Understand the Four Basic Forensic Schedule Delay Methodologies

Let's face it: Forensic Schedule Analysis (FSA) and real time schedule review do not handle CPM schedules with significant amounts of discretionary logic very well. Major theoretical and practical advancements have been made on what FSA methodology is most appropriate to evaluate schedule delay in the last decade, largely through the introduction of AACE's RP29R-03.

Nevertheless, discretionary logic - the type of logic that is not dictated by either the contract or the physical necessity of the project - continues to cause difficulty for fair and accurate analysis of schedule updates during the course of the project in the construction industry. Further, these analytical problems persist in the methodologies associated with post-construction FSA.

This webinar by John Livengood will consider several applications and refinements of existing forensic delay methodologies, particularly As-Planned vs. As-Built, Contemporary Period Analysis and Collapsed As-Built , which can assist in identifying the as-built critical path and delay responsibility in projects with significant amounts of discretionary logic.
