Enterprise Package 


Begin with the End in Mind – Plan for  AWP Success in Every Project Phase

for Owners

Capital /Portfolio Projects

Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) has been identified as an industry best practice by the Construction Industry Institute as a way to address all of these issues and more.


However, some project teams are unsure of where to start. Between defining processes, identifying tools that support AWP, and getting the project stakeholders on the same page, implementing a new way of executing projects seems daunting. 

The Challenge

Capital / Portfolio Projects continue to struggle with limited visibility into project performance, a lack of standardization and too many manual error-prone processes, and misunderstood expectations between Owners and Construction Contractors.

The Solutions

Leveraging AWP technology solutions and templates that have already been created by Subject Matter Experts, your project is well positioned to get started quickly. The following technology solutions will be supported by a suite of services, dedicated resources, and deliverables to meet the needs of the project at each project stage gate. 


ONPlan™ - Advanced Work Packaging  Standardization Across the Organization

  • AWP Health & Management Diagnostics

  • AWP Best Practices Library

  • Scorecards for All Project Stakeholders
