About PERT Chart Diagram and PERT Method.

About PERT Chart Diagram and PERT Method. | Free Logistics | Scoop.it

The PERT method –acronym of Program Evaluation and Review Technique-, is a project management tool which allows managing coordination within a project. The output is a network model of tasks and links of a given project.

This network also called PERT chart allows to identify the critical path of a project and thus to focus the project’s efforts on critical tasks. The critical path is the chain of tasks which total duration is the project’s longest.

Invented in the end of the 1950s by the US Navy to coordinate tasks of POLARIS project (realization of nuclear warheads missiles), this method allowed to coordinate several thousand subcontractors, reducing costs and lead-time.

PERT is a very effective project management tool that helps to schedule, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project. PERT stands for Program Evaluation and Review Technique. A PERT chart presents a graphic illustration of a project as a network diagram consisting of numbered nodes (either circles or rectangles) representing events, or milestones in the project linked by labelled vectors (directional lines) representing tasks in the project. The direction of the arrows on the lines indicates the sequence of tasks. Following six steps are involved in PERT planning process:

  • Identify the specific activities and milestones
  • Determine the proper sequence of activities
  • Construct a network diagram
  • Estimate the time requried for each activity
  • Determine the critical path
  • Update the PERT chart as the project progresses


Use the pre-designed Keynote PERT template at http://www.muezart.com/editable-keynote-mac-pert-diagram.html to reduce time and cost involved in the completion of a project.
