What would be the best "Project Delay Analysis" technique for an EPC Projects?
There are numerous delay analysis methods that can be used to quantify delays that occurred during an EPC project e.g. Impacted As-Planned, Collapsed As-Built, As-Planned vs. As-Built, Time Impact Analysis (TIA), and Windows Analysis, etc.

What would be the best "Project Delay Analysis" technique for the EPC Projects based on your experience?

It depends. There is not any "best" option for this, as far as I know.
I have found risk management analysis, specifically quantitative, useful to manage project delays, regardless if I am part of the contractor team or the purchaser team.
I've never heard of any of these terms before. I'm always pleasantly surprised to see others with so much experience that is different from my own. This is really one of the strengths of this site. I'll be following this thread to see what others have to say.
Provided you have the appropriate assumptions list, and squeezed enough of the requirements into the "should have" but not absolutely necessary column, then you can increase/decrease the range in scope. Scope is one of the key influences on delays...and finishing early.

I have used quantitative risk analysis on large construction projects. What kind of effort are you willing to put?
I think the best approach should be decided with the client or your PMO at the start of the project.
Also, it depends on the available information. Collapsed As Built, Impacted As Planned, As Built vs As Planned can be applied retrospectively after the delays have occurred and events happened while others can be applied as the delays occur to look ahead or forecast the future.
