- Activities that have a large cost estimate. Why?

Cost variance = Cumulative earned value Cumulative actual cost
What does it mean when cost variance is positive? What does it mean when cost variance is negative? When evaluating a work package with a negative cost variance, what two types of activities should you focus on? Why?
