Current Status of Project:
(In this section, you want to provide details regarding the current status. Tell whether or not the project is on or behind schedule, over or under budget. If there are variances, tell why they exist. What has gone wrong? What is going right? Provide the EVM data here, including CV, CPI, SV, & SPI. Explain what these values mean. Provide a brief analysis of what has happened in the project so that the reader understands why the variances exist, specifically.)
Forecast Future Performance:

(Because this is a sample project file, you have limited information, but based on your analysis, tell us what areas of the project are of concern. Is cost or time a concern in these areas? Does the scope need be considered? What are some possible solutions for cost and schedule related problems that might be applicable?)
(If relevant to your calculations and analysis, provide supporting data in the final section of the report as an appendix.)
