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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
