PERT, but not CPM, has the ability to consider the precedence relationships in aproject.
The shortest of all paths through the network is the critical path.
The fundamental difference between PERT and CPM is that PERT uses the betadistribution forcrashing projects while CPM uses cost estimates.
Slack is the amount of time an activity can be delayed without delaying the entireproject.
Every network has at least one critical path.
The critical path can be determined by use of either the "forward pass" or the"backward pass."
The PERT pessimistic time estimate is an estimate of the minimum time anactivity will require.
The standard deviation of project duration is the average of the standarddeviation of all activitieson the critical path.
In PERT analysis, the identification of the critical path can be incorrect if anoncritical activitytakes substantially more than its expected time.
Shortening the project's duration by deleting unnecessary activities is called"project crashing."
In project management, crashing an activity must consider the impact on allpaths in the network.
