Improving Existing Delay Analysis Techniques for the Establishment of Delay Liabilities
Ng, S. Thomas, Skitmore, Martin, Deng, Michael Z.M., & Nadeem, Abid (2004) Improving Existing Delay Analysis Techniques for the Establishment of Delay Liabilities. Construction Innovation, 4(1), pp. 3-17.
Delay analysis and schedule compression are normally treated as separate, independent, aspects of the study of delays and their effects on the completion of construction projects. This paper examines the feasibility of integrating the delay analysis and schedule compression functions into a broad-scoped two-stage process. The main issue is shown to be the kind of delay analysis required for each stage of the process and seven existing techniques are illustrated for use in conjunction with schedule compression. Some necessary modifications to these techniques are identified together with a typology for categorising each technique.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
