The development of our training courses is a collaborative effort between subject matter experts, educational consultants, professional instructional designers, industry volunteers and courseware producers.
This course is designed to provide a skill set that will help to address problems related to traditional construction planning. Workface Planning as a process emphasizes the development of small manageable work packages for construction projects. Workface Planning training helps with getting the right things, to the right people, at the right place so that work crews can perform safe, effective, and efficient work.
The Workface Planning model emphasizes the pushing of planning earlier into the project to support efforts at the field level, and is supported by various tools including rules, scorecard, flowchart, and templates. How to implement all the main elements of a COAA-compliant WFP Model; Composition of a Field Installation Work Package; Effects of traditional construction approach and a WFP approach; Benefits of WFP and the importance of all elements of the COAA WFP Model.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to articulate the requirements of an effective WorkFace Planning system and will be prepared to work as a WorkFace Planner.
This 4 day workshop is targeted primarily at members of the Workface Planning (WFP) team, WFP leads, WF planners and material and equipment coordinators. It will also be of interest to employees directly involved in WFP at Owner, Constructor, Engineering and EPCM companies and any individuals interested in developing a working knowledge of WFP.
It should be noted that participants are assumed to already possess skills to estimate, read and prepare isometric drawings, and have developed trade related skills prior to attending the course.
This 1/2 day (four hour) workshop is targeted primarily at executive and manager-level individuals and associated staff in Owner, Constructor, Engineering, EPCM and EPC companies. Employees not directly involved in WFP at these same companies will also benefit from this introductory workshop.
Participants will gain understanding of: Problems associated with traditional construction planning and execution; Potential benefits of WFP related to costs, predictability and productivity; Basic principles of WFP and tools for implementing WFP (rules, scorecard and templates);How WFP improves project outcomes.
