Primary Author: Mr. Michael S. Dennis CCP

Audience Focus: Intermediate
Application Type: Research
Venue: 2014 AACE International Annual Meeting, New Orleans, LA, USA

Abstract: This paper is a review of the problems faced in forensic analysis with increasingly larger and more complex project schedules for EPC contracts. It will cover the potential problems caused during the life-cycle and evolution of the project schedule. Along with the problems that are encountered during and at the end of the job, due to the schedule size, complexity and the issues caused by the scheduling software. It will discuss analysis techniques for analyzing these massive schedules forensically (summarization, EPC individually, period by period, etc...) along with potential pit falls to avoid.
