Performance Information Gathering and Compilation
Information can be gathered and compiled from a variety of
media including manual filing systems that allow access to technical
documentation, such as engineering drawings, design specifications and test
plans, to produce forecasts as well as performance, status and progress
Status Review Meetings
To collect performance information and exchange project
information, status review meetings are regularly scheduled events in the
project. On most projects, status review meetings will be held at various
frequencies and on different levels. For example, the project management team
can meet weekly by itself and monthly with the customer.

comparison of baseline with actual performance on an S-curve provides an
excellent graphical view of the project progress.
Cost Reporting Systems
Cost reporting systems record and provide the cost expended
for the project. CV and CPI parameters are measured as part of EV Analysis.
