Open Workbench (www.openworkbench.org) can be used and distributed free of charge. It is a stand-alone desktop application that provides robust project scheduling functionality. Thus it requires installation.
Open Workbench provides the unique ability to generate project schedules based on resource constraints. It can also be used in a fully integrated fashion with CA's Clarity solution.
