Failed Lifts Report (lift data from crane placements)
Tool summary :
- Outputs a report that provides lift information on failed lifts from each placement in the model which has a failed lift.
- For a crawler crane (not shown above), " Boom " and " Boom Length " are reported instead of " Jib length " and " Reeving Mode ."
- See the step-by-step instructions .
Licensing: Crane Reports require a license. Without that license, commands found in the ' Model -- Crane ' group are not available in the SDS2 Detailing program.

- Lift Information (used in this documentation for comparison with this report)
How to output a Failed Lifts Report :
You need to have assigned lifts to a crane placement before you can output this report. To assign lifts to a placement, you can Assign Member Lifts or use tools such as Check/Assign Load Lift or Check/Assign Multi Lift .
Method 1 : Home > Reports > System Reports > Cranes > Failed Lifts Report .
Method 3 : Click the Failed Lifts Report icon. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Reports ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning). Ribbon configuration is done using Customize Interface .
Alternative 1 : Press the " Yes " button to output a report based on those lifts which have been assigned to crane placements. Go step 2.
Alternative 2 : Press " No " to cancel this operation. Do not continue.
|The entries you make on this window to " Company " " Project Name " " Project # " " Location " and " Contractor " will be printed in the header of the Failed Lifts Report . Leaving " Company " and " Contractor " blank omits those fields from the report.|
Alternative 1 : Select the export format that you want, then press the " Export " button. You can select ' text (.txt) ' or ' CSV (.csv) ' or ' PDF (.pdf) ' as the export format. A text file can be read by word processors and text editors. A CSV file can be read by spread sheet programs. CSV stands for "comma-separated values." A PDF file can be read by a web browser. PDF stands for "portable document format." Go to step 4.
Alternative 2 : Press the " View " button to output the report to the report viewer ( Output-Request Summary ). You can view the report on your computer screen, then optionally save it to a file. Go to step 4.
Alternative 3 : Press the " Close " button to close this window without outputting a report. Do not continue.
4 . After the Failed Lifts Report is output to the destination you selected in the previous step, a new Failed Lifts Report window opens. Follow the instructions for alternative 1 or 2 in step 3 to output another copy of this report to, for example, a different file type or different destination. Press the " Close " button when you are done outputting the report.
Failed Lifts Report
Project: The " Project Name " that you entered in step 3 .
Project #: The " Project # " that you entered in step 3 .
Location: The " Location " that you entered in step 3 .
Contractor: The " Contractor " that you entered in step 3 .
Jib length: The " Jib length " of a tower crane.
Boom: The " Boom " of a crawler crane.
Boom length: The " Boom length " of a crawler crane.
Reeving mode: The " Reeving mode " of a tower crane.
Cranes (Placements): The placements assigned to the crane.
Line: The line used for the lift. See " Line " in Lift Information .
Load: The weight of the load. See " Load weight " in Lift Information .
% Capacity: The percentage of the crane's capacity that is the weight of the load. Since this lift is a failed lift, the reported " % Capacity " may exceed 100%. See " % Capacity " in Lift Information .
Placement: The crane placement that this lift is associated with.
Radius: The horizontal distance from the center of rotation of the crane to the load hook while the crane is loaded and the load hook is in vertical alignment with the pick point or set point. This is reported for both the pick point and the set point of the lift. See " Radius " in Lift Information .
Sheave height: The sheave height is reported for both the pick point and the set point of the lift. See " Sheave height " in Lift Information .
For a user-defined lift ("load lift"), such as in the example at the top of this page, the first comment will be the " User-defined: " followed by the user-entered " Description " of the user-defined lift. See " Description " in Lift Information .
If the " Calc at radius " is for the pick point, the report will generate a comment that says, " Governed by pick point ."
FAIL: A fail " Message " such as ' Lift radius at pick ' or ' Lift radius at set ' or ' Lift height at pick ' or ' Stability/strength capacity at pick ' or ' Hoist capacity at pick ' or ' Hoist capacity at set ' may be reported here.
Calc at radius: The adjusted capacity calculation at the set point or the pick point. See " Adjusted capacity calculation " in Lift Information .
If the calculation reported here is for the pick point, a " Comment " on the report will say " Governed by pick point ."
