GDB Announcement Dated:Jul 25, 17

Dear Students,

The activity of Graded Discussion Board (GDB) will be open on August 2, 2017. Students will be able to post their comments for 48 hours only.


GDB Topic:

Let suppose you are the project manager of ABC software Development Company. The company is going to launch a project which aims to build an administration software for the management, monitoring and billing of the telecommunication services. The background is that the customer, a consortium of large companies, intends to use its network infrastructure for public telecommunication services. This involves a lot of new functionality about which the customer and development team has nearly no prior experiences.

PERT (Program or Project Evaluation and Review Technique) and CPM (Critical Path Method) are specialized project management techniques and scheduling tools that allow managers to plan, manage and control complex tasks and projects.

Being a project manager which of the above mentioned techniques (PERT or CPM) you will use? Justify your answer with solid arguments.


Try to provide precise and to the point comments avoiding irrelevant details. 
For any query, please send your emails at  CS615@vu.edu.pk.

being a project  manager i will use pert(project evaluation and review technique) as pert is used where the nature of job is non repetitive. pert is a technique of planning and control of time. pert deals with un predictable activities. pert is best for research and development projects. pert technique is suited for high precision time estimate. pert uses probabilistic model.


PERT is an acronym for Program (Project) Evaluation and Review Technique, in which planning, scheduling, organising, coordinating and controlling of uncertain activities take place. The technique studies and represents the tasks undertaken to complete a project, to identify the least time for completing a task and the minimum time required to complete the whole project. It was developed in the late 1950s. It is aimed to reduce the time and cost of the project.

PERT uses time as a variable which represents the planned resource application along with performance specification. In this technique, first of all, the project is divided into activities and events. After that proper sequence is ascertained, and a network is constructed. After that time needed in each activity is calculated and the critical path (longest path connecting all the events) is determined.
