The impacted as-planned method of delay analysis is a technique which forecasts or predicts a delay’s effect on a project’s completion date. This delay analysis method involves the insertion or addition of activities representing delays or changes into the baseline schedule to determine the impact of those delay activities. Use of the impacted as-planned schedule analysis method is generally restricted to the quantification of delays for contemporaneous requests for time extensions.
Implementation of the impacted as-planned delay analysis involves identifying project delays or changes and then inserting or adding activities, which represent these delays or changes, into the baseline construction schedule. The resulting schedule demonstrates the effect of the delays or changes on a project’s completion date.
It should be noted that there are several important considerations for choosing an appropriate schedule delay analysis methodology. Each claim is unique and deals with different contract requirements, situational contexts, levels of documentation, complexities, legal jurisdictions, and dispute resolution forums, among other factors. The selection of a particular delay analysis method should be based on professional judgment and diligent factual research and evaluation.
