Abstract : In noticing a need to generalize PERT, Freeman deserves credit for having proposed that engineers and system planners take cognizance of technical performance and scarce resources as well as time. To this end, he attempted to show, without proof, that it is possible to find an optimal combination of time, technical performance level and resources for any project. The notation he developed has been retained by this paper wherever possible.
