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.

is anyone aware of a simple method of calculating a crane hook analysis on Asta Powerproject?

i have a basic spreadsheet which works but with more resource now being put into asta programmes i'm looking for an easier option.

Hi Daren - Welcome to Planning Planet

Next time please only tap the "save" button once.

If you have calculated the number of hooks required on a spreadsheet you will also know the tasks in your programme that need cranage.

I create a permanent resource called "hooks" and allocate the number required to each task. I then run a histogram to see if the programmed hooks excede the maximum number at any given time.

With this information you will be informed of upcoming bottlenecks and arrange accordingly.

Avoid the temtation to run a resource levelling option on hooks because this will screw up your programme in nano seconds.

Best regards
