Abstract

When the completion of a project is delayed, how to accurately analyze the impact of a delayed activity on the project is a main problem for construction project managers. Available professional scheduling tools have been widely employed to plan and control construction schedules. They are not designated for delay analysis that requires numerous computation scenarios by different views. Therefore, a comprehensive management information system (MIS) for schedule delay analysis is needed for schedule delay management. The first step of developing an MIS is to carry out the task of system requirement analysis. This study used the method of IDEFØ, a structured analysis and design technique, to portray the contents of an MIS for schedule delay analysis. Based on the results of this study, further system implementation will be easy to do. Furthermore, the research results can also be used to necessary examination for delay claim preparations.
