Abstract: This paper presents a method, and some utilities, for establishing a planning and control system for the management of a computer centre. This planning system provides the conditions for optimal use and availability of the centre|s resources. The system|s structure is modular and extendible. It defines modules for establishing plans. It also creates automatic modules for monitoring and routine task execution according to the plan|s imperatives. It has the ability to balance the redistribution of resources. Both the originality of its conception and the ease with which it can be set up make this system applicable to a large number of engineering domains, and especially to those with complex operations that need planning and real time monitoring.

Keywords: computer centre management; real time monitoring; optimal control; planning; SIGAR; resource management; computer centres.
