Abstract: "Many engineering applications involve the problem of a dynamic loading property which is often hard to track and critical in design analysis. The winch-lift design learning software developed in this work incorporates the graphical display of dynamic loading on the cable or rope of the winch lift within the first seconds of its operation. The learning software allows the user to generate a profile of this load and its acceleration against time in order to obtain the maximum value of the load to be borne by the whole unit. This feature is underplayed in most engineering software which usually uses the static total nominal load for simplicity. The overall program flow is in three sections based on the software architecture. They are the study, practice and the assessment sessions. At the validation stage, the results generated were compared with those obtained by numerical procedures in literature. The results were in the same range with differences in values of the order 0.1%. In conclusion, a learning software for exploring motorized winch systems has been developed in this work. "
