  • Ralph Webster South Africa PERT diagrams or critical path networks use a graphical form to show relationships between activities and time frames. It is driven by software usually . It used to be done manually . Extremely useful to define the nodes, activities and network events and the timelines on the project. It provides the bones of the project.

    • George Fragos Greece PERT breaks down the project into events and activities, and lays down their proper sequence, relationships, and duration in the form of a network. Lines connecting the events are called paths, and the longest path resulting from connecting all events is called the critical path. The length (duration) of the critical path is the duration of the project, and any delay occurring along it delays the whole project. PERT is a scheduling tool, and does not help in finding the best or the shortest way to complete a project.

  • Je Rouse United Kingdom is the PERT method better than GANNT or does which one you use depend on the type of project that you are delivering?
    2014-08-07 15:08:34

    • Robert Robert Nigeria PERT chart is a technique for scheduling a project based on individual tasks or activities whereas Gantt Chart is a bar chart that represents the tasks and activities of the project schedule.

    • Yai Deng Yai South Sudan Both depend on each other.
      2014-08-24 12:08:35
    • Glen Holmes Ireland It isn't really a case of which one is better. In a lot of projects you would tend to use both. Gannt charts are great to see how much or what parts of the project are complete, on the other hand Pert diagrams are great to actively see the next stages of a project. Particularly when one part of a project cannot go ahead on till another is completed. Hope that helped.

  • Samuel Kofi Odoi Ghana I suggest PERT is more advance than GANTT, but can both be used at the same time?
    2014-07-26 05:07:57

    • Yai Deng Yai South Sudan I think so, yes they can both be used during project implementation period at the same time or alternating them.
