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]
The PERT chart is one of the Seven Management and Planning Tools (7 MP tools, Seven New Quality Tools).
The PERT chart template for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is included in the solution "Seven Management and Planning Tools" from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This vector stencils library contains 47 SysML activity diagram symbols.
Use it to design your SysML activity diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Activity diagrams are constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected with arrows. The most important shape types:
- rounded rectangles represent actions;
- diamonds represent decisions;
- bars represent the start (split) or end (join) of concurrent activities;
- a black circle represents the start (initial state) of the workflow;
- an encircled black circle represents the end (final state).
Arrows run from the start towards the end and represent the order in which activities happen." [Activity diagram. Wikipedia]

How to Create an IDEF0 Diagram for an Application Development

IDEF0 methods are intended to model the functions of a process, creating a graphical model that displays: what controls the function, who makes it, what resources are used and how they are connected with other functions. The IDEF0 tool is used to model the decisions, actions, and activities of a software system during the development process . IDEF0 diagram graphically depicts a model of a desired version of the application. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to create and communicate the IDEF0 diagrams of any complexity.

How to Create a BPMN Diagram Using ConceptDraw PRO

Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a method of illustrating business processes in the form of a diagram. The most effective method of creating or analyzing a business process is to visually interpret the steps using a business process diagram, flowchart or workflow. This is known as business process modeling, and will be performed within a company by a team who have detailed knowledge of company process, and analysts with expertise in the modeling discipline. The objective is often to increase production or lower costs — by modeling the process initially using a flowchart, inefficiencies and problems can be spotted before committing to a decision or strategy. You can create BPMN diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming tools. ConceptDraw have designed a solution that combines BPMN v2.0 methodology and graphical notification into one powerful package. The Business Process Diagrams solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park provides a comprehensive collection of vector

"A purchase order (PO) is a commercial document and first official offer issued by a buyer to a seller, indicating types, quantities, and agreed prices for products or services. Acceptance of a purchase order by a seller forms a contract between the buyer and seller, so no contract exists until the purchase order is accepted. It is used to control the purchasing of products and services from external suppliers.
Creating a purchase order is typically the first step of the purchase to pay process in an ERP system." [Purchase order. Wikipedia]
