A chart that illustrates the interrelationships of tasks over time, how individual tasks or steps affect each other, and how a change in one task will affect several others. See also Gantt Chart and Critical Path Chart.
Organizational flow chart defining responsibilities, due dates and other information.
A graphical representation showing the critical path for a project applied to a calendar.
a Critical Path Method (CPM) chart considered statistically
a project management tool used to schedule, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project
a standard scheduling chart that shows work tasks as boxes
a type of chart used for project management
A chart (resembling a flow chart) in which a box represents each project task, and a line connecting two boxes represents the relationship between two tasks.
A chart that displays the sequence of tasks that form the project schedule. PERT charts are particularly useful for highlighting a project's critical path.
A specific type of project network diagram. See Program Evaluation and Review Technique.
A flowchart that shows all task s and task dependencies. Tasks are represented by boxes and task dependencies are represented by line s connecting the boxes. [D01181] MSP98 See Project Network Diagram. [D01182
A project management technique for determining how much time a project needs before it can be completed. Each activity is assigned a best, worst and most probably completion time estimate. These estimates are then used to determine the average completion time. The average times are used to calculate the critical path and the standard deviation of completion times for the whole project.
Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) is another charting technique used in project management to plan and track the progress of a project. Time is indicated as the columns of the graph, with circles representing the completion of tasks, and linking lines showing the time taken to achieve the tasks. The critical path is shown as the horizontal series of tasks.
