I'm building a lab that people will use to build basic software concepts (prototypes) so they have something tangible to assess.

All types of software prototypes will be developed in there: from iOS to embedded, from beautiful looking GUIs to database management tools.

It is quite a herculean lab with a decent funding.

The question is simple though: What are the tools would be of help on TRACKING, MANAGING and PLANING the ongoing projects?

(I've really tried to narrow the question, hopefully it is not too vague)

    I'm sorry, but I'm voting to close as 'too broad': tracking, managing and planning is so generic that any project management software will do. What is so specific to your projects that a generic project management program can't do? – Jan Doggen Apr 23 '15 at 13:48
  • Isn't it software recommendations? Give it a try =) – SenhorLucas Apr 23 '15 at 14:23

    Yes, it is "Software Recommendations". And to give recommendations (and not just miles-long lists of names), there are certain requirements: What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? So I agree with Jan, and second him. – Izzy Apr 23 '15 at 14:38
  • This seems reasonable clear to me. OP wants a tool to give visibility over projects - what they involve, who's working on them, time frames, dependencies, etc? – dwjohnston Apr 23 '15 at 18:20
  • Did the OP say so? I think that you are projecting. Correctly, as it happens :-) But we can all guess that much, and it is still as vague as Jan said. I think that OP really needs to give an explicit list of features, but my guess is that he doesn't really know enough about the subject - in which case, he would be better off googling & trying a few out. – Mawg Apr 24 '15 at 7:54
