  1. PMP Solution 72

    Reserve analysis is used to determine the amount of contingency and management reserve needed for the project. On the other hand, variance analysis reviews the differences between planned and actual performance. This can include duration estimates, cost estimates, resources utilization, resources rates, technical performance, and other metrics. Finally, trend analysis is used to forecast future performance based on past results. The results of trend analysis can be used to recommend preventive actions if necessary. Therefore, A is the correct choice. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 111, 263] [Project Cost Management]
