PERT Networks PERT Networks In PERT the duration of any activity is indeterministic. It bases the duration of an activity on three estimates: Optimistic Time, a Most Likely Time, m Pessimistic Time, b

The range [a, b] is assumed to enclose all possible estimates of the duration of an activity. Based on these estimates, the average time, f8e5 D, and variance , ν , are computed as follows: 6 4 b m a D + + = 2 6 - = a b ν CPM calculations given earlier will be applied directly, with f8e5 D replacing the single estimate D.
Consider the network with the estimates of the activities given below:
