13 June 2022 – Almaty, Kazakhstan – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to Earned Value Management (EVM). The new resource titled “A fuzzy approach for the Earned Value Management” is a paper by Leila Moslemi Naeni, Shahram Shadrokh and Amir Salehipour published in the International Journal of Project Management in 2014.

The authors presented a new fuzzy-based earned value model with the advantage of developing and analyzing earned value indices, and the time and the cost estimates at completion under uncertainty. The application of the proposed method arises in situations where the total amount of the work required to perform the activities are unknown or uncertain, and is out of control.

Developed fuzzy-based model measures the earned value indices and estimates. The main task for authors was to interpret fuzzy-based EV indices to have an inference regarding project progress and its status.

During the research the authors present an example that illustrates the basis of the new fuzzy-based EV calculations; this example is a medical research project. To keep the example simple enough to be understand easily by readers, the authors’ example deals only with the activities of one work package (while in research there are four work packages presented).
