  • CONFIDENCE Ekeh Nigeria PERT diagram or network diagram is a flowchart that illustrates how your activities are going, it is also your project test laboratory . it gives you a chance to try out different plans before you start off with the project unlike gantt chart which does not give useful information unless the include all of the activities needed for the project

  • Rita Musoke United Kingdom It is important to keep tags of every activity in action/ progress that is taking place within the process of building up a project. Both charts(GANTT & PERT) all play a role of its own in helping monitor every activity that is set out from beggining to the end with duration time scale in place.

    • Peter Cummins Australia I don't know why, but I find PERT charts harder to use than GANTT charts. Perhaps if I worked on a really really complex project, I would see the utility of PERT charts. But the projects I have worked on were simple enough for me to keep track of the critical path without needing an actual PERT chart.

  • Shoon Aung Myanmar If we don't need to relate different tasks, what kind of problems can badly occur?
    2015-02-03 06:02:26

  • Shoon Aung Myanmar How can managers manage to relate the tasks with same urgency status?
    2015-02-03 06:02:17

  • Shoon Aung Myanmar Since PERT diagrams can show the relationship between tasks rather than progress of tasks, manager can study and consider how to smooth the work flow and which can delay the work speed.
