Abstract: Traditionally, productivity analyses and delay analyses have been treated separately as two different methodologies and have usually been prepared as separate work products. In reality, however, both analyses address productivity issues. A delay analysis can be used, in part, as a measure of the inefficient use of project time. A productivity analysis measures the inefficient use of project resources. This paper will attempt to draw correlations between these two types of analyses and show a conceptual methodology that can be used to increase the calculated delay quantum of a delay analysis by using the results of a "measured mile" analysis. Using this methodology it is possible to increase the number of days for which time driven cost damages are attributable to another party.
