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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
