Project management application RationalPlan is a great alternative to Microsoft Project with some extra-features like multi project management (only for Multi Project version). It offers you the most important capabilities of a good project management software while being able to operate on various platforms starting with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and all other Java enabled platforms. We’ve build RationalPlan with ergonomy in mind: no fussing dialog windows will prompt unless strictly necessary, timescale zoom is a mouse-wheel roll away without having to reach for the dedicated icons (though the icons are also available) or you can shift to a different time frame by simply dragging the “focus area”. A special “zoom focus point marker” was implemented to allow users to zoom without loosing the “interest area” from sight – the marker will fix the time point during the zoom actions. Apart from the well known Gantt Chart view we also provide a separate Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) view to help you focus on the very important task of breaking down the project rather than distracting your attention to other issues that would only come up at a later stage.
