An automated system for planning heavy and critical lifts using cranes has been developed. The developed module provides 2D and 3D graphics to support the visualization of the planned lift from start to completion. The developed system integrates 3D graphics, a selection module, and three databases. The 3D graphics module was developed using AutoCAD 3-D Solids. A case example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the developed methodology in avoiding potential accidents and in reducing the time and cost associated with the planning of heavy and critical lifts on construction sites.
