Conventional monitoring technologies have the limitation to monitor because the extensive arrangement of the sensing system has caused many problems such as the increase of costs, difficult in arrangement, inconvenient maintenance, massive amounts of data, etc. To overcome this limitation, it is necessary to obtain new monitoring technology which is able to quickly analyze crane structure and its vulnerable area (or weakest link), and take the reasonable arrangement to sensing system. Therefore in this paper, we proposed the vulnerability analysis method and implementation of crane health monitoring based on vulnerability theory and methodology, such as the importance and redundancy coefficient, determination of failure mode and search of failure path, indeterminacy of static and kinematic, strain energy and flow potential, etc. Also we evaluated the effectiveness of our proposed method through the numerical example.
