Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hello Fellow Planners,

Has anyone ever produced a detailed crane lift program?

Anyone experienced a contractor who submits one?

Any examples of the above would be appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation,

Craig Adams

Hi Craig

Have a look at my recent post on Hook Time

Best regards

Hi Craig,

when we simulate the construction works cranes are assigned to different activities part time. Their percent workload is defined as the ratio of total time of crane usage on some activity to the shift duration. At some activities crane not only lifts but also holds. Resource leveling creates the schedule where cranes are not overloaded though the order of work inside each shift is not defined.

The crane work schedule is practical if you plan the works for short periods like the next shift. Is this your task?
