Forensic Schedule Analysis & Discretionary Logic


Let’s face it: Forensic Schedule Analysis (FSA) and real time schedule review do not handle CPM schedules with significant amounts of discretionary logic very well. While major theoretical and practical advancements have been made on what FSA methodology is most appropriate to evaluate schedule delay in the last decade, largely through the introduction of AACE's RP29R-03, the role of discretionary logic often is poorly addressed.


It gave me a lot to think about when developing and updating future schedules.

Nevertheless, discretionary logic — the type of logic that is not dictated by either the contract or the physical necessity of the project — continues to cause difficulty for fair and accurate analysis of schedule updates during the course of the project in the construction industry. Further, these analytical problems persist in the methodologies associated with post-construction FSA.


This recorded webinar highlights several applications and refinements of existing forensic delay methodologies, particularly As-Planned vs. As-Built, Contemporary Period Analysis and Collapsed As-Built, which can assist in identifying the as-built critical path and delay responsibility in projects with significant amounts of discretionary logic.


Listen to this information-packed webinar to:


  • Understand the basics of the major forensic delay methodologies
  • Gain information on the role of discretionary logic in CPM schedules
  • Discover how to consider and address discretionary logic in forensic applications
  • Identify which FSA methodologies can address discretionary logic with little problem
  • Determine how to adapt some methodologies to appropriately address discretionary logic
