Knowledge Managment Tools – OpenProj

Doing project planning is great when your at the office (or in my case the computer lab) where they have the licenced software. I know that some small and medium sized businesses have to make difficult decisions regarding just how many licenses to purchase. OpenProj solves some of the problems relating to Microsoft Project. OpenProj is an open-source alternative to Microsoft Project, capable of opening and generating the files used. This software produces very nice GANTT charts, allows you to visually estimate time needed for each phase of a project and allows you to set a ‘critical path’, the list of actions that must happen in order to complete the project.

OpenProj is free for individual use, but has a hosted version available that allows multiple access and version control for a small subscription fee.
