to reflect which requirements attributes will be captured on the traceability matrix
22.214.171.124 Requirements Traceability Matrix (RTM)
Grid that links product requirements from their origin to the deliverables that satisfy them. It provides a
means to track requirements throughout the project life cycle.
Includes tracing requirements for:
Project scope/WBS objectives
Test strategy and test scenarios
High-level requirements to more detailed requirements
Attributes associated with each requirement can be recorded in the RTM. Typical attributes used in the RTM
may include current status (such as active, cancelled deferred, added, approved, completed), and
In the project context, the term scope can refer to:
126.96.36.199 WBS Dictionary
May include quality requirements, acceptance criteria
5.5 Validate Scope
Process of formalizing acceptance for the completed product deliverables.
5.6 Control Scope
Completion of the product scope is measured against the product requirements.
188.8.131.52 Work Performance data
Contains measurements for technical performance.
11 Project Risk Management
Conduct risk management planning, identification, qualitative risk analysis, quantitative risk analysis,
response planning, response implementation, and monitoring risk
184.108.40.206 Project Management Plan Updates
Schedule baseline. Changes in the schedule baseline are incorporated in response to approved changes
in schedule estimates that may arise from agreed-upon risk responses.
Cost baseline. Changes in the cost baseline are incorporated in response to approved changes in cost
estimates that may arise from agreed-upon risk responses.
220.127.116.11 Data Analysis
TPM compares technical accomplishments during project execution to the schedule of technical
achievement. It requires definition of objective quantifiable measures of technical performance which can
be used to compare actual results against targets. Such TPMs may include weight, transaction times,
number of delivered defects, storage capacity, etc.
