Abstract: Windows Analysis is a term that has been used (and misused) frequently to refer to various, and in many situations very different, delay analysis methodologies. Other papers under the FSA series, related to this paper, address various implementations and derivatives of analysis methods that utilize the windows analysis approach. This paper focuses on the usage of modified and/or recreated schedules, mostly after the fact, as a tool to analyze delays. The paper explains the various derivatives of this method, discusses their strengths and weaknesses and addresses the challenges that may face an analyst in carrying out this type of analysis. Further, the paper provides useful recommendations to assist the analyst in deciding whether this method is suitable for the case at hand and outlines the objectives and expectations when using this method.
