Despite many advances in lift technology there are several areas of lift design that are still costly for lift owners and lift manufacturers. It is intended to briefly explore these areas with some historical examples as a spur to furthering research and improving the management of lifts during their life. Two drivers of lift design advances are ride comfort requirements and reduction of energy consumption. Maintenance is driver of cost that can be better controlled.
