I'm wondering what kind of engineering project management software exists out there. The only ones that I know of are:

ProjectEngineer (
Praesto AE

Of course, there are the non-engineering alternatives like Microsoft Project, Zoho Projects, etc.

Does anybody have any experience with any of these? What are the pros and cons? Is this type of software worth the money? Feel free to add to the list because I'm pretty sure I don't have them all.

I know a lot of large firms in my area use Primavera 6.
Sorry, I can't help with the pros and cons as I'm wondering the same.

There are lots of plug-ins and templates out there for Microsoft Project... I've used an engineering plug-in in the past, it was dandy -- but I don't know its name.

Since you asked "what's out there," google Microsoft Project Plug-ins Engineering

Good on ya,

eTaskMaker is used by the engineering departments of some of our clients to prepare (plan) execution schedules to be included with proposals for all new engineering projects. It makes planning (and cost estimating) piping demolition, fabrication and field installation easy.

Here's more information than you might want about alternatives and feature comparisons. Sorry it's not engineering project-specific.

You can add onepmo ( to your list.
This tool has been built to meet engineers' requirements when dealing with multiple projects and highly qualified resources.

Please let me know if it helps,

Broseke, you may also consider the scheduling software, Schedlyzer Lite from Optisol. It is claimed to be very powerful when multiple projects have to share limited capacity resources.
