How To: Categorize, Analyze and Report Project Construction Delays
Construction Delays are unplanned events that happen during both work planning and execution that result in a cost and/or schedule variance to the original project plan. Delays can impact your project cost and extend your project delivery schedule. Delays may also result in litigation if there is a dispute over who was responsible for the project delay – so it is critical to capture, analyze and resolve project delays quickly, and know who is responsible for each delay. Capturing, assessing and reporting on delays is a standard project management process to manage the unplanned events that happen during the planning and execution of any major project.
