ANSI 748 Gap Analysis & Surveillance

Surveillance Review can

EVMS requirements. This gap analysis can also validate your internal gap
analysis to make sure you are working smart to meet close the real gaps.
A Surveillance Review can show you where you may fall short of meeting
ANSI 748 so you can fix it before your customer finds the shortfall.

EVM Proposal Support
Writing a proposal is a stressful exercise with short timeframes,
limited resources, and customer demands. If EVM is a required proposal

OBS, WBS, EVMS, scheduling and finance systems can work in harmony to
produce accurate and timely EVM data. If not, needless expense and

Ez-EVM family of MS Excel based workbooks can provide a EVM
solution without the expense of specialized training, sys administrators, and
per seat license fees. This product quickly provides an EVM capability
and helps train the workforce on EVM principles. It also helps define
the data paths for EVM that can help guide the purchase of more
sophisticated, and more costly, EVM support products. For many
organizations it is their ultimate EVM product.
The Earned Value Management Maturity
In 2005 we created The
Earned Value Management Maturity Model®
(Published by Management Concepts) to create a five level EVM
maturity scale. ANSI 748 is Level III. Level IV and V define Key Process
Indicators for organizations who see to improve the accuracy, timeliness,
and efficiency of their ANSI 748 EVMS. Level II might be sufficient for
non-ANSI 748 EVM needs.
The on-line 90 minute
CAM^EXAM™ is available
to individuals or organizations to determine if CAMs or potential CAMs
have the knowledge commonly expected of CAMs in an ANSI 748 EVMS
environment. The CAM^EXAM can also be used by trainers to determine if
CAM training was effective or used as time saver by performing
pre-interview screening prior to CAM interviews.
