    2014-08-21 20:08:03

    • George Fragos Greece One of the key differences between a PERT chart and a Gantt chart is the way the information is presented. Gantt charts present information in the format of a bar chart. This presentation helps show the percentage of work completed for each task. PERT, on the other hand, displays information as a network model. This means that a PERT chart presents an initial node from which tasks branch out. This helps project managers visualize the sequence of tasks, as you cannot start on the next activity until the one preceding it is completed.
