Later this week, WPL Publishing will host a webinar to provide construction professionals and their attorneys useful information about forensic schedule analysis.

The webinar will teach construction professionals how to perform required analyses of project delays so that the cause and duration of those delays can be determined. The program’s speaker, Trauner Consulting Services Director Mark Nagata, will use “Recommended Practice for Forensic Schedule Analysis,” a document published by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International (AACEI), as the foundation for his presentation. The event will be loaded with practical examples and real case studies to show simple and successful approaches to the quantification of delays. To register for the 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/ksumwrp.

This webinar, entitled “Forensic Schedule Analysis -- Examples and Case Studies,” will do the following:

  • Explain, briefly, basic Critical Path Method scheduling terms such as “float,” the “longest path,” and the “critical path.”
  • Discuss the “Recommended Practice for Forensic Schedule Analysis” document. Though not quite an industry standard, the document is a widely used treatise that identifies and describes many approaches to the analysis of delays. Mr. Nagata will point out important details contained in the 100-plus-page document and provide webinar attendees useful information for establishing entitlement to a time extension and reimbursement of delay costs.
  • Highlight several examples and case studies about applying a few basic principles and approaches for identifying and quantifying critical project delays.

Mr. Nagata’s expertise lies in the areas of construction claims preparation and evaluation, development, and review of critical path method schedules, delay analysis, dispute resolution, specification writing, and training. He served as a contributing author to and continues to provide additional revisions for AACEI’s Recommended Practice No. 29R-03 for Forensic Schedule Analysis. This is the first industry publication to classify, comprehensively, the many schedule analysis techniques. His contribution included describing and defining the Contemporaneous Period Analysis. He co-authored “Construction Delays: Understanding Them Clearly, Analyzing Them Correctly.” He also writes technical papers and articles for industry publications and delivers presentations about scheduling and claims analysis topics.

Following Mr. Nagata’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.

Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/ksumwrp.
