What is Advanced Work Packaging? 

AWP began as a Workface Planning (WFP), and was initially developed in Canada as an effort to reverse declining field productivity by improving execution planning and efficiency. This concept was then extended into a partnership between the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) and the Construction Industry Institute (CII).

AWP was recognized as a CII Best Practice in 2015. There is a LOT of information about AWP, so it can be difficult to know where to start. Below, we will focus on the key information sources and most easily accessible information.

The intent for this toolkit is to provide help and guidance for people and companies looking to start their AWP journey. Each deliverable will be structured as a logical, sequential part of the process, and the resulting toolkit will provide a step-by-step guide to AWP implementation and execution.

Learning About AWP


In this deliverable, we will start our journey by learning what AWP is, and how to access the abundant available information on AWP that exists from various sources and providers.


Business Case and ROI


In this second deliverable, we will continue to track the path of AWP implementation within a company by
looking at what is needed to get management approval to start using AWP.


Choosing a Pilot Project


In this third deliverable, we will look at what you need to consider when selecting a pilot project for AWP implementation.


AWP Procedure


In this fourth deliverable, we will look at what you need to consider when establishing an AWP Procedure for AWP implementation.


AWP Workflows


In this fifth deliverable, we will examine and walk through the various types of workflows needed to successfully implement AWP. 


AWP Software


In the sixth deliverable, you will learn how to pick the best software and the key factors to consider to successfully support your AWP program.
