Open Workbench

If you are looking for Open Workbench, you have come to the right place. We explain what Open Workbench is and point you to the official download.

What is Open Workbench?

Open Workbench was a program developed by Niku (later CA Technologies) to serve as a free substitute for Microsoft’s Project software. While the two programs had a lot in common, there were some differences between the two. For example, Workbench scheduling was work-based as opposed to Microsoft Project’s duration-based scheduling.

Despite its developer’s intention of making Workbench serve as the alternative to Microsoft Project, it was not designed to be fully compatible with the latter’s files. In other words, it could not open files using the Microsoft program’s native format. The two programs had other file formats they could both open, however, so these were generally used for achieving transfers of information across the two project management applications.

Open Workbench was an open-source program, like many other free alternatives to premium applications. It was also developed long enough to reach compatibility status with Windows 7: other operating systems on which it could run were Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000. It was not developed for compatibility with other operating systems and also required the installation of a particular module if the user wanted to give it database access.
