It is not uncommon that a Work Package includes all information, graphs, data, etc. for a specific project phase. This inclusion of all data, rather than only pertinent data, could have negative consequences when it comes to decision-making. Bloated work packages are more difficult to understand and decrease the ability to make informed decisions.
AWP is a disciplined approach aiming to improve project productivity and predictability by aligning planning and execution activities throughout the project lifecycle, from project setup to startup and turnover. It is the overall process flow of the development of work packages in a staged, planned and executable process that systematically accounts for engineering, procurement and construction perspectives.
