Answer

PERT is the project scheduling technique, which considers the probabilistic or risk factor in performing the activities. Some projects are very unique and requires unique sets of activity which are affected by uncertain environment. For such activities three types of completion time are defined: Pessimistic time: Longest duration required by activity if anything goes wrong Most likely time: A regular time time required by activity Optimistic time: Shortest duration required by activity if everything is according to plan considering accurate resource availability and time completion of the preceding activities.
