CV = EV - AC CPI = EV / AC SV = EV - PV SPI = EV / PV EAC ‘no variances’ = BAC / CPI EAC ‘fundamentally flawed’ = AC + ETC EAC ‘atypical’ = AC + BAC - EV EAC ‘typical’ = AC + ((BAC - EV) / CPI) ETC = EAC - AC ETC ‘atypical’ = BAC - EV ETC ‘typical’ = (BAC - EV) / CPI ETC ‘flawed’ = new estimate Percent Complete = EV / BAC * 100 VAC = BAC - EAC EV = % complete * BAC
Average (Mean) = Sum of all members divided by the number of items. Median = Arrange values from lowest value to highest. Pick the middle one. If there is an even number of values, calculate the mean of the two middle values. Mode = Find the value in a data set that occurs most often.
1 sigma = 68.26% 2 sigma = 95.46% 3 sigma = 99.73% 6 sigma = 99.99% Control Limits = 3 sigma from mean Control Specifications = Defined by customer; looser than the control limits Order ...view middle of the document...
Select biggest number. ROI = Formula not required. Select biggest number. IRR = Formula not required. Select biggest number. Payback Period = Add up the projected cash inflow minus expenses until you reach the initial investment. BCR = Benefit / Cost CBR = Cost / Benefit Opportunity Cost = The value of the project not chosen.
Communication Channels = n * (n-1) / 2
EMV = Probability * Impact in currency
PTA = ((Ceiling Price - Target Price) / Buyer's Share Ratio) + Target Cost
Straight-line Depreciation: Depr. Expense = Asset Cost / Useful Life Depr. Rate = 100% / Useful Life Double Declining Balance Method: Depr. Rate = 2 * (100% / Useful Life) Depr. Expense = Depreciation Rate * Book Value at Beginning of Year Book Value = Book Value at beginning of year - Depreciation Expense Sum-of-Years' Digits Method: Sum of digits = Useful Life + (Useful Life - 1) + (Useful Life - 2) + etc. Depr. rate = fraction of years left and sum of the digits (i.e. 4/15th)
