How To Make A Project Network Diagram (Free Tools & Examples Included)

Project management is good at making complex projects simple by using project management tools such as project network diagrams. A network diagram is a visual representation of the workflow of a project, populated with boxes noting tasks and responsibilities, and arrows that map the schedule and the sequence that the work must be completed. Project managers use a network diagram to track the project schedule network, allowing them to see the progress of each activity and share the status with the rest of the team. This is especially helpful for those who better understand information delivered visually. Project network diagrams are used to help project managers estimate the duration of the project and create a project schedule.

They are divided into two types, the arrow diagram method (ADM) and the precedence diagram method (PDM). The arrow diagramming method uses arrows to represent project activities, with the tail of the arrow being its start and the point the finish. The precedence diagram method uses nodes or boxes that are milestone symbols of the start and finish of the activity in sequence. There are four types of task dependencies: finish to start, start to start, finish to finish, and start to finish.
