I'm about to enter my final year and I'm as part of my course I have to do a "Practical Project". The one which interests me the most (from work I did on my placement) was a Project Management tool. What annoyed me was that there was no easy way for me to get hold of the Timeline, deadlines, milestones, what was coming up next etc... because the project manager was invariably busy. So my idea is to make a web based project management tool which goes from the start of the project (i.e. the initial ideas) right through the planning stages, the timelines, the development, the testing, the deployment and the aftercare. Unfortunately, I have had very limited experience with existing project management tools. So what I would like to know is what existing tools are available? Both Open Source and Propriety. Has anyone had experience with these tools? What are there advantages? What are there disadvantages? What niggles you about the tools and so on? Obviously anyone who gives me help may be cited in my final report (please let me know if you don't want to be) so I may need to contact you for your full name (again, please let me know if you don't) Any help is much appreciated, feel free to contact me by PM.
