Abstract: Many papers and texts published by AACE International and others have discussed the analysis of delay. Analysis involves the application of scientific or technical concepts. This paper presents the view that the underlying concepts for delay analysis have been insufficiently established or at least insufficiently documented. The industry has developed extensive principles of application without stepping back to develop the underlying theoretical framework. This paper directly addresses the question “What is Delay?” The scientific method of inquiry is applied to begin the development of an overarching theory of delay with the goal of establishing a firm logical foundation to support the sound application of analysis techniques.
