Delay analysis using the "snapshot" technique

In delay claims the conventional analysis method requires the prior identification of delay causes. The "snapshot" technique provides an alternative method whereby a comparison is made at selected keystone dates between the schedule in effect at the start of each period experiencing delay and the extended duration schedule at the end of the period. This technique greatly helps in the determination of the length of delays and of the corresponding causes and responsibilities. Its execution is "computer friendly."
