Target Skills’ PlanningPME©snips the red tape away

27.04.2005


Target Skills of France has launched its scheduling management software, PlanningPME©. This multilingual scheduling management tool is highly adaptable and, therefore, suitable for use by all types of companies. With PlanningPME©, companies can eliminate unnecessary paperwork and cumbersome scheduling boards. In addition, modifications will no longer result in endless crossings-outs and corrections. As part of its export growth strategy, Target Skills is seeking international partners for the promotion and distribution of the PlanningPME© software package.



The multilingual software (French, German, English, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish) enables companies to manage scheduling easily and, in just one click, provides an accurate global view of human and material resource use in real time. Target Skills has made a downloadable trial version of PlanningPME© available for free at www.planningpme.com. The website includes several pre-set schedules (by type or by sector) as well as a range of simple, detailed function cards.

The PlanningPME© tool is suitable for a variety of business situations due to the high level of adaptability that has been built into the software. Work days and shifts may be personalised and additional fields may be added. It is also possible to import existing databases.


With its high performance levels and user-friendliness, PlanningPME© makes it possible for any company to organise and consult resources (employees, subcontractors, vehicles, machines, facilities, etc.) and business activities (tasks, appointments, customer projects, periods of unavailability) while eliminating the need to enter information more than once.

The tool offers a number of advantages, including a user-friendly graphical interface, a wide range of available functions, such as searchable human and physical resource availability (tasks to complete, schedules, appointments, scheduled operations, calculation of hours worked, absences due to annual holidays, etc.), and the use of filters, which enable users to display only the schedule of a particular customer or project. In addition, the dual schedule/agenda function makes it possible to manage long-term projects as well as one-off events.

The ’synchronisation’ function may be used to generate an HTML version of a given schedule. Regardless of where they are located, employees and partners can consult and print schedules in real time. The constant updating of scheduling information and a unique ’locking’ feature, which ensures a given user may not make changes to a task while another user is in the process of making changes, eliminates double-bookings. The software also offers local or remote network solutions, subject to personalised feasibility studies by Target Skills.

PlanningPME© runs in Access and is compatible with various Microsoft Windows versions (Windows 95, 98, 98 SE, NT4, Millennium, 2000, XP). The software is also compatible with Oracle, MySQL and SQL-Server. PlanningPME© can also be used with the agenda feature in Outlook and with dynamic tables in Excel.

The multilingual team at Target Skills aims to satisfy the needs of its international clientele by offering practical tips for the use of PlanningPME© and the latest developments to the software. As part of its role as training provider, Target Skills also offers in-company and e-learning solutions.

As part of its export growth strategy, Target Skills is currently seeking new partners for the promotion and distribution of the PlanningPME© software package outside of France.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
