Schedule performance index (SPI)
- A project has a budgeted cost of £120,000.
- According to the schedule, 15% of the project should have been completed after one month (planned value). That is £120,000 x 15 / 100 = £18,000.
- But after a month, only 12% of the project has actually been completed (earned value). That is £120,000 x 12 / 100 = £14,400.
SPI = EV / PV = 14,400 / 18,000 = 0.8
If the ratio has a value higher than 1 this indicates the project is progressing well against the schedule. If the SPI is 1, then the project is progressing exactly as planned. If the SPI is less than 1 then the project is running behind schedule.
