Construction Engineering and Management,
Background/Objectives: The aim of this paper is to propose a decision support tool for contractors` delay claim analysis and it considers delay occurrence significance and its impress. Contractors delays have been always discussed a subject of conflict in construction projects. Allocation of claim and investigation method is usually an ambiguous term. As common, side effects of delayed activities aren`t considered while most delayed works in project need an extra time to accomplish more than initial defined time. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Delay measurements cannot be looked upon as crisp data and thus this research has taken a Fuzzy logic look upon the concept. It aims at introducing a novel analysis technique to atone side effects of delayed items which are not contractor’s failure. Findings: The results are presented based on field studies and will be suit for engineers, practitioners and academic researchers so guidance graphs are provided for analysts who consider contractors` delay claim. Application/Improvements: This article found a better way to distinguishbetween uncertain issues in contractor delay analysis.
