Constraint Management

Move Beyond Manual Processes

Project teams try to “manage” constraints in spreadsheets and WorkFace Planning tools leading to multiple versions of the truth, inefficient data entry, ineffective Constraint Review meetings, and ultimately a reduction in the benefits of AWP and a decrease in construction productivity.

The Challenge(s)

  • Best Practice – Identifying constraints in an Excel checklist is not sufficient. True Constraint Management requires workflows, notifications and automation.   

  • Installation Work Packages Only – WorkFace Planning tools only support Installation Work Package (IWP) constraints leaving out other package entirely.

  • Limited Disciplines – Work Packaging tools only contain data for piping and structural steel, leaving out other non-3D model disciplines completely.  

  • Restricted Access – The people responsible for clearing constraints are not WorkFace Planners and do not have access to construction automation tools.
