What is delay analysis?

Delay analysis, also known as schedule delay analysis, involves investigating events to identify the reasons behind project delays. SynePeak specializes in delay analysis across various industries, with a focus on expertise in the construction sector.
The process utilizes Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling methods to examine events and determine the precise causes and extent of delays, particularly on the critical path of a project. This information is valuable for addressing delay claims through legal avenues or negotiations.
The initial step entails a thorough examination of facts, contemporaneous records, programs, and other reliable sources of information. An experienced professional or team of professionals carefully considers all relevant information. SynePeak conducts these fact-finding exercises with confidence, applying suitable delay analysis methods to model the effects of events. Each delay is then analyzed based on its cause and resulting effects.
This analysis is performed in straightforward situations with a limited number of events or in more complex scenarios involving numerous events. SynePeak ensures a comprehensive understanding of the circumstances to provide accurate and effective delay analysis.

How is it utilized in construction?

In the construction industry, forensic schedule delay analysis investigates assignments and activities using Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling methods to model the true project state, facilitating the resolution of delay claims through legal proceedings or negotiations.
Various methods are employed to quantify project delays, including:
Impact as-Planned
Examining the impact of delays based on the original plan.
Collapsed as-built
Condensing the as-built schedule to assess the impact of delays.
As-Planned vs As-Built
Comparing the planned schedule with the actual construction timeline.
Time Impact Analysis
Assessing the impact of specific changes on the project schedule.
Window Analysis
Focusing on a specific period to determine the impact on project delays.
Each forensic delay analysis method comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. The selection of methods for quantifying delays should be based on comprehensive prior analyses and a thorough understanding of the project.
