    definition of DWP

    Hello,

    This thread is about one of crane-related definitions and it reads as follows.

    design working period
    DWP
    operation period in a specific actual duty, within which the design duty is reached

    Although the whole definition is written in English, it is double Dutch to me.

    I think that whoever wrote that should start over.
    Not a professional teacher

    Re: definition of DWP

    By googling, I found the following:

    "Design Working Period (DWP) is a term used for the period measured in hours of use from commissioning to the end of design life. Beyond this design life limit, a crane or hoist must be considered unsafe to use unless certain actions are taken."—quoted from https://www.crane1.com/about-us/blog...-last-forever/
    I am not a teacher.
