Earned Value
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

Mathematical Basics
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.

Values
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 of Magnitude estimate = -25% to +75% Preliminary estimate = -15% to + 50% Budget estimate = -10% to +25% Definitive estimate = -5% to +10% Final estimate = 0% Float on the critical path = 0 days Pareto Diagram = 80/20 Time a PM spends communicating = 90% Crashing a project = Crash least expensive tasks on critical path. JIT inventory = 0% (or very close to 0%.) Minus 100 = (100) or -100

Network Diagram
Activity Duration = EF - ES + 1 or Activity Duration = LF - LS + 1 Total Float = LS - ES or Total Float = LF – EF Free Float = ES of Following - ES of Present - DUR of Present EF = ES + duration - 1 ES = EF of predecessor + 1 LF = LS of successor - 1 LS = LF - duration + 1

...- Politeness formulas in Arabic:
When talking about politeness formulas in Arabic and in English and how they are different, it is crucial to take into account the distinction between propositional content of a formula and its illocutionary force potential. A good example showing the relationship between semantic content or propositional content and illocutionary force illustrates in using congratulations in English and “shukran” in Arabic...

...benefits of different types of formula that are commonly available
Breast milk is a natural form of baby food which is perfect for a baby. But there are some people who for different reasons can’t breastfeed, or have chosen not to, formula milk is the next best thing.
Scientists and medical experts have spent years developing high-quality formula milks that will provide babies with the specific nutrition that they need.
There are many...

...The Euler’s Formula
Euler’s formula and Identity: eix = cos(x) + i(sin(x))
The world of math today is one with endless possibilities. It expands into many different and interesting topics, often being incorporated into our everyday lives. Today, I will talk about one of these topics; the most mind-blowing and fascinating formula invented, called the “Euler’s formula”. This formula was created and introduced by...

...Breastfeeding vs. Formula
Deciding whether to breastfeed or provide formula milk is a major decision amongst new mothers. As simple as it may seem, the decision to breastfeed versus formula feed babies can be difficult and one of the most important decisions a mother can make. While there is nothing wrong with giving babies formula milk, breastfeeding should be the number one choice for mothers. As breast milk provides more...
