Scalable AWP Requirements Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a project execution methodology being used by owners, contractors, and engineers to improve construction efficiency and effectiveness. AWP is accomplished by deliberately aligning planning and execution activities throughout the project lifecycle—from inception through handover. The approach is gaining traction within the industrial sector, particularly on very large, complex projects. Some AWP implementations on large capital projects have produced significant productivity improvements and cost savings, prompting firms to consider how the approach could be scaled down to smaller projects. To this end, Autodesk organized a series of collaborative workshops with owners and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firms that were early adopters of AWP. This paper summarizes the learnings from those workshops.
