Professional Flowcharting
PERT, CPM, and WBS Charts
These diagrams can be downloaded and edited. It is often easier to modify an existing diagram than to draw a new one. 

If you don't have RFFlow installed already, download the free trial version. Then you can open the samples on this page directly in RFFlow by clicking on the .flo file links below. From there you can zoom in, edit, and print the sample chart.

Two stencils were used to create these charts:
Pert, CPM, CPA Charts
Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

PERT stands for Program Evaluation and Review Technique. The numbered circles represent tasks or milestones in a project. The arrows show the sequence of these tasks. The time to do a task is shown near the arrow. The critical path in the chart at the left is drawn with red arrows. PERT charts display task dependencies, showing which tasks need to be done before others can be started.

PERT charts are also called Critical Path Management (CPM) or Critical Path Analysis (CPA) charts. The PERT chart on the left places the time to do a task, starting date, and ending date inside the task box. The horizontal axis has time in months and the vertical axis shows who will be doing the work.
