Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

There have always been debates and arguments over which delay analysis methodology is “the right one” or “the best method” to be used. Literally hundreds of articles have been published on this topic going back to the 1960’s. Which method is best is still a wide open issue amongst project owners, forensic schedulers, construction claims consultants, construction managers, contractors, and their attorneys. The level of debate has increased in recent years since AACE International published their Recommended Practice – Forensic Schedule Analysis. What has not been widely discussed or written about is what factors should be considered during the decision making process when choosing a delay analysis methodology for a particular project and/or specific delay claim.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • How should you go about choosing a schedule delay methodology for your delay claims?
  • What factors and issues should be addressed before committing to a potentially lengthy, complex, and expensive process?
  • Is the choice of a specific delay analysis method irrevocable once made?
  • What is the risk of trying to change delay analysis methods in mid-stream?
  • Why do different forensic scheduling methodologies result in different answers?

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Three legal factors that must be taken into account when choosing a method.
  • Three technical factors affecting your decision on a forensic scheduling methodology.
  • Five additional practical factors that should be considered when selecting a delay analysis method.
  • Once the delay analysis method is selected and underway, can the analyst change the methodology?
  • Become aware of the potential risk should the delay analyst change methods while performing the analysis or during prosecution of the claim.
  • Why different delay analysis methods deliver different results, even though each method uses the same project documentation.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Public and private owners
  • General contractors
  • Owner representatives
  • Design professionals
  • Construction managers
  • Attorneys
