Work Packaging with O3

See Status, Progress, Leading Indicators. and
the Health of Your AWP Processes

O3 Solutions makes work packaging easy with the availability to track across Construction Work Areas (CWAs), Construction Work Packages (CWPs), Installation Work Packages (IWPs), Scaffolding Work Packages (SWPs), document management, materials and resources. 

The use of work packaging encourages planning, accuracy and mitigated constraints and roadblocks. Responsibilities do not change for field personnel when employing it but instead make work easier with the assistance of planning, better structure and more resources available.

The Challenges

Successful projects are powered by




  • Manual processes – Scaling AWP at the enterprise level requires automation, it is too cumbersome to manage multiple work packages in Excel

  • Lack of leading indicators – Traditional reporting is rear-facing and out-of-date almost as soon as the report is generated

  • Inaccurate reports – The use of spreadsheets or paper reports increases the likelihood of errors and is very time consuming

  • Lack of measurement – Key performance indicators are not measured consistently across companies, projects, disciplines, or stakeholders

O3's work packaging solution works no matter how big or small your project may be or the  phase of your project. You can initialize a work package framework in the early planning phases or establish a work packaging process even after construction execution is underway.
