We're upgrading from 13.3 to 14.2 and those fields now appear in the Task Assignment options when they didn't before. I can't find anything about them in the Release Notes.

They are into Clarity for a while. Part of basic functionality. You could click 'Help' link on top-right corner and search ACWP and would find all information in your old and new environment.

For easiness these are the details:

### Earned Value Metrics

You can use the earned value (EV) fields to track work

performance to account for cost and schedule variances. Baseline information is

factored in to the calculations performed in earned value analysis. All earned

value fields contain the fundamental calculations used for earned value analysis

(EVA).The following EV values are calculated for every scheduled

activity:- BAC
Displays the system-calculated value of Budget at

Completion (BAC), which is the budgeted total cost at the time of the baseline.

This value is calculated based on the following formula:BAC = ((Actuals + Remaining Work) x Billing Rate) taken at time of baseline

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- BCWS
Displays the system-calculated value of Budgeted

Cost of Work Scheduled (BCWS). BCWS is the budgeted amount to spend on the

project in a given time period. If not specified, the date is either the current

date for the project, or the system date. BCWS is also referred to as the

planned value (PV).The BCWS is calculated based on the following

formula:BCWS = Sum of BAC through a point in time

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- ACWP
Displays the system-calculated value of Actual

Cost of Work Performed (ACWP), which is the total

direct cost incurred in performing work based on posted actuals. ACWP is calculated at the following levels:- Assignment. Actual cost is calculated as part of the

posting process for actuals based on the financial cost matrix. - Detail-task. The calculation is based on the following

formula:`ACWP = Sum of Actual Cost for all the assignments on the task`

- Summary-task. The calculation is based on the following

formula:ACWP = Sum of ACWP for all detail tasks in project

- Project. The calculation is based on the following

formula:ACWP = Sum of ACWP for all summary tasks in project

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- Assignment. Actual cost is calculated as part of the
- EAC
Displays the aggregated total for the cost of all

actuals over

time.- EAC (T)
Displays the system-calculated value of Estimate

At Completion (EAC). This calculation is most often used when current variances

are seen as typical of future variances. The calculation is based on the

following formula:`EAC (T) = ACWP + ETC`

**Current Baseline Required:**No- EAC (AT)
Displays the system-calculated value of estimate

at completion (EAC). This calculation is most often used when current variances

are seen as atypical. And the project management team expectations are that

similar variances will not occur in the future. The calculation is based on the

following formula:`EAC (AT) = (ACWP + (BAC - BCWP))`

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- ETC (AT)
Displays the system-calculated value of estimate

at completion (ETC) using earned value data. This calculation is most often used

when current variances are seen as atypical. And the project management team

expectations are that similar variances will not occur in the future. The

calculation is based on the following formula:ETC (AT) = BAC - BCWPc

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- ETC (Cost)
Displays the system-calculated value of Estimate

To Completion (ETC), and is calculated based on the following formula:ETC (Cost) = remaining labor cost + remaining non-labor cost

**Current Baseline Required:**No- ETC (T)
Displays the system-calculated value of estimate

at completion (ETC) using earned value data. This calculation is most often used

when current variances are seen as typical of future variances. This value is

calculated based on the following formula:ETC (T) = (BAC - BCWPc)/CPIc

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes

The following values are used together to determine if work is

performed as planned. The most frequently employed measures are:- CV
Displays the system-calculated value of Cost

Variance (CV). The CV is the value of what is accomplished to date as opposed to

what is spent to date. The calculation is based on the following formula:`CV = BCWP - ACWP`

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- SV
Displays the system-calculated value of Schedule

Variance (SV). The SV is the value of what is scheduled to date as opposed to

what is performed to date. A positive value indicates that the work is ahead of

the baseline schedule. A negative value indicates that the work is behind the

baseline schedule. The calculation is based on the following formula:SV = BCWP - BCWS

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- CPI
Displays the system-calculated value of Cost

Performance Index (CPI), which is an efficiency rating for work accomplished. A

value equal to or greater than one indicates a favorable condition. A value less

than one indicate an unfavorable condition. The calculation is based on the

following formula:`CPI = BCWP / ACWP`

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes- SPI
Displays the system-calculated value of Schedule

Performance Index (SPI), which is the ratio of work performed to work scheduled.

A value less than one indicate the work is behind schedule. The calculation is

based on the following formula:SPI = BCWP / BCWS

**Current Baseline Required:**Yes
