Value has been used since the 1960’s by the Department of Defense as a
central part of the C/SCSC (Cost/Schedule Control Systems Criteria).
Recently, the DOD revised the 35 criteria contained in the C/SCSC and
produced the 32 criteria for EVMS (Earned Value Management Systems).
These criteria have since been accepted by the American National
Standards Institute/Electronic Industry Association as a new standard,
called ANSI/EIA 748. Now, EVM is being used in a wider variety of
government contracts, and is spreading through the private sector as a
valuable tool for project managers.
