How Advanced Work Packaging Drives Next-Generation Project Management


Duration:60 minutes


Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is being touted by many as “next-generation project planning” – and for good reason. Building on long-accepted estimating, scheduling and 3D modeling techniques, AWP pivots a project’s planning philosophy into planning backwards from a defined end goal, focusing on when preceding work is needed in order to increase the likelihood of on-time completion.

AWP is equally relevant to both owner and contractor organizations, driving a more collaborative and transparent approach to executing projects. This webinar details how organizations can excel at AWP-driven projects to ensure more on-time, on-budget project successes. 

You’ll learn the benefits of:

  • Top-down planning through Path of Construction
  • Realistic Work Package development through AI-driven benchmarking
  • Digital Thread development through model visualization
  • Optimized field execution through Installation Work Package creation, and
  • Digital Twin and continuous organizational knowledge improvement
The content of this webinar is produced and directed by the event's sponsor.
