Abstract

Established by CII to validate the exploratory findings of Research Team (RT) 272, RT 319, Making the Case for Advanced Work Packaging as a Standard (Best) Practice, investigated the applicability of Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) across industrial construction sectors and on different-sized projects, to illustrate actual AWP implementation efforts and details. This research extends the previous findings on AWP implementation documented in Implementation Resource (IR) 272-2 (2013). This three-volume resource provided an extended AWP model, along with definitions, procedures, contracting guidelines, job role descriptions, checklists, case studies, and templates. All three volumes are a necessary pre-read for this document, which presents 13 new case studies and three new expert interviews. Incorporating the RT 272 research, RT 319 analyzed a total of 20 case studies and 25 expert interviews, to identify the most updated and effective methods of AWP implementation.
