FAQs

PERT diagrams, or Project Evaluation Review Technique charts, are a visual representation of a project’s interdependent tasks along the predetermined project timeline. A simple PERT chart breaks projects into individual tasks with connective lines to show the order and relationship between steps. Each nodule in a PERT diagram maker shows the start date and the expected time of its represented task, with nodules arranged in sequential order.

Project managers use this visual tool as an overview of the team’s tasks and schedule. FigJam’s PERT chart template incorporates both the timeline and individual steps of your project into a shareable image that’s comprehensive and easy to follow. Get to know your project’s flow and adhere to deadlines with this diagram to guide the whole team.

You can find FigJam’s PERT chart online and start using it immediately. To begin, bring the team together to build out your PERT template following these steps:

1. Discuss and establish project milestones and tasks.

2. Note the dependencies between different tasks or goals.

3. Plug individual tasks and schedules into FigJam’s PERT chart generator.

4. Come to a consensus on a project timeline based on your diagram.

Both PERT and Gantt charts are useful project management tools that feature individual tasks along their timeline. A Gantt chart has individual tasks on the y-axis and time on the x-axis, with horizontal bars depicting the expected time for each task; alternatively, a PERT diagram example allows for a more freeform, adjustable project flow along the timeline and has dependent and non-dependent tasks branching out from central tasks.

Compared to a Gantt chart, this extra insight affords project managers the chance to predict bottlenecks and understand the importance of completing each task by its stated deadline.
