Advanced Work Packaging (AWP)
AWP is transforming capital projects across the industrial sector,
with profound implications for Owner and EPC organizations.
What is Advanced Work Packaging?
Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a construction-driven planning and collaboration system for building capital projects that is sharply focused on creating a constraint-free work environment in the field. It requires that detailed work packages be created early in the project lifecycle; i.e., in advance. These work packages must be informed by a Project Execution Plan and a detailed Path of Construction and supported by a comprehensive and disciplined stakeholder integration. Removing field constraints -- ensuring that people have the equipment, materials and instructions to complete their work -- reduces idle time, increases labour productivity and improves project outcomes. For these reasons, AWP is currently considered a best practice in the field of capital construction.
