Projects are unique sets of operations designed to achieve certain objectives, within a given time limit. For many projects, this time involved is long and the associated costs are significantly high, there are sometimes hundreds and even thousands of activities that must be planned and coordinated in order for the project to be completed on time with specified cost and specified quality standards. This work deals with the development of a project management methodology using the PERT tool and the validation of the model through application in an As-Built project of a 33-foot Ecomariner fiberglass boat. Initially, the productive system was characterized and the activities of the project were identified. In sequence, the times and resources for the activities were estimated, and after the relationships were identified, dependencies between the activities, thus, the network diagram was created (PERT). There were constraints of time and resources in the project, being necessary to adjust the network diagram (PERT) after that it was calculated the risk that the project takes longer than a specified time T, and finally the activity Gantt diagram is generated. The application of the proposed model was able to meet the objective and can be applied in the nautical /naval industry.
