Schedule Delay Analysis – Choosing A Method & Why You Get Different Results

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

There are numerous Forensic Schedule Analysis Methods that can be used to quantify delays that occurred during a project. Many construction industry practitioners profess that schedule delay analysis is subject to too much judgment that only a Delay Analyst can do. Many consider Delay analysis unreliable and inaccurate. This webinar sets forth the factors that 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 on the way the various forensic schedule methods operate.
