The Benefits of a Purpose-Built Solution that Support AWP for Construction and WorkFace Planning

O3’s ONBuild Solution checks all of the boxes as a modern AWP software

You may have heard of Advanced Work Packaging, as it’s a CII Best Practice, but you may not know what to do with it. It’s one of the most effective methodologies in industrial construction to improve overall productivity on a project. It’s sounds great in theory, but without the proper tools to support or implement it, it’s extremely difficult on knowing where to start.

Effective WorkFace Planning requires a single comprehensive tool that can scope, manage, and progress all Installation Work Packages – not just pipe and steel – across all disciplines, functions and package phases.

ONBuild is the first tool of its kind to do all of these things. It combines sophisticated graphical work packaging with true constraint management and comprehensive reporting and analysis to identify and resolve problems before they impact productivity.

It’s solving the challenges associated with disconnected tools such as Excel to track packages in multiple disciplines. ONBuild also automates all of the manual workflows and consolidates multiple resources and disparate spreadsheets onto one easy to use platform. This also takes out the human-error associated with manual and traditional processes. A key factor to success is the ability to collaborate as a team, and ONBuild removes the burden on the WorkFace Planner to track down team progress, etc.

Some awesome features included with ONBuild are:

  • WorkFace Planning
    • Scope IWPS with or without 3D models
  • Construction Management
    • Drive construction and IWPs to completion
  • Status Visualization
    • See status, progress, availability and more in real-time
  • Constraint Management
    • Drive users to proactively clear constraints
  • Reporting and Analytics
    • Provide insights into the construction process
  • Scaffolding Management
    • Develop cross-discipline scaffold work packages and manage scaffold requests, eliminate workfront access issues

Some of the biggest benefits to using ONBuild include the ability to use one single tool to create and manage work packages consistently. This increases efficiency when executing constraint-free packages and it allows you to be proactive in decision making. By using a modern technology you can remove the antiquated tools that were being used to fill the gaps. Another big differentiator is that scaffolding is overseen within a work package framework.
