The modernization and retrofitting of lifts in a large building presents unique challenges. Current trends in offices, such as flexible working times and workplaces, overpopulated office floors and increased communication requirements, can initiate lift modernization, which aims at keeping the building competitive. The requirements of lift modernization vary case by case according to the building type, the condition of equipment and the data available from the existing installation. This article describes three levels of people flow analysis and their benefits to customers. The levels require an increasing involvement to acquire data and perform analysis. This article can also be used as a handbook for choosing the proper level of analysis for a particular modernization project.
