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.
