Abstract

Delay is a worldwide problem which normally occurs in every project. Delay of the project occurs when a period of time of the completion date is late or postponed. Since the project delayed, the cost of the project will have escalation which will risk the contractors. Instead of getting a benefit from the project, they gain losses.
