Using a scientifically based research model, P-Metrx is a computer-based management program that provides a step-by-step Improvement Planning process.  Once implemented, the web-based application provides total operational command from any computer screen.  Internet-based programming allows analysis of multiple objectives, determination of operational constraints and an ability to effectively control resources.
The primary objective of P-Metrx is to build capacity by assisting organizations to think strategically, design objective, standards-based systems and reliance upon data-informed decision making.  Building capacity must focus on development of sustainable, systems-based approaches that allow organizations to run efficiently.  Essential operational factors may include key functional processes and the composition of the management structure, addressing factors that influence how the organization operates.
Performance Planning:
In most operational environment, each functional level faces a different version of the same overall problem.  As a result, the concept “Improvement at Scale” implies not just to improvements in a single system or management level, but rather throughout the organization.  It is also characterized as improvement at a defined rate and across many highly varied contexts.  Improvement is therefore change, with a specific and unified direction, sustained over time that moves the entire organization to improved performance while minimizing variations in efficiency among individual management functions. 
Performance Planning is an investigative process that provides data and analysis leading to credible management competence.  The process is used to align resources and focus efforts on identifying, managing, evaluating and improving internal operational processes aligned to quantified outcome objectives and functional priorities.  Values to key characteristics of any organization must be defined and quantified against universal performance indicators for analysis, comparison, etc. to demonstrate measurable improvements overtime. 
As a mathematical model possessing quantified outcome objectives, managers are able to influence both the structure and dynamics of the entire organization and enhance their ability to achieve stated goals.  Performance Metrics is a system-wide analysis process resembling a comprehensive problem-solving exercise over-time.
