Difference Between CPM AND PERT
1.
 
PERT
was developed by the US Navy for the planning and control of the Polarismissile program and the emphasis was on completing the program in the shortest possible time
CPM
was developed by Du Pont and the emphasis was on the trade-off between thecost of the project and its overall completion time2
.
 
PERT
considers optimistic, likely and pessimistic time, thereby adding an element of  probability to the final figure one obtains
.
 
CPM
takes only a single time for any task 
.
This time typically would be the 'likely'time for the task 
.
 3
.
 
PERT
is a probabilistic tool using 3 estimates of duration for completion of activitiesof a project and is basically a tool for planning and control of time
.
 Whereas,
CPM
is a deterministic tool, with only single estimate of duration
.
 CPM also allows an explicit estimate of costs in addition to time, thereby CPMcan control both time and costs
.
 4
.
 
PERT
is more suitable for R&D related projects where the project is performed for the first time and the estimate of duration are uncertain
.
 
CPM
is best suited for routine and those projects where time and cost estimates can be accurately calculated
.
 5
.
 
PERT
is event oriented
CPM i
s activity oriented i
.
e
.
CPM network is built on the basis of activitiesAlso result Of Carious calculation are considered in terms of activities of the project
