In this paper, we implement the Elzaki transform method for the solution of delay differential equations (DDEs). The method executes the DDEs by implementing its properties on the given DDE. Also, the method treats the nonlinear terms with a well posed formula. The method is easy to implement with high level of accuracy. Also, restricted transformations, perturbation, linearization or discretization are not recognized. The resulting numerical evidences show that the method converges favourably to the analytic solution. All computational frameworks are performed with maple 18 software.
