In this chapter we examine some scheduling tedijt niques that have been found to be useful in project management. We cover th^ Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT), the Critical Path Method (CPMjj Gantt charts, and briefly discuss Precedence Diagramming, the Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT), and report-based methods.

We also look at ways of expediting activities adding resources. Following a discussion of the monitoring and information syste function in Chapter 10, we discuss the overall topic of project control in Chapter 11
