Earned Baseline Days

Also known as Earned Schedule

The Earned Baseline Days calculation takes the Actual Percent complete reported by the latest schedule update and tells you how many calendar days your project should have earned based on the Baseline Schedule. 

In this example, Update 1 shows the project as 25% Complete on Day 10. In comparison, the Baseline was scheduled to be 25% complete on Day 5. Therefore, the Earned Baseline Days is 5.

This is an important metric to watch, especially around billings. In the above example, it would be essential to understand the amount of actual time spent on-site vs the amount of time it should have been based on the amount of work achieved.
