Nowadays, most of developed and developing countries, because of both limited resources and growing competitive markets, looking for to diagnose the causes of projects delay and are trying to develop solutions for decreasing amount of delay in next projects. In this paper initially notions related to delay, project risk management, Failure Mode Effects and Analysis (FMEA) method have been reviewed and also construction projects of Kurdistan state organization of schools renovation have been examined. Then a framework based on Fuzzy FMEA and AHP model have been proposed in order to recognize the most important risks and determining the amount of effects of these risks on main objective of projects (i.e. time, cost and quality) and estimating their occurrence probabilities. Meanwhile along with calculating importance coefficient of factors, some ideas to prevent or decrease consequences of these factors have been recommended
