  8. 8. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute More so than ever, Business and Projects/Engineering concerns are aligned • Many of these factors are out of control of individual companies and project teams. It is, therefore, more compelling to enhance one's project delivery effectiveness through executing projects the "right way" • That encompasses mastering project and business risk identification, sharing and management within a project delivery system capable of delivering the promised business value, in a predictable fashion 8

  15. 15. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute Reliable and effective constructability strategy Definition: Constructability Reviews (CR) are “ the optimum use of construction knowledge in planning, design, procurement, and field operations to achieve overall project objectives". (CII) A Constructability Review (CR) constitutes an analysis of the plant design (usually performed by experienced construction, maintenance, & operations personnel) intended to reduce costs, save time, ensure quality and safety, as well as enhance the management of risk in the construction phase, during plant operation, and during subsequent maintenance of the facility. 15
  16. 16. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute How effective is your company's CR process? q Do you start you CR early in definition? (timing) q Do you have multiple CR sessions throughout the definition phase? (frequency) q Does your primary Construction Manager (CM) participate in the review? Will you have a new CM at execution? (continuity of strategy ownership and accountability) q Do you document your CR? (traceability) q Do you provide enough information as input to your CR (such as models, site reviews, technology considerations)? (quality) q Do you use corporate project knowledge in your CR? (lessons learned & continuous improvement) q How involved is your project sponsor in the CR? (alignment with business) 16

An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute Linking Together Project Delivery Components: " The Mortar Concept© " • To enable the holistic effectiveness of all these project delivery components, a project needs to operate within a framework capable of ensuring both the right timing and the optimum quality of information used • This framework is defined based on two structural features: 1. It needs to support timeliness of decisions through a Project Decision Support System (PDSS©) 2. It needs to ensure accurate project information flow through a workable Project Information Flow Protocol (PIFP©) 19 © Hamdi, The Mortar Concept in Project Management, 2015

  24. 24. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a project delivery system that emphasizes construction as a primary planning driver 24
  25. 25. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute What is Advanced Work Packaging (AWP)? “Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a work process framework fundamentally based on the idea of thinking with the end in mind. It is designed to allow engineering planning be driven by construction sequencing. Simply put, this is achieved by breaking down the project scope into Construction Work Packages that are fed with Engineering Work Packages.” 25
  26. 26. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute How is that achieved? 1. Extending PEPs to the front-end planning phase; "bringing the field to the office" 2. A focus on field work packages/installation work packages as project information units 3. Work packaging structure becomes the skeleton of the project; a workface planner is dedicated to the management of these packages 4. The benefit of a common intuitive project language and tools 26

  40. 40. An Introduction To A New Framework For Successful Construction Project Delivery Olfa Hamdi, MSc Eng, MSc Res Founder, The Advanced Work Packaging Institute O.H. Vision for AWP and the construction industry • AWP is currently a strong experience based model; theoretical validation pending • Aiming for an industry-wide protocol; project information mapping is a first step but it should be executed in parallel to other industry- wide efforts • The AWP system requires further design – Mostly a human-powered decision making system – Spatial representation of projects needs to be integrated with business decisions – More to do in terms of quantification, storage, communication of information – Integration and interoperability are key • We are still far from automation but we are heading in the right direction – Our industry needs to learn from other sectors and experiences – We need to capitalize on those successful implementations cases – We need to bring in the best talents from the IT sector to revolutionize our industry 40
