What is PERT Chart?

Project Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT Chart) is a project management tool used to schedule, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project. It is basically a method to analyze the tasks involved in completing a given project, especially the time needed to complete each task, and to identify the minimum time needed to complete the total project. PERT planning involves steps include: Identify the specific activities and milestones; determine the proper sequence of the activities; construct a network diagram; estimate the time required for each activity; determine the critical path; and update the PERT chart as the project progresses.

PERT Chart and Time Schedule

Four definitions for the time schedule we are expected to obtain from a PERT Chart:

  • Optimistic Time - the least amount of time to accomplish a task or activity
  • Pessimistic Time - the maximum amount of time to accomplish a task or activity
  • Most Likely Time - is the best estimate of how long it will take to accomplish the task or activity, assuming there are no problems
  • Expected Time - the best estimate of how long it will take to accomplish the task or activity, assuming there will be problems
