What is Advanced Work Packaging (AWP)?

“Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a work process framework fundamentally based on the idea of thinking with the end in mind. It is designed to allow engineering planning be driven by construction sequencing. Simply put, this is achieved by breaking down the project scope into Construction Work Packages that are fed with Engineering Work Packages.

How is that achieved? 1. Extending PEPs to the front-end planning phase; "bringing the field to the office" 2. A focus on field work packages/installation work packages as project information units 3. Work packaging structure becomes the skeleton of the project; a workface planner is dedicated to the management of these packages 4. The benefit of a common intuitive project language and tools

Constructability Reviews: a critical practice for AWP q Do you start you CR early in definition? (timing) q Do you have multiple CR sessions throughout the definition phase? (frequency) q Does your primary Construction Manager (CM) participate in the review? Will you have a new CM at execution? (continuity of strategy ownership and accountability) q Do you document your CR? (traceability) q Do you provide enough information as input to your CR (such as models, site reviews, technology considerations)? (quality) q Do you use corporate project knowledge in your CR? (lessons learned & continuous improvement) q How involved is your project sponsor in the CR? (alignment with business)

Linking Together Project Delivery Components: " The Mortar Concept™" •

To enable the holistic effectiveness of all these project delivery components, a project needs to operate within a framework capable of ensuring both the right timing and the optimum quality of information used • This framework is defined based on two structural features: 1. It needs to support timeliness of decisions through a Project Decision Support System (PDSS) 2. It needs to ensure accurate project information flow through a workable Project Information Flow Protocol (PIFP) © Hamdi, The Mortar Concept in Project Management, 2015

Productivity •

The relationship between AWP and field productivity is a result of the execution of IWPs that are constraint-free. Consequently, frontline personnel can focus exclusively on construction execution without wasting time on the retrieval of materials, engineering, and documentation. AWP brings high consciousness about space management. Movements around the field are minimized as crews are able to complete IWPs without interruptions. Higher involvement of superintendent and foremen in project execution, empowering crews to deliver IWPs scope with enhanced productivity.

• Reported 15% productivity increase • Reported rework rate below company average

Safety • • • •

AWP and WFP formalize identification and mitigation of safety issues during planning and development of IWPs Early identification of potential construction risks during the initial planning stage, where all key project participants are involved Unnecessary movements around the site were minimized IWPs close-out includes feedback and continuous improvement on safety as a requirement.
