Evaluating Open Source Project Management Tools using OSSPal Methodology

Antonio Oliveira, Jorge Bernardino


One of the major differences between a successful project and a failed one is the project management abilities. Project management leads to better alignment of projects within the business’ strategy, so that companies can reduce their costs, accelerate product development, and focus on meeting their customers’ needs. To help with that, project management tools are highly recommended, once they ease planning, scheduling, resource allocation, communication and documentation tasks. In this paper, we assess three popular open source project management tools: OpenProject, Orangescrum and ProjectLibre with the help of the OSSPal methodology. This study can help project managers and programmers on choosing an adequate, current, high quality and affordable tool to perform their projects.
