We draw and discuss three curves used to manage projects. The first is the budget, over time. The second is the actual cost curve, and the third is the earned value curve, i.e. the budgeted cost of the work performed. The relationship between these three curves will tell a project manger whether the project is over or under budget, and whether it is ahead or behind, and by how much.
