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.
