Abstract
Planning multiple heavy lifts on heavy industrial projects has a major impact on construction sequencing, scheduling, budgeting and safety. Hence it has to be planned carefully to reduce the risk and to reduce the cost and duration of the projects. Traditional planning techniques are quite unproductive as they use iterative and trail and error techniques. This paper discusses the work done towards development of computer aided multiple heavy lift planning system. The features of the software tool developed on AutoCAD platform includes- selection of cranes, crane location identification, 3D simulation of the multiple lifts and 4D representation of the site. The system developed is evaluated by using a case study. The features of the software like crane location, 3D simulation are evaluated using 25 lifts.
