PERT chart - Project management plan

"A project network is a graph (flow chart) depicting the sequence in which a project's terminal elements are to be completed by showing terminal elements and their dependencies.
... the project network shows the "before-after" relations.
The most popular form of project network is activity on node, the other one is activity on arrow.
The condition for a valid project network is that it doesn't contain any circular references." [Project network. Wikipedia]

Visual diagrams gives the ability to view at a detailed level project attributes such as project scope, logical connections in the project, critical paths, key events on the timeline, milestones, tasks, calendars for work, and resource utilization. Read more
The PERT chart shows the logical connections and consequence of a set of tasks. PERT charts the time period for problem solving and the implementation plan for all activities along the critical path. The PERT chart is also known as a precedence diagram or project network diagram.
"The Program (or Project) Evaluation and Review Technique, commonly abbreviated PERT, is a statistical tool, used in project management, that is designed to analyze and represent the tasks involved in completing a given project. ...
PERT is a method to analyze the involved tasks 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 was developed primarily to simplify the planning and scheduling of large and complex projects. ...
A network diagram can be created by hand or by using diagram software. There are two types of network diagrams, activity on arrow (AOA) and activity on node (AON). Activity on node diagrams are generally easier to create and interpret." [Program Evaluation and Review Technique. Wikipedia]

How To Create a PERT Chart

Project Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) is a method of project tasks evaluation and analysis. PERT - is a method of analyzing the tasks required to complete the project. It includes analysis of the time required to complete each task, as well as the determination of the time required to carry out the whole project. PERT was developed to facilitate the planning of huge and complex projects. PERT is used for very large, complex, and non-standard projects. Technology implies the presence of uncertainty, making it possible to develop a schedule of the project without a precise information on details and time required for all of its components. The most popular part of PERT is a method of the critical path, based on the construction of the network schedule (PERT network diagram). ConceptDraw Office delivers you the best way to create PERT chart for your project using compatibility between ConceptDraw PROJECT and ConceptDraw PRO. Read more
