Sample text

The analyst creates the “as-built schedule” after the Project is completed. The next step is to identify the delay to be analyzed. Note that this approach is a little like the tail wagging the dog. The delay must first be identified before it can be analyzed. The analysis is performed by removing the delay from the asbuilt schedule and then rerunning the schedule to see what happens. If the collapsed schedule shows an earlier Project completion date, then the conclusion would be that the delay that was removed was responsible for a Project delay equivalent to the improvement in the Project completion date associated with the collapsed schedule.

Viewed solely from the end of the Project, the lack of a pair of scissors, and the flawed procurement process that caused them to turn up missing, appears to be critical to opening the Project. Given these facts, most of us quickly see the error in the Architect’s logic, but what if the scissors are changed to aluminum tank covers? In response to the steel design error, assume that the Project Manager called the fabricator of the aluminum tank covers to let him know that the Project would be a little late, the delivery of the tank covers should be postponed.

10 Path A made progress through Day 30 but stopped for 10 days and finished on Day 50. Path B made progress and finished on Day 50. For the last 10 days both paths were critical. Total Delay = 10 days caused by Path B. Concurrent Delays 35 finished on day 50. The more detailed analysis clearly shows that this is not the case. No delay was caused by Path A, and all 10 days of delay were caused by Path B. In assessing delays during the same time frame, the analyst should ­perform the analysis on a day-by-day basis to correctly ascertain the exact activities that caused the delay and the correct magnitude of those delays.
