   Workface Planning Definition
• Workface Planning is the process of organizing and
  delivering all the elements necessary, before work is
  started, to enable craft persons to perform quality
  work in a safe, effective and efficient manner.

“There is sufficient evidence to conclude that workface planning, as developed
 by the COAA steering committee, contributes to higher project performance.”
