Schedule Delay Analysis - Choosing a Method & Why do They Deliver Different Results

2 Professional Development Hours

There have always been debates and arguments over which schedule delay analysis method is “the best method” to be used.

Hundreds of articles have been published going back to the late 1960’s. Which method is best is still a wide open issue among schedulers, claim consultants, construction managers, contractors, and attorneys. The level of debate has increased in recent years since AACE International published their Recommended Practice – Forensic Schedule Analysis (RP25R-03).

What has not been widely discussed or written about is what factors should go into the decision-making process when choosing a delay analysis method for a particular project or a specific claim. Also, not often discussed is why different methods yield different results despite using the same project records and documents.

Learning Benefits:
All too many in the construction industry practitioners contend that schedule delay analysis is subject to entirely too much judgment on the part of the delay analyst. Many consider delay analysis unreliable and inaccurate. The purpose of this webinar is to set forth what delay analysts and construction attorneys need to consider when selecting a forensic scheduling methodology and why these factors are so important to the initial choice of method. Additionally, the webinar will clearly explain why different methods, relying on the same project records, can end up with different conclusions. This results not from excessive judgment on the part of the analyst, but rather from the way the various forensic schedule methods operate. 

Why You Should Attend: Attend this 2-hour webinar to get answers to pressing questions, such as:

  • What is a forensic schedule analysis?
  • What types of schedule delay analysis exist, and how do they differ?
  • How do you choose a schedule delay analysis method?
  • What factors and issues should be addressed before committing to a potentially lengthy and expensive process?
  • Is the choice of delay analysis methods irrevocable once made?
  • What is the risk of trying to change methods in mid-stream?
  • Why do different delay analysis methods yield different results?

The presenters will provide answers and insights concerning these issues and highlight the 11 factors a forensic scheduler should consider when making a choice.
