Relationships with occupations

Essential skill

Maximise efficiency of crane operations is an essential skill of the following occupations:

Ship planner: Ship planners manage the performance of a vessel. They ensure the safety of the vessel and its cargo, its operationality and link available vessels to available cargos in order to maximise the profitability of the voyages. They ensure that each container ship is loaded to its optimal capacity, while keeping berth times and handling costs to a minimum. They also plan the maintenance and overhaul of the ship, as well as the crew needed.

Optional skill

Maximise efficiency of crane operations is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Briquetting machine operator: Briquetting machine operators tend equipment to dry, mix, and compress metal chips into briquettes for use in a smelter.
