What is a PERT Chart?

The PERT chart is used in the program evaluation and review technique (PERT) to represent the timeline of a project and break down individual tasks. It helps project managers to accurately estimate the duration of a project by analyzing the sequence of tasks. PERT charts are widely used in various industries, including construction, engineering, software development, and manufacturing, among others.

How to Create a PERT Chart Collaboratively in Creately?

  1. Open a Creately workspace and add your project team as collaborators. Using a brainstorming tool like a mind map or post-it notes, identify the project milestones and break them down into individual tasks.

  2. Establish the dependencies between the tasks, i.e. which tasks must be completed before others can begin. This will help to identify the critical path of the project.

  3. Estimate the duration of each task, taking into account factors such as resources and complexity.

  4. Start drawing your PERT chart by connecting the identified tasks to one another. You can start with a premade Creately PERT chart template or create one from scratch by enabling the relevant shape library.

  5. Estimate your overall project time frame using the critical path method (CPM) and the PERT formula. Once the estimated time per task has been calculated, add each of the estimates of the critical path together to generate an average project timeline.

  6. Review the PERT chart and refine it as necessary. Make sure that the tasks are arranged in the correct order and that the chart is easy to read and understand. Update the PERT chart frequently throughout the project as changes occur. You can track changes with version history and revert back at any time.

  7. Share the PERT chart with other project stakeholders or export it to a variety of file formats if needed.

FAQs about PERT Charts

What is the difference between a Gantt chart and a PERT chart?
A Gantt chart consists of a series of bars representing tasks on a timeline. The PERT chart displays project tasks in boxes and links them with arrows to outline their dependencies.
Who typically uses a PERT chart?
The PERT chart is used by project managers to create realistic schedules by coordinating tasks and estimating their duration by assigning optimistic, most likely, and pessimistic estimates. As a result, PERT charts are useful when planning projects where the duration of activities is uncertain.
Can I share my PERT chart?
PERT charts can be shared in a number of ways with Creately’s PERT chart software. You can share your Creately workspace with other team members so they can edit, review, or comment on it. Your diagram can also be imported as a PDF, PNG, JPEG, or SVG for easy publishing, embedding, or sharing. You can also embed it securely in any intranet or website using an emed link.
