AWP provides a step-change in project productivity.
AWP is evolving as a best practice in the industry.
AWP is increasingly being contractually mandated on projects.
Labor Shortages in Industrial Craft Workers.
Advanced Work Packaging
Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) provides a structure for focussed execution planning - and production control - that is directed at the construction workface. It is a process that reduces unproductive, non-value added time.
AWP establishes a sound basis for the future machinery of construction project execution.

Information Exchanges in AWP
A virtual construction model for AWP must integrate and aggregate information across a broad range of project IT applications. It is predicted that AWP will be critically involved in establishing the set of use cases for cross-enterprise information exchange in construction.

Getting things done in construction automation is like mating elephants ...
It involves a great deal of roaring & screaming.
It takes years to produce results.
The AWP Dilemma
Owner-operators have the most to financially gain – or lose on the project.

However owners are not the primary users of the tools to support AWP.

Further it is not wise to dictate means and methods to the contractors hired to do the job.

EPCs make money from labor. A step change in increased productivity is not generally in their business interests.

Contractors must compete on cost to win-work, and hence tend to under resource support for IT tools.

Budgets for R&D are vapor thin. There is a high reluctance to try new approaches.
EPC Contractors
$3T USD - Annual Global Construction Spending
50% - Non-residential construction
40% - Typical Percent Labor Budget on a Project
80% - Construction Labor (vs Engineering)
25% - Improved Productivity
$120 B USD
- Cost Savings or Lost Revenue?

Project Level
Package Level
Workface Planning ...
is the process of organizing and delivering all the elements necessary, before work is started, to enable craft persons to perform quality work in a safe, effective and efficient manner.
End Goal
For example, the goal for a large project would be to have four weeks of constraint free work for every crew, packaged and ready to go. And if space allows, two independent weeks already staged for the crews (in order to address unexpected delays in the field with minimal idle time).
Backward Planning for IWPs
IWP Backward Planning
Adequate buffer of work front availability
@ T-2 wks
Materials Bagged and Tagged
@ T-4 wks
All constraints cleared and package is released for execution from virtual to physical package
Space, access platforms and equipment resources provisioned
@ T-6 wks
@ T-8 wks
@ T-16 wks
Outstanding constraints are escalated into "Make Ready Tasks" to expedite
= Plan Start Date for an IWP
CWP scoped into vitual IWPs
Constraint list identified
IWP limits are assigned into site materials system
