Indicator “Schedule performance”

The Schedule performance index (Schedule Performance Index, short: SPI) indicator shows you whether the activity is on schedule or takes longer to complete. For the value to be calculated, the activity must be started, have a planned effort, and the current date must not be before the activity starts.

Calculation formula
Schedule Performance = Earned value/ Planned effort

This results in a value that you interpret as follows:

SPI = 1 You are exactly on schedule.
SPI > 1 You are working faster than planned.
SPI < 1 You are working slower than planned.

You create the indicator in the dashboard

  • within a group by clicking on the plus button, selecting Create new indicator and selecting Schedule performance in the subsequent dialog under Indicator type.
