Open Workbench is an open source, Windows PC application for project scheduling. It is freeware, with no limitations on the number of users. It allows project planning for complete projects, including sub-projects with all their various dependencies. Schedules of tasks can be made automatically or manually, and linked as desired. Resources, whether people, equipment, or financial, can be defined and assigned. Projects can be reviewed with the help of GANTT and PERT charts, and various comparisons can be made. Baseline settings can be changed to reflect major project changes.

Review Criterias

Pros Planning options are the key strength of Open Workbench, particularly in comparison with other free project management tools. Open Workbench provides a fully-developed planning algorithm (not released as open-source!) and some important planning and contolling features like baselining, work profiles, critical path, earned value, and variance analysis.
Cons I don't like the UI.
Conclusion This project-management package is aimed at the demanding planner. While its navigation and “look and feel” may spoil the fun initially, this tool offers very good support for planning. In particular, when the duration of a given task matches the estimated work remaining and the current availability of employees, Open Workbench provides good support for the project leader. In contrast with MS Project, the user can trace the calculation of the schedule at any time, and the schedule can be deactivated for individual activities.
