Abstract
In recent years, more and more construction projects have terminated not on site but in the courtroom. Delays are a fact of life, and as a result, analyzing construction claims has become an integral part of the project's construction life. To prepare for litigation, schedule documentation proving responsibility must be prepared. With present methods of tracking projects, the preparation of such schedules can be both time consuming and costly. The analysis itself is usually complex and can be aided by a computerized approach. This paper presents an integrated system that aids in the analysis of claims resulting from delays occurring on construction projects.
