The Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB) is an important tool in earned value management used by Program Managers and Systems Engineers in the Technical Assessment Process to appraise a program’s technical progress. It includes the undistributed budget, all summary level planning package budgets, and all control account budgets but does not include management reserve. It establishes the contract level timed phased baseline against which contract level earned value metrics are computed. It establishes the scope, schedule, and budget targets for the program. The Integrated Baseline Review (IBR) establishes the PMB.
