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: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
