The Construction Industry Institute defines Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) as the overall process flow of all the detailed work packages (construction, engineering, and installation work packages). AWP is a planned, executable process that encompasses the work on an EPC project, beginning with initial planning and continuing through detailed design and construction execution. AWP provides the framework for productive and progressive construction, and presumes the existence of a construction execution plan.
The following are a list of materials and resources you might find helpful on your quest to learn more about AWP and how to successfully implement a program of your own.
