Understand Why the 4 Forensic Schedule Analysis (FSA) Methods May Give Different Results and Learn to Quantify and Reconcile the Differences

Perceived wisdom within the construction industry is that different Forensic Schedule Analysis (FSA) methods produce different results on the same set of facts or information. There are many potential variables independent of the methods that could cause this, such as the analyst's bias or the quality of the method's implementation. However, some experts are of the opinion that different results are generated by the methods themselves and that some methods may be potentially defective. The pertinent question is whether the different methods actually generate different answers when applied properly to the same set of facts or are the observed differences natural aspects of the methods that can be documented and quantified?

This session with expert speaker John Livengood will explore this question. John will examine a specific set of facts and will apply each of the four major FSA methods - the As-Planned vs. As-Built, Contemporaneous Period Analysis, Retrospective TIA, and Collapsed As-Built - to those facts. If the methods generate different results, he will explain how and why the different results occur, how to quantify them and reconcile the differences and what conclusions a FSA expert should draw from these differences.

In this session, you will explore the different Forensic Schedule Analysis (FSA) methods and discuss the four major FSA methods.

This Webinar will help you understand:

  • Why different delay methodologies give different results
  • The role of the Contemporaneous Understanding of Criticality in FSA
  • Understanding the limits of each major FSA methodology
  • Learning the advantages of Trend Charts
  • Daily Delay Methodology - How to use it to your advantage

Session Highlights:

  • Critical requirements for TIAs and Windows methodologies
  • Learn why the collapsed -as-built is seldom the right solution
  • The advantages of the As-Planned As-Built method as a good delay methodology
  • Learn how to use Daily Delay Measure
  • Learn how the Contemporaneous Understanding of Criticality influences your analysis
