Planning with Primavera/EOT for additional works


How to develop EOT claim by using P6 for additional woks/change in the specs/hold on activities


Dear Anil,

Thanks for your question.As per my understanding the answer can be replied in the following sections:

1- EOT for on Hold activities. Lets say an activity was on hold from 1st may upto 31st Aug. you will have the updated schedule.From 1st may you will suspend the activity until 31st aug. Update the schedule as per project progress upto 31st aug and keeping the on Hold activity suspended. Run the schedule to see the how much impact this suspension has caused on the project completion date. The same will be the days of EOT.

Compare it with your original baseline bars so one can easily understand.Please make sure that you can only two open ended activities for the baseline schedule and so you have not change the linkages while making EOT claim schedule.

2- EOT for Quantity variation. Suppose you have 300 meters of cable laying activity and in the agreed baseline you have assigned 50 days duration for this. now the quantity becomes 600 meters so you can double the duration as 100 days based on your agreed baseline schedule.

3- EOT for Additional works. simply add the activities for the new if your are planning to do the additional works in parallel to original scope  then you can ask for extra cost for supervision etc.secondly, you can start the extra work after completion of the originals scope of work and that will give you the EOT time.

Please go through the above and let me know if its not clear to you.

Best Regards,
