Mark, et al., I’ve been following this conversation on NM Users with interest when you ask about a more user friendly interface and wondered if you had ever looked at Phoenix WinNonlin’s NLME module and it’s capabilities? I can’t send you the attachments on the NM user list but as we just release version 8.1 there will be a webinar today, 11 am EDT 6th June; registration link.<>
It has a GUI, flexible mapping of input data to model , and a very powerful language (PML) that we support with good documentation, training as well as regular webinars and a forum;

Additionally there is a model building can be performed from drop downs, graphical or textual mode. AS well as built-in run options for Covariate selection, bootstrapping, VPC etc. And the option to use it as a dashboard to launch lined R, SAS, PsN, NONMEM etc. runs

If you want to take a look in using this at your organisation then feel free to drop me a line.
 Best regards,
PS sorry Joe, UI is only on Windows but NLME itself is more than happy to run in command line on Unix, there are also various R projects to pre- and post-process it if you would prefer that.

Subject: Re: [NMusers] [Suggest] NONMEM adds UTF-8 support for csv files

Hi Joe and Sebastien,

Thank you for your feedback. Microsoft software is surely not my favorite platform; However, I have to stick with MS due to the policy for the organization computer I use.

I agree with Sebastien that there are some easy workarounds. It is indeed easy on an individual basis, but it can be substantial efforts if accumulated for all NONMEM users. NONMEM has more than a decade history; why couldn’t it be made more robust, versatile and user-friendly?

Even if the new feature requested doesn’t benefit every end-user immediately, it might be useful one day. UFT-8 BOM csv files are widely supported by csv viewers, which speaks for their value in some scenarios. Why couldn’t it be supported by NONMEM as well? The most successful software are typically those constantly evolving and adapting to meet users rather than those ignoring users feedback and calling them to make an adaption.
