Traditional methods of preparing delay claims suffer from complexity and significant time investment to analyze the schedule.
Additionally, inherent bias due to subjective preparation of claims leads to difficulty during settlement negotiation.
Using objective, repeatable methods to analyze schedules facilitates amicable, impartial settlements.
The ability to quickly and accurately analyze concurrent delays and categorize schedule impacts is an integral part of reducing claim settlement costs.
CPM schedules are complex, but software specifically built to improve analysis is the answer.
Forensic PM software provides fast, accurate, objective and repeatable forensic analysis based on industry standard methods.
Identify All Paths
Typical scheduling software identifies a single critical path. This approach is simplistic and does not offer a view of the entire schedule.
Our software identifies, filters, and ranks the complete longest path of every activity, of every contractual milestone, for every snapshot, using custom algorithms.
Analyzing changes to paths for all activities, instead of just one critical path, makes schedule analysis more accurate and gives context to all activities and relationships, regardless of their presence in the critical path.

Navigate Project Updates
Project updates are pre-analyzed and displayed in an easy-to-navigate web interface that includes:
- - Retrospective window analysis for forensically observing dynamic logic
- - Path specific Gantt charts
- - Choice of Milestones to analyze
- - Variances and changes over time to paths
Easily navigate thousands of paths throughout your schedule.
Delay and Reduction Analysis
Delay and Reduction indicators draw attention to the activities that experienced a completion date change due to:
- Wait: Activity did not start on time (data date push)
- Progress: Active activity duration increase
- Duration: Planned activity duration increase
- Logic: Dynamic effects to paths, or completion milestones
Key Indicator Tagging
Important changes are easy to miss in the complexity of large schedules. Our software tags and highlights these changes in the data tables and Gantt charts.
