Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

PERT Diagram is a more realistic approach of a project's time estimate analysis. After PERT chart was constructed user can discover the shortest possible duration for entire project timescale. The project timeline is the longest chain that might be taken with connected tasks on the PERT Diagram. Completion of serial tasks need to be accomplished in a presented order. At a project timeline can be independent tasks that not linked with main sequence they are called parallel tasks. PERT diagram is more suitable for Critical Path Analysis than Gantt chart for the reason that it undoubtedly better determine task dependencies. Project managers customarily utilize both methodologies.

ConceptDraw PROJECT Software Overview

ConceptDraw PROJECT is an effective tool for new and experienced users with a fine balance of usability and powerful functionality.
"Project planning is part of project management, which relates to the use of schedules such as Gantt charts to plan and subsequently report progress within the project environment.
Initially, the project scope is defined and the appropriate methods for completing the project are determined. Following this step, the durations for the various tasks necessary to complete the work are listed and grouped into a work breakdown structure. Project planning is often used to organize different areas of a project, including project plans, work loads and the management of teams and individuals. The logical dependencies between tasks are defined using an activity network diagram that enables identification of the critical path. Float or slack time in the schedule can be calculated using project management software. Then the necessary resources can be estimated and costs for each activity can be allocated to each resource, giving the total project cost. At this stage, the project schedule may be optimized to achieve the appropriate balance between resource usage and project duration to comply with the project objectives. Once established and agreed, the project schedule becomes what is known as the baseline schedule. Progress will be measured against the baseline schedule throughout the life of the project. Analyzing progress compared to the baseline schedule is known as earned value management.
The inputs of the project planning phase include the project charter and the concept proposal. The outputs of the project planning phase include the project requirements, the project schedule, and the project management plan." [Project planning. Wikipedia]
