Whenitisused

EAC
When you want to forecast EAC based on the project manager's bottom-up ETC.
When variances are not expected to occur for the remainder of the project, so the
costs of future work are estimated to be the same as the budgeted costs.
SPI
When you want to take the cost performance of a project into account and assume its
current cost performance level won't change for the remainder of the project.
When you want to take both the schedule and cost performance of the project into
account, and the project schedule is a factor likely to impact the ETC.
