Smart Outcomes based AWP Implementation & Consulting

♦  Workshop on Fundamentals of  Pre-Construction Planning with AWP

Before taking a big leap, this workshop helps you understand the essentials of the AWP method, the current usage, practical insights on levels of success and risks involved.

 

♦ Digital AWP and WorkFace Planning – From Feed, Detail Engineering & On-site Execution

The benefits of AWP start with a disciplined management of scope, and bringing the speed and flow in work packages. Simply building Packages yield only limited results.

 

♦ AWP Focus Group Sessions: For Departments and Functions

The success of AWP program requires commitment and on-going support from most of the departments and functions. The focus group sessions are a deep-dive in the core subject matter and incorporating the AWP requirements. It may range from: people, process, technology and operational discipline.

Overcoming AWP Implementation Challenges

  • AWP Management System & Operational Discipline:
    • Project Execution Plan
    • Construction Execution
    • Supply Chain Integration
    • Contract and Deliverables
    • Sub-contractor engagement

 

  • When/where do I start ? Who should be involved?

    • Project Phase – Feed, Detail Engineering, Construction
    • Departments & Functions involved
    • Processes  & Procedures

 

  • Working with the Package vs. Packaging Work
  • Avoid ‘building packages’ syndrome

Just because Owner / Contract requires it – no real impact in the Field or the Project!

  • Remove hurdles and maintain the speed and flow from EWP to CWP, CWP to IWP
  • “I still don’t have the Material!” What are PWPs?

The Original AWP Concept: Scope Alignment

“AWP provides a structured method and work process for early engagement of key stakeholders as well as construction considerations and expertise in advance to influence engineering design, project controls, and supply chain and their related processes, in scoping, coding and prioritizing the deliverable as work packages in alignment to the build method and path of construction on a project.”

The Assembly Line Method: From Design to Installation

We believe that realizing benefits of AWP method is hard work. Bringing Lean to Construction is based on a “People” driven emphasis to execute the job – more than documents & data.

If you have come up with the method but don’t have the people through the stages who are engaged, continually improving and adjusting the process, reducing waste, doing in-process verification (IPV, aka. Quality checks in the Lean assembly line), audits and catch problems before they multiply downstream; one should not expect any different results than that of a conventional project.

Why bother if you are only going half way? Save the trouble if there isn’t full commitment from the leadership, departments and functions. The success of the program depends on many departments, functions and people at all levels in the organization. Realizing the benefits of AWP & Lean requires dedication and discipline from Project Management, Project Controls, Engineering, Supply Chain, Document Management, Information Technology and needs the commitment from the top floor to the shop floor.

Better Safety + Measurability + Accountability + Responsiveness + Transparency
Not only design but also materials!

Digital AWP impact should be realized across all stages of the project – in Engineering Design, Construction Planning & Onsite Execution.

Forward and Backward Pass for CWP/EWP Boundary Definition and Schedule

Most EPC projects are structurally / contractually challenged to forge better alignment early on a project. From the traditional waterfall method of Engineering, Procurement and Construction projects, the AWP method ported on the PACE Operating System 4.0 helps in greater collaboration between owners, contractors and subcontractors in a timely manner. PACE serves as the cloud  control tower and a common collaboration platform that digitally engages the following:

  • All the key stakeholders: Owner, Engineering firm, General Contractor and the Sub-Contractor
  • Across Project Phases: Feed, Detail Engineering, Construction & Completions
  • Organization hierarchy: Project Manager, Engineering Manager, Leads, Superintendent, General foreman, Foreman
