Recent years have seen a tremendous growth in the incidence of delays to projects and the number of delay damage claims which have come into dispute. The largest dollar value disputes almost always are delay related. The financial significance of delays demands that the project owner, general contractor, construction manager, designer, and subcontractors be educated on damages. This book is designed to serve as a primer for that education process. All too many texts on this subject focus on the legal perspective, in legal language. This book is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to an area of construction that is not well understood. Many techniques are used to analyze delays. Some of these methods have inherent weaknesses and should be avoided. This book points out the shortcomings of these faulty methods and explains how a delay analysis should be performed. It then describes specifically how the analysis is done with CPM schedules.
