· Documented Deliverable Work PackagesDocumented Deliverable WorkPackages (DWP) represent the development of any project specific/significantdocuments (typically non-engineering or design related) that needs to besubmitted as part of the management control of the project, such as a ProjectExecution Plan, etc. A DWP should include the sequence of work steps (andquantity of documents, if applicable) or document development process.This type of Work Package is morecommonly utilized during the planning phase of a project (i.
e., Concept,Definition), where numerous documents need to be generated in support of aproject’s business plan. · Engineering Work PackagesAn Engineering Work Package (EWP)includes engineering deliverables (such as basic and/or detail design) that isrequired in support of Procurement Packages, Manufacturing Work Packages,Installation Work Packages, and Construction Work Packages. An EWP should bealigned with the construction sequence and priorities.
Procurement Packages,Manufacturing Work Packages, Installation Work Packages, and/or ConstructionWork Packages can be dependent on more than one EWP. · Procurement Work PackageA Procurement Work Package (PWP)includes the sequence of work steps or process in awarding contracts or theprocurement of necessary resources on a Project.A good example would be aProcurement Package for detailed designing and manufacturing of structuralsteel. Where the process could take up to 12 months (plus) to fully deliver.
Such a process would (typically) require progress assessments, performancemeasurements, and status reporting. · Manufacturing Work PackageManufacturing Work Package (MWP) includes the sequence of work steps orprocesses for the manufacturing of equipment and systems to be used orinstalled on a project. Depending on the project, a MWP can represent themanufacturing of a single major tagged item or multiple smaller tagged items. · Supply Work PackageA Supply Work Package (SWP) includesthe sequence of work steps or processes of supplying plant or equipment to beused or installed on a project. The difference between the SWP and the MWP isthat the SWP does not include manufacturing work and only ordering and supplyingof equipment (“off-the-shelf”) by a contractor or (“free-issue”) by anorganization. · Logistical Work PackageA Logistical Work Package (LWP)includes the sequence of work steps or processes of transporting equipment ormaterial to site. · Construction Work PackageA Construction Work Package (CWP) defines alogical and manageable division of construction works within a Control Account.In general, it is recommended to develop CWPs by discipline.
However, a CWP maybe defined by area or as otherwise determined by the project. Control Accountson large projects will likely contain multiple CWPs.Typically, CWPs represent earthworks,civil construction or structural erection works that need to be carried out onsite.The division of construction workis defined such that a CWP does not overlap with the same or other disciplinedCWPs within the same area or Control Account. · Installation Work PackageAn Installation Work Package (IWP)represents scope of work of any onsite installation work, e.g. mechanicalequipment installation.
This type of Work Package generally includes thecommissioning of the equipment or plant being installed. However, if theproject requires it, the commissioning of the equipment/plant can be separatedinto a separate Work Package and labelled as a Commissioning Work Package.It is recommended that allelements necessary to complete the scope of the IWP should be organized anddelivered before work is started.As with CWPs, the division ofinstallation work is defined such that IWPs do not overlap with the same orother disciplined IWPs within the same area or Control Account. · Planning PackageConversionTheconversion of Planning Packages to Work Packages over a period of time isreferred to as the “Rolling Wave Planning” concept. This requires that aPlanning Package be converted to a more detailed Work Package, 6 months beforeits planned start date.Thediagram below demonstrates Planning Packages (PP) being converted to WorkPackages (WP), while still forming part of the Performance Measurement Baseline(PMB).
