Programming construction works never been easier
Kommentare: With this software I could present all my projects in the construction industry, such as the construction of the guard house and the garbage room for a building. I could tell my customers how to reach the schedule time of delivery of works, the critical activities during the construction and the relation of advance of construction vs down payments. All the tools allows me to explain clearly and detailed to my customers every cent they invest on the construction work and where is it.
Vorteile: The easy commands of the software allows me to program construction works, phases, activities and staff associated to each one of them and the Gantt Chart schedule. Also I can calculate, cost and program down payments along with the works advance charts. With the Gantt chart schedule, help me to compare the programed construction works with the real construction execution, allowing me to adjust every day the needs of the work in order to finished the construction work at time or even better, to improve the time for finished the contract.
Nachteile: I need to implement lot of information about the construction staff hourly cost, I Include others costs like materials, transportation and equipment just to achieve a real value of cost, but I would like if every one of this elements could under the consideration of the developers in order to make a most flexible and adaptable software to construction industry, it will be a big improvement.

Project Libre is extremely useful as a possible software solution alternative to Microsoft Project where unique compatibility is not strictly required.
Kommentare: Download freely and easy to use......if there aren't constraints requiring Microsoft Project implementation......Project Libre will suit quite well to creating new projects across the widest file categories and project types .....at our company we are extremely happy with Project Libre's flexibility and ease of use. It is quite intuitive to operate as well. Project Libre is a welcome software solution as an addition to our operating environment. Project Libre absolutely helped our company organize our file project load, as well as allowing us to use fewer organization software solutions. Keep in mind it is freeware so there is a lack of readily available direct online customer service support however one can access online tutorials quite readily from existing user forums. This user support is most helpful....we would recommend Project Libres use to any company and users interested.
Extremely easy to use , Project Libre supports a wide variety of tasks including scope, time, and budget needed to create our local projects for company use.
The software is supported on all major OS platforms including MAC OS, Linux, and MS Windows.
Nachteile: Project Libre projects can take some time to load when the project sizes are larger and there is a relative lack of customer support, but we believe that is to be expected when dealing with an open source and freeware software......not much to dislike frankly. Be aware that plenty of curated user community specific online support materials exist and are most helpful.

Excellent alternative to MS Project, more portable and good XML support.
Kommentare: I'm able to do project management tasks, ranging from small quick tasks to extracting the critical path and progress towards milestones of many-thousand line projects, easily and from a variety of computer stations without having an expensive license that is locked to a single machine.
For anybody learning how to use project management software for school or other uses, starting with ProjectLibre is an excellent choice.
The most valuable capability for ProjectLibre is that it performs every task that somebody already familiar with Microsoft Project can, and the more standardized (compared to the varieties and versions of MS Project) interface actually makes it more practically usable.
The other major advantage is that all versions of ProjectLibre appropriately handle XML export and import, which cannot be said of many versions of MS Project.
The only real drawbacks are that it doesn't integrate with many other office utility applications. The real advantage in my daily use of the MS Project offering is that it will interface with MS Project Server, which is only realistically relevant if you're already locked into the MS suite of tools.
The UI isn't as polished as high-dollar offerings, and in some cases it requires searching through third-party support documentation to figure out what's actually going on in some situations.

Vorteile: If you can throw away everything you know about other spreadsheet services when you use Projectlibre, it will be easy to pick up and understand. You have to remember that while it looks similar to a spreadsheet, it is an entirely different platform with different purpose and functionalities. Once you get into the hang of it, Projectlibre will make managing projects and resources a breeze. Another pro about this software is that there are tons of help videos and articles online if you ever get stuck.
Nachteile: What we least liked about Projectlibre was the large learning curves for newcomers. It took a little while to get the hang of and understand what some of the prompts mean.

A Cost Effective Project Management Tool.

Vorteile: Projectlibre is tool that is being used across the entire organization. We use it in tracking of projects and allows us to keep organized when having multiple projects. One thing that makes it our preferred option is that it cost effective and also has a user friendly interface.More to that i like it s hierarchical organization of projects.
Nachteile: Though the interface is use friendly, i think it is little bit old and need some updating. I also wish the editing and graphics features updated.

A good alternative for low budget planning projects
1) Visual help for Project scheduling
2) Resource administration easiness
3) Timelines for tasks and complete project
Vorteile: This software lets you manage projects with a reasonable level of complexity, such as having multiple tasks simultaneously, specific task/job completion dates, predeceasing tasks, and resource managing, by providing you with a good set of reports and data views that may vary from a simple lines and columns table, up to a Gantt chart (a tasks & calendar arrange),and ultimately a critical path diagram.
Nachteile: When entering records for the tasks of the project, the program has an issue when trying to make a correction in a cell (mainly a text one like the task name/description), if you make a "typo", and you try to delete the letter by using the "Back space" key, it may delete the whole line instead of the typo. This is time consuming since it makes you have to start entering the record all over again.

A good alternative to Microsoft Project for Gantt charts and project management tool
Kommentare: We have been able to share and communicate timelines with the teams and clients. Also, with ProjectLibre we cam estimate critical tasks and dates of the projects.
Vorteile: Although is an open source free tool, ProjectLibre has many options and is relatively easy to use. I like the ability to change the views from Gantt to WBS or Resource usage. Yo can easily define tasks, predecessors tasks and assign resources. Also, you can configure the calendar and export to PDF making it easy to share with clients.
Nachteile: Sometimes, when trying to create new tasks, all the diagram mess up and it is almost impossible to relink all the tasks again. Also the interface could improved a lot.

Aims to replace Microsoft Project, for free
Kommentare: We don't pay for Microsoft Project so we have been trying this. It does not really replace MS Project I am told by our PMEs. But it still is a powerful too once you have learned where to set up all your settings and get proficient enough to get what you want done but there is a lot to learn. I have moved on to simpler software like the GanttProject but this is still the gold standard for free, open source project software.
Vorteile: This software is free! Also, it is very stable and has been around enough to have a good help online and it is easy to import and export.
Nachteile: There is a steep learning curve. So many different ways to make your project plan, and what resources, and charts and how long the work day is or week etc. And it takes a while to find where all these different features/settings are at.

An affordable yet complete Project Management tool
Kommentare: I did not have the budget to use MS Project but I needed to use a PM softaware, so I did.
Vorteile: It allows you to create columns for every piece information you need (deviation rates, resources added, etc) and make your calculations with your dates and deadlines. Basically, you can make your entire Gantt with ease, and offer almost the same experience if you were working with MS Project.
Nachteile: Its UI is not attractive and sometimes it crashes without any reason whatsoever. Also you need to be familiar with PM terms and tactics or you will be lost using this software. Export capabilities are poor and you are left with the responsibility of understanding where is what if you want the software to work for you.

Kommentare: I like it, graphically is nice and all the functions and tools give the Gantt chart a very simple look.
Vorteile: I liked the simplicity of the use, I used this for a class to explain how Gantt charts work and it was really interesting to all students.
Nachteile: Even when it is a simple tool to manage and administrate task in a timeline it will not work for a company, because it is just the Gantt chart with dependencies, so if you are looking for a complete software it will not be helpful.

Projectlibre has made life easier for me, since it has allowed planning at low cost.
Jean carlos J.
Vorteile: The ease with which we can perform the analysis of resource management through the option histogram, and that allows to see the graph of use of each resource and compare it with its availability, is what I like the most since with that information it can be decided if it is necessary to increase the availability of the resource or redistribute its allocation .
Nachteile: What I like the least is that I have tried to create a single resource base for several projects and to indicate when I have a resource conflict but I have not managed to carry out this action.
