The Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is an innovative methodology that, even if in the early stages, has already become an industry best practice. This class will present how AWP coupled with an Autodesk delivery platform (Navisworks software, BIM 360 software, Forge, and so on) is closing the gaps between engineering, procurement processes, and construction priorities with the goal of making engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects truly construction driven. We will showcase a real, large, industrial project to explain main strategies for managing models, integrating data, and monitoring status using visualization.
- Discover how Advanced Work Packaging has been deployed on a real industrial project
- Learn how to link data from different sources to the 3D model to manage the overall AWP process
- Learn how to use BIM 360 and Forge to implement AWP methodology on industrial projects
- Learn how to quantify costs and discover the benefits of implementing Advanced Work Packaging
Marco Mellacqua is a Plant Information Management Coordinator at Maire Tecnimont a worldwide general contractor with a specific focus on the oil & gas, petrochemicals and fertilizer processing industries. He obtained his master's degree at Politecnico di Milano with thesis abroad on Building Information Modeling and Management at Northumbria University UK. During the degree activities he collaborated to the research project, funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, for setting up the Italian BIM construction database in order to push a radical innovation into the Italian construction sector. In the last years he is strongly involved in BIM methodology development for plant design and information management of engineering data.
