management. Since each project will have its own peculiarities, this
software is to be an "Alarm" calling for further investigations if required.
The ease of use and rapidity and conciseness of report production made this
software a popular construction management software, used each month by top
mangers to check where the project stands and when it is most likely to be
version provides graphical presentation of the progress status in comparison
to the ideal performance as well as predictions of the most probable
completion date of the works
in accordance with the statistically deduced
relation between cost and time, applicable to the majority of building
Also helps assess the responsibility of encountered delays.
worthwhile construction management software for construction delay claim
The report to be presented using enhanced
version is customizable to include specific data of user (such as company
name, project title, reporter name...etc) as well as save project data
The empirical S-curve
relation between Progress and
Time, which would result in from a proper construction scheduling is the
core of analysis. Presented reports by this unique construction management
software include a focus on performance as well as an estimate of the delay

How CM Reporter Construction Management Software determines
responsibility for delay?
The technique adopted by CM reporter construction management software
is a periodical exercise to monitor progress impediments and try to remove their
effect and catch up as early as possible. This is achieved by comparing current
status of progress as well as progress in the month before with scheduled
progress of the works. Each month an estimation of the end date is calculated
based on the S-Curve analysis, where the following possible cases would be
checked, while Case 1 is our focus for scrutinizing delay responsibility
Case 1 ( Delayed Construction): Estimated end date is later than contractual end date (i.e. an
overall delay in the project completion is foreseen)
- If the estimated end date is found to remain same as that estimated at the
end of month before, it is concluded that the Contractor activities are going
along an S-curve parallel to the one produced from original schedule with a
simple shift. It is then assumed that certain impediment force have resulted in
the shift of the progress curve (Likely to be an external force)
- If the estimated end date is found to have moved later than the date
estimated by the end of month before, it is concluded that the Contractor's
performance is slower than should be, and therefore the Contractor himself
is likely to be responsible for the delay unless specific causes are explained
by him to have been beyond his control.
- If the end date is found to have moved earlier than the date estimated by
the end of the month before, it is concluded that Contractor has accelerated
his performance and is trying to catch up with schedule. It also could be
that he has already caught up with schedule which leads in Case 2 or even more
has became ahead of schedule which leads to case 3
Case 2 ( Completion on Time): Estimated end date coincides with contractual end date (No
delay in the project completion is foreseen)
Case 3 ( Early Completion): Estimated end date is earlier than contractual end date (An early
completion of the works is foreseen)
By doing so CM Reporter construction management software not only considers
the current construction progress situation but also the rate of change of this
situation which can be called a second degree analysis of progress.
