Schedule Variance (SV) measures the variance between the earned value (EV) and planned value (PV) at a given point in time. It provides insights into whether the project is ahead or behind schedule. A positive SV indicates that the project is ahead of schedule, while a negative SV suggests schedule delays. SV helps in monitoring schedule performance.
Calculation: SV = EV - PV
