TECHNIQUES

Our experienced team of consultants use a range of scientific techniques and analytical tools to accurately model the project, evaluate its performance and characteristics. Whilst we use appropriate tools for modelling and analysis, we take extreme care in interpreting the results both from a common sense and practical point of view. We maintain a policy of constant up-gradation of our techniques and tools to match the latest industry standards.

Planning, Scheduling & Monitoring

Project planning and scheduling is the process of determining in advance the work to be done on a project and assigning specific times or dates to the tasks required to be done to achieve the project objectives. The various resources required to perform the tasks are also scheduled during the planning process. The development of a realistic project plan will enable the project team members to achieve an on-time and on-budget project completion.

  • Programme Evaluation & Review Technique (PERT)
  • Line of Balance Technique
  • Time Chainage Diagram
  • Critical Chain Scheduling
  • Schedule Simulation & What-if Analysis

Delay / Disruption Analysis & Quantification

Delay analysis is a forensic investigation of the causes behind late running or late completion of projects. Forensic schedule analysis involves the study of how actual events interacted in the context of a complex project model for the purpose of understanding the significance of a specific change or series of changes from the baseline model, and their knock-on effects on the sequence of tasks within the complex network.

  • Entitlement Analysis
  • As-planned v As-built Comparison
  • As-built But-for / Collapsed As-built Analysis
  • Window Analysis
  • Time-impact / Snapshot Analysis
  • Float Mapping Technique
  • Cause / Effect Matrix
  • Scattergun Chart
  • Productivity Analysis
  • Measured Mile Analysis
  • Time Motion Study

Risk Analysis & Quantification

Risk is most commonly defined as the probability of an event that causes a loss and the potential magnitude of the loss. Risk analysis is the identification and quantification of the probability and impact of events that may adversely affect the objectives of the project.
