Estimate at Completion (EAC) is the current expectation of total cost at the end of a project. The EAC represents the final project cost given the costs incurred to date and the expected costs to complete the project. EAC is the expected spend where BAC (budget at completion) is the authorized spend on a project.

## What EAC means?

The two forecasts utilized are the **estimate at completion** (EAC) – how much the project is forecasted to cost overall – and the estimate to complete (ETC) – how much funding is required to complete the remaining work.

## What is EAC project finance?

**Equivalent annual cost** (EAC) is the annual cost of owning, operating, and maintaining an asset over its entire life. EAC is often used by firms for capital budgeting decisions, as it allows a company to compare the cost-effectiveness of various assets that have unequal lifespans.

## What is BAC and EAC?

**BAC = Budget at Completion**. **EAC = Estimate at Completion**.

## What is EAC and Vac in project management?

Summary. Variance at completion (VAC) is a comparison of the original budget at completion (BAC) and the **revised forecast** (EAC). A negative VAC is an indicator that the project may exceed the BAC.

## How is EAC calculated?

**EAC = BAC/CPI**

(Estimate at Completion equals Budget at Completion divided by Cost Performance Index).

## How do I find EAC?

**EAC Calculation Categories**

- EAC = AC + Bottom-up ETC. This formula is used when the original estimation is fundamentally flawed. …
- EAC =BAC/Cumulative CPI. This formula is used when the original estimation is met without any deviation. …
- EAC = AC + (BAC – EV) …
- EAC = AC + [BAC – EV / (Cumulative CPI x Cumulative SPI)]

## What is the first step in the EAC process?

The first step is **to create time-phased estimates for your project**. Most projects are performed over long periods of time, and resources will change depending on the project phase…as will direct costs. So understanding how you will accomplish the work period by period will play directly into your EAC.

## How does Tcpi calculate EAC?

The TCPI is computed by **dividing the budget remaining**, which is represented by subtracting the cumulative Actual Cost Work Performed (ACWP) from the target EAC, into the budgeted cost of work remaining, which is represented by subtracting the cumulative Budgeted Cost Work Performed (BCWP) from the Budget at Completion …

## What is BAC in earned value?

**Budget at Completion** (BAC) is a measure that is often used in earned value management to track the actual cost of a project against its forecasted budget. It is calculated at the start of a project based on the project work and its individual components.

## How EAC is calculated in a delivery metrics?

You can calculate Estimate at Completion by **dividing the Budget at Completion by the Cost Performance Index**. If the CPI = 1, then EAC = BAC. This means you can complete your project with your approved budget analysis.
