Target Skills 10 years Anniversary

by jbouquet July 17, 2012

Hello Everyone, during this summer 2012, from July 9th until August 10th, Target Skills celebrates its 10th birthday.

For this occasion, we offer a summer discount for the 50 first orders! More information on our website.

The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value

by jbouquet April 23, 2012

Behind this farfetched message lies only a date format incompatibility with the database. It is also possible that you got this message in french:

To bypass this blocking message, you will need, depending on the database type you use and depending on the language settings you have on your computer, to create an entry in your registry:

First open your Windows Registry and find the folder:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Target Skills\PLanningPME] or [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Target Skills\PLanningPME] if you are using a 64bits operating system. 

The create a New -> DWORD 32 bits.

If you use a MS Access database :  
name this DWORD 'FR' and set its value to '1' (0x00000001)

If you use a SQL Server database :  
name this DWORD 'US' and set its value to '1' (0x00000001)

Then close and reopen PlanningPME.

If you still have this message after doing these modifications, feel free to contact us.

Why should I opt for a SQL database ?

by jbouquet April 20, 2012

As we keep on developing new applications for new platforms and environments, we always make sure that our applications are compatible with a SQL database.

Why do we make this choice?

In application with PlanningPME, in terms of data protection, data security, performances and compatibility, a SQL database tops all systems. This is why all our applications can be bound to a SQL Server / SQL database.

Advantages of owning a SQL database with PlanningPME :

- More than 10 planners can use the schedule at the same time. Even if you need more people to access the schedule simultaneously, PlanningPME and SQL can manage all these concurrent accesses.
- SQL processes a very large amount of data very quickly. Your database can grow bigger and bigger, the performances remain the same.
- No extra migration cost (850€) if you need to use PlanningPME Web Access or PlanningPME Mobile. All the databases we host for our customers are SQL databases.

Drawbacks of the SQL system:

- Small delay after any operation on the database : creation, deletion of a task etc... (<1s)
- Database maintenance required, and SQL knowledge required for the technicians
- The database is not accessible via a single file, but by a connection string, or a customized shortcut

However, you might already have a defined data environment within your company. This is why PlanningPME is compatible with all these database types.

Production Planning

by cdeschamps March 2, 2011

PlanningPME can now be used as an easy-to-use production planning.

You can define easily the different kind of templates you have while doing your planning: A template is composed of successive tasks with different durations. You can even assign by default each activity to one particular resource.

Then, while doing your planning, you can start from one of your template (instead of creating each task one by one) and have your job drawn in just some clicks.

The planner will then just need to drag and drop his jobs from one resource to another depending on availability and workload.

Watch this planning production video to know more:

This type of production planning is suitable for installation companies (kitchen or bathroom installation for example) but also garage planning, project scheduling etc... Indeed, for each new order, always the same planning steps follow and the solution provided by Target Skills allow you to save time and have a good visual and graphical planning. Assigning your jobs to your employees is just fast via a drag and drop. You can even have a search for availability and a check to avoid double booking.
