Earned Value Management (EVM) System describes the core processes that are required for the effective use of Earned Value Analysis (EVA). It is a project performance measurement technique which is widely adopted by the construction industries of USA, UK, Australia and South Korea. However, its application as project control technique is not very common in Malaysia. In this paper, EVM System was applied on a construction of railway track project in peninsula Malaysia. This is a government funded project of worth RM 12.485 billion and awarded in December 2007 on design and build basis. This project will be completed in 2013. The case study includes contractor scope of work; schedule charts; physical progress reports; budgeted and actual cost reports. The aim of this case study is to practically demonstrate that how Earned Value Management (EVM) System can be applied on Malaysian construction projects. This will facilitate the project practitioners to the further use of EVA for the schedule and cost control of their construction projects.
