Ok, let's try to understand this..

PDM is used to create schedule and sequencing activities, putting its dependencies and coming up with schedule network diagram. This is a perquisite to really go deeper and apply CPM to determine minimum project duration.

This is the reason PDM is a T&T for sequence activity process whereas CPM is a T&T for develop schedule. Without network diagram (using PDM as technique) we can't calculate critical path of the project and eventually can't estimate minimum project duration
