Need help with a question: Why it is called early termination of project

Post-mortem analysis after scheduled finish date of a project shows a CPI of 0.8 and an SPI of 1.25. What is a plausible explanation for that?

o The project was terminated early. At that time, it was over budget and ahead of schedule.

o The project has produced additional deliverables which were originally not required.

o The project has evidently been finished under budget and behind of schedule.

o The project has evidently been finished over budget and ahead of schedule.

 

The answer is 1 How do we know  that project was terminated earlier and not been finished. 

 

Thanks

You can search on PMZilla.

post mortem implies that something you want to investiagte about. So here you are trying to investiage the reason for early closure/termination of the project.  CPI and SPI does not add any valuse excepting providing status at the time of project closure.

I guess you don't need any technical know-how to actually answer it. It is indeed a thing they need to get themselves into. - Marla Ahlgrimm

The termination of the project is coming. It really is sad to know that it will come to an end. - Steven C Wyer
