Explore and Evaluate the Strength of Different Delay Analysis Methodologies in Your Projects

Forensic schedule analysis plays an important role in construction claims because it is the primary mechanism that enables the actual critical path of a project to be determined. In establishing entitlement to a delay claim, it is necessary to define a project's critical path to determine causation. Causation is the link between the contract liability, and damages being claimed. CPM scheduling and Time Impact Analysis procedures have been around for over half a century, yet the topic of forensic schedule analysis is one that remains at the forefront in our industry.

The primary reason for this long-standing hot topic is due to the different methods available and differing opinions on what methods work best for performing a forensic analysis. This presentation by expert speaker Peter Vosbikian will familiarize stakeholders with - key schedule analysis terminology; the different methodologies to determine a project's critical path; the strengths of different forensic methodologies given the nature or circumstances of the impact or claim; and different damage categories that can result of a delay impact. This session will also explore how different methodologies can yield different results using similar data.

Whether you've experienced a delay and incurred damages, received a delay claim requesting equitable adjustment, or involved in resolving a delay claim, this session will provide insight on the different methodologies and important concepts involved in time extensions. It will also provide guidance on the data and documentation needed should a project delay or impact arise.
