Industry / General Knowledge

What is AWP? (Advanced Work Packaging)

Advanced Work Packaging (AWP), also known as digital work packaging, is a structured approach to managing capital projects that aligns engineering, procurement, and construction processes. By promoting collaboration and workface planning, AWP improves efficiency, reduces costs, and minimizes delays in project delivery. This innovative construction work packaging method is supported by specialized construction integration platform and construction work package software solutions.

What is WFP? (WorkFace Planning)

WFP (WorkFace Planning) is a subset of AWP, focusing on the efficient execution of construction tasks. It involves breaking down activities into manageable packages that can be accomplished within a specific timeframe by a single crew, ensuring that all necessary resources are available before work starts. Work packaging through WFP is a crucial aspect of advanced work packaging that helps ensure smooth project execution.

What is a CWP? (Construction Work Package)

A CWP (Construction Work Package) defines a construction scope that can be logically separated from the overall project. It contains all the information needed for planning, executing, and assessing the work, ensuring that the workforce understands what needs to be done. The development and management of CWPs are fundamental components of advanced work packaging (AWP) methodologies.

What is an IWP? (Installation Work Package)

IWP (Installation Work Package) is a detailed subset of a CWP (Construction Work Package), providing specific instructions for field execution. It outlines precisely what needs to be installed, the order of activities, and the resources required, ensuring efficient and safe execution on-site. This level of detailed planning and execution guidance is a critical component of advanced work packaging practices in the construction industry.

What is a CWA? (Construction Work Area)

CWA delineates the physical areas where construction activities will take place. It helps in planning and coordinating tasks, ensuring that different crews and equipment don’t overlap or interfere with each other’s operations.

What is a VCM?

The term VCM stands for “Virtual Construction Model” and it is often confused with a 3D design model. While a 3D design model, coming from engineering, is produced as the project design evolves, a Virtual Construction Model is used to analyze and simulate construction sequences, readiness, and progress. WorkPacks help to take the 3D design model(s) and add layers of data to enhance and optimize the projects teams construction strategy beyond just a representation of components in 3D.

What is a Digital Thread?

A digital thread is the identification and transfer of information between different systems. A digital thread is identified by three specific items: a template, an owner, and the frequency of data transfer.

What is Constraint Management’s role in Work Packaging?

Constraint management in work packaging plays a crucial role in ensuring the smooth execution of a project by identifying, tracking, and resolving various factors that might impede progress or cause delays. These constraints can include a wide range of elements that need to be in place for work to proceed effectively, such as resource availability, permits and approvals, access, engineering designs and drawings, dependencies, environmental factors, regulations and standards, risk, safety, and other informative instructions.
In WorkPacks, the constraint management module provides tools and features to track, prioritize, and resolve these constraints. This helps project teams stay on top of potential issues, allocate resources effectively, and take proactive measures to prevent delays and disruptions. By managing constraints, projects can maintain their timelines, budgets, and overall success.
