What is ADM, CPM, and PDM?

I (think) I know what CPM is (Critical Path Method), but what is ADM and PDM? Please feel free to explain what CPM is if it doesn't stand for Critical Path method.

You're right, CPM stands for Critical Path Method.

ADM and PDM are actually derived from CPM, and they stand for "Arrow Diagramming Method" and "Precedence Diagramming Method" respectively.

Yes, ADM has the times on the arrows, like driving between cities, or milestones.  PDM, which I prefer, has the times in the boxes, and the arrows take no time at all, they just tell you what comes next.
