All too many in the construction industry practitioners contend that schedule delay analysis is subject to entirely too much judgement on the part of the delay analyst. Many consider delay analysis unreliable and inaccurate. The purpose of this webinar is to set forth what 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 judgement on the part of the analyst, but rather on the way the various forensic schedule methods operate. 

Webinar Objectives

This webinar is unique in that it addresses the common methods of schedule delay analysis, including their strengths and weaknesses. The webinar discusses factors to be considered when selecting a method and the risk of trying to change delay analysis methodologies during the life of the dispute. Finally, the webinar explains why different delay analysis methods end up producing different results despite being based on the same project records and documents.
