MS Project 2016 How to insert into Ghantt chart delays by client so i can claim for delays later.

MS Project 2016 How to insert into Ghantt chart delays by client so i can claim for delays later.

(OP)
Good day everyone!
I'm a novice user of Project, and i have problems with clients causing delays, and i wish to show this(if you agree this is the place to do it), within my ghantt chart for client, consultant and contractor to see this,,for my endgame of protecting my interests to illustrate the delays don't come from my end(contractor) and to eventually raise a claim for extending the project, thereby extending my costs to my contractors.

Example: In a fit-out venture, the client agreed to supply the lighting, and on my created time schedule, all parties agreed to my project plan timeline. So on my scheduled time, i set up scaffolding to a 15meter height scaffold, the client delayed the lighting delivery to the entire project, and increased my scaffolding rental time, increased my labor costs, which in turn delayed my painters schedule etc etc.

Can i illustrate this lost time due to client in my ghantt chart?? and how??

Thank you, all!

I don't really understand the question. If you have a properly linked Gantt chart, and are updating regularly, you would see a delayed start for any work dependent on the scaffolding, and you would see a delayed stop for the scaffolding rental.

I would treat it as two separate issues... document the delays and update the gantt chart showing the delay and reference it in your documentation.

Thank you both! I guess my mistake was not documenting the day the delay began, and not raising this issue weekly, until resolved, to back up my case to claim delays. Thank you.

It's a thankless and tedious job to maintain the discipline and keep track of these sorts of things; those companies that are rigorous about these things are annoying to their customers, but profitable.

Can you forensically work backwards to when the delay first became noted? Not having the paperwork may make the claim more difficult to resolve.
