ok, I did some checking for you, and talk to a few other PMPs I work with. The consensus was PMI would mostly have Burn Rate = 1 / CPI

The formula what you are using to calculate the burn rate seems to different one than that of what I have seen in one the math article which was published in https://www.resumesservicesreviews.com/ writing service blog. I was little confused when I see your formula and the one what I know through that article which one is right one.

## Burn Rate

Burn rate = AC/EV

Burn Rate=1/CPI

Where CPI is cost performance index.

A project was assessed and the following Earned value data have been found: PV: $750,000 EV: $750,000 AC: $900,000 What is the

Burn rateof the project?o 1.20

o 1.10

o 1.00

o 0.83

Burn Rate =900,000/750,00=1.2

## CPI

in that question the burn rate is .83 Oliver is wrong. You get what you pay for I guess. I only used prep question I paid for.

## EVM

Doesn't matter, What matters is what the earn value formulas are, what they mean and when to apply each.

## ok but, if the exam ask what

ok but, if the exam ask what is the burn rate.. you are in trouble..

I am wondering if burn rate is EV/ac or AC/ev

## ok but be carefull here

ok but be carefull here

You said Burn Rate = 1/CPI and AC/EV is'int correct

This is the same thing !! 1/CPI or AC/EV = SAME !

EX:

AC = 5

EV = 6

CPI = 6/5 = 1,2

1/CPI OR 1 / 1,2 = 0,8333

AC/EV OR 5/6 = 0,8333

SO burn Rate is NOT CPI, BURN Rate is like Lehman says AC/EV OR 1/CPIjwhelan

## burn rate is the inverse of the CPI

Yes, Burn rate is not CPI, it is the inverse of CPI. Lehman is correct

## The formula what you are

The formula what you are using to calculate the burn rate seems to different one than that of what I have seen in one the math article which was published in https://www.resumesservicesreviews.com/ writing service blog. I was little confused when I see your formula and the one what I know through that article which one is right one.
