    Default as with / same as

    I'm not sure about how to use "same as" and "as with". For example,

    1. We set the timing of start of Project B in Japan as 10 days after the start of Project A, which is same as the timing of start of Project B in the U.S.

    2. We set the timing of start of Project B in Japan as 10 days after the start of Project A, same as the timing of start of Project B in the U.S.

    3. We set the timing of start of Project B in Japan as 10 days after the start of Project A, as with the timing of start of Project B in the U.S.

    (It's an international company, and the Japan team decided the timing of the project by following the example of
    the U.S. team.)

    Do these three sentences work (and do they mean the same thing)?

    Default Re: as with / same as

    The phrase "the timing of start of" is unnatural. "Starting time" would be better. With that amendment, 3 works as is. 2 should be the same as, and 1 which is the same as.
