Executing on-time, on-budget construction projects has never been riskier, and as projects experience delays, it is essential to all parties to have a good understanding of practical methods to analyze and support delay claims. This presentation will provide information about what data an analyst needs to perform a good schedule analysis, the different methods of analysis that are available, and how to pick the method that is best for your project. This session will provide a brief description of each and explain what is the best method to utilize.

In this webinar expert speaker Scott A. Beisler and Patrick M. Kelly, will provide more detailed and review about the two most popular analysis methods: the Contemporaneous Period Analysis (commonly called “Windows”) and the As-Planned vs. As-Built analysis.

  • Necessary Prerequisites: Good Critical Path Method (CPM) Schedules and supporting contemporaneous documentation.

  • Choosing an Analysis Method: Picking the best method for your project.
