Earned Value Chart

The Earned Value chart displays earned value over time. The chart uses the Value, End date and Status fields on an activity. You may only set a Value on Requirement, Milestone or User story activities.

The chart displays:

  • Earned Value - Cumulated value of completed activities.
  • Planned Value - Cumulated value of all activities in the selected project.
  • Baseline Value - Cumulated value of all activities in the baseline of the the selected project, if there is a baseline.

Note that the Baseline Value line uses the current value not the value from the baseline.
