      I think
      http://blog.gdinwiddie.com/2010/04/22/projecting-into-the-future/ will
      help. If you've got any questions after reading that, ask away.

      BTW, the traditional EV calculations make the assumption that value
      received is equal to the cost expended. It must make that assumption,
      because in a traditional all-or-nothing project, there is no value
      actually received until the end. When value is received throughout the
      project, you can see that this assumption is not warranted.
