After a new management technique has been in use for some time, a body of critical literature appears which serves as a catalyst to the refinement and increased application of the technique. In the case of the PERT system such a collection of introspective documentation has been slow in coming. The present paper was prepared with the hope that it will contribute to the evolutionary development and use of the PERT technique.
