This is a PERT chart that is used to estimate the project timeframe. A PERT chart is a project management tool that shows the timeline of a project graphically. The project's individual tasks are separated into categories for examination using the Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT). Using a PERT chart, a project manager can examine a project's tasks and determine how long it will take to accomplish each task. With EdrawMax, you can easily create a PERT chart.
