Abstract: The subject of “EVM Lite,” typically meaning which EVM guidelines are necessary for effective project management, is a common topic. Are the EVM guidelines too restrictive or costly to implement? There are several guidelines the author is aware of that are recognized by governments including the ANSI-EIA 748, which was used as the basis for this paper. The premise of the paper is that effective EVM is more a matter of degree of implementation rather than the need of omitting particular guidelines.
