our basic version – a must have for your job-site-planning

Our base module provides the user, with an addition to a project management, numerous new selection methods. This helps find the best combination from thousands quickly, or even also from hundreds of thousands of possible set-ups from the selected cranes for your schedule. 

The user can decide whether he wants to select the configuration directly, because he knows what he needs, or use the search optimized selection via radius, load and height. Another way is an automated search via a definable self-interference contour or building. The examination of the particular capacities and thus the feasibility is determined during runtime. 

The operation of the system is very easily and intuitively by symbol buttons which are self-explanatory. We have chosen the same terms, names or abbreviations, for the selection of the combinations, as specified by the respective manufacturers. Everyone who knows his crane - also knows these names. 

All data / load charts are based on the original load charts of the respective manufacturers, as well as the geometry data. It is possible to examine one or a whole fleet of cranes to the make the best choice for the project. All projects are automatically saved while you work with the software and will be available for further planning or modifications at any time. 

If a crane is selected and opened at the control window, all movements and modifications concerning a radius, an angle, a new position, a rotation, etc. the load charts will be constantly examined by the system and the calculation for the outrigger loadings and/or ground pressures² will be done simultaneously and displayed with every movement or change. Also occurring overloads, over or below the permitted work range (radius) are identified by suitable warning signs. 

This part of the software can be used as a stand -alone license, if a real 3D CAD drawing is not important to you.

²if enabled by the respective manufacturers. 

FURTHER NEW FUNCTIONS


Arbitrary design of your user interface

•  Choose your favorite from different themes.
•  Use the project browser, as you use the windows explorer.
•  Rename your selected cranes in your project very easy. Instead of counting numbers - 1,2,3 ...etc.
    simply in "my crane", "your crane", "our crane" .... etc. 

Extensive enhancements in the general settings

•  Chose if you want to use manufacturers colors of the cranes, or change them individually or permanent.
•  A new choice of calculating for the outrigger loadings (point load) in t, kg or kN in the metric system.
    Resp. in klb/ft², psi or psf in the U.S. imperial system.
•  A new choice for the calculation of ground pressures in t/m² or kN/m² in the metric system.
    Resp. in klb/ft², psi or psf in the U.S. imperial system.
•  Save your personal user profile and all your settings of the tools, to get them back at any time 
    or for to transfer to another computer. 

Extended and improved crane list

•  Group your list of cranes by manufacturers, crane type, or capacity.
•  Sort your list of cranes by loads, tip-heights, max-radii or according to the manufacturer's description. 

Extended and improved crane configuration menu

•  New search constraints, such as "D" (Delta - minimum distance between the hook block to the boom tip)
    Herewith you can determine your required minimum distance between the hook block and the boom tip.
    This ensures, that the next selection steps because of your selected crane, particularly if you work in
    critical heights, always provides the minimum required distance between this points
•  Pre-setting for load / capacity reserves in %. This make sure, if your planning requires this extra capacity
    i.eg 10% above the actual load, so this additional capacity will be available at any time.
