COAA defines an Engineering Work Package (EWP) as an engineering deliverable that is used to develop CWPs and that defines a scope of work to support construction in the form of drawings, procurement deliverables, specifications and vendor support and that is released on an agreed upon sequence consistent with the CWP schedule.
