Activity Network Chart (PERT)

Activity Network and Review Technique and Project Evaluation, 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.

This diagram identifies and builds the schedule of actions.

This diagram is constructed as part of the process in creating a schedule of corrective actions. The PERT chart shows the logical connections and consequence of tasks to be performed. It displays the time period for problem solving and the implementation of all activities through the critical path.

Typical Uses

This comprehensive solution set is intended for managers in any size company, who are looking for tools to address issue management. The 7 MP solution is intended for business consultants, trainers and coaches to assist in visualization of different problem solving methodologies.

Best Practices

Create the PERT chart to work with action order, and rework actions to reduce critical path length.

  • Start new schedule document - In ConceptDraw PROJECT create new schedule document.
  • Enter actions in the schedule - Enter actions in the schedule, set start and finish dates, and logical links between actions.
  • Create PERT chart - Use plugin “PERT chart” to generate PERT chart in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Example.1 Activity Network Chart (PERT) — Sales

A PERT Chart gives you a timeline for an entire process. The critical path on this example is highlighted in red.

The Seven Management and Planning Tools solution permit you to explore the complexity of the problem, to create a detailed view, and to assess the number of skills that are required. Using a small number of factors develops a detailed understanding of a problem’s complexity and helps build a proven demand for resources (human, material, or otherwise). This lets you explain the involvement of participants who are critical for overall success
