At Fiatech this past week, the Voice of the Owner drove attention to Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) and its significant impact on CAPEX and OPEX. Leading owner/operators talked about these benefits in glowing terms. Owner/Operator consensus on the significant opportunities associated with Fiatech’s Leadership Initiatives on Productivity Advancement Targets (PATs) continue to bring the need for a step-change in performance improvements to the forefront of Project Delivery. Participants acknowledged that many of the PATs were tightly coupled to AWP and other associated methodologies. Overall, there was a call to action for the industry to embrace this new performance revolution that is ready to sweep the industry. It is all about being part of the future or falling behind.
