Free standing jib cranes are one of the materials handling equipment used intensively. Various design standards are available for design of jib crane, which helps designer to choose appropriate design parameters. Numbers of analysis techniques are available for design and validation of jib crane elements. In this paper an attempt has been made to optimize the length of boom support leg of free standing jib crane having capacity of 1Ton. With the help of FEM software i.e. ANSYS 15, by using trial and error method, it is found that, stresses developed in crane were minimum when length of leg boom support equals to near about 1/3rd of column height.
