Forensic scheduling is a distinct branch of construction project planning, scheduling and monitoring. Its aim is to study and investigate the events using specific tools like Critical Path Method and other recognized schedule calculation method, in legal proceedings, in order to determine how events interacted or impacted a project schedule.
By retrospective or prospective methods, there are quantified not only the delays and liabilities, but mostly, the parties’ responsibilities.
The main tool used in delays quantification is Critical Path Analysis. CPM Consulting® experts apply the recommended practice like As-Planned versus As-Built, As-Planned Impacted, Collapsed As-Built, Windows Analysis and Time Impact Analysis.
