    CPM (Critical Path Method) is used to assist the project manager in scheduling the activities (i.e., when should each activity start). It assumes that activity durations are known with certainty.
    PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique) is used to assist in project scheduling similar to CPM.

    CPM is a technique that is used in projects that have predictable activities and tasks such as in construction projects. It allows project planners to decide which aspect of the project to reduce or increase when a trade-off is needed. It is a deterministic tool and provides an estimate of the cost and the amount of time to spend in order to complete the project. It allows planners to control both the time and cost of the project.
    PERT, on the other hand, is used in projects that have unpredictable tasks and activities such as in research and development projects. It utilizes three estimates of the time to complete the project: the most probable, the most promising, and the most unfavorable.
    It is a probabilistic tool using several estimates to determine the timely completion of the project and to control the activities involved in the project so that it will be completed faster and at a lower cost.

    CPM is a statistical technique of project management in which planning, scheduling, organising, coordination and control of well-defined activities take place. PERT is a technique of planning and control of time. Unlike CPM, which is a method to control costs and time. A deterministic model is used in CPM.
