Available for free, SYNCHRO Scheduler provides traditional 2D Gantt chart project planning and scheduling software with an advanced CPM engine.
If needed, SYNCHRO Scheduler can synchronize from P6 and Microsoft Project. These FREE software licenses are an opportunity to save money until you are ready to upgrade to 4D visual scheduling.
Create your schedule from scratch in SYNCHRO Scheduler. Add task descriptions, durations, and logic, and let the SYNCHRO CPM engine calculate start and finish dates and the Critical Path. Create multiple calendars, apply constraints and lag, and view the schedule in Work Breakdown Structure or Activity Code mode.
Interoperable with Legacy Software
Import, export and synchronize to-and-from industry standard planning/scheduling software such as Oracle Primavera, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Excel, PMA Netpoint, and Asta Powerproject. Create your schedule in SYNCHRO Scheduler and export to one of the compatible programs to comply with contract requirements, or import multiple sub-contractors schedules from various programs into one master schedule.
Production Rate Scheduling
SYNCHRO Scheduler can calculate task durations based on production rates and quantities allocated to the task. If the quantity or predicted production rate changes the task duration updates automatically. Combined with the strength of SYNCHRO’s CPM engine, the effects on the entire schedule of changing scope or labour force are immediately visible. Alternatively, enter a fixed duration and SYNCHRO will display the production rate needed to accomplish the scope in the given time – a great sanity check for your plan. During construction, track actual and remaining quantities and the remaining duration will be updated accordingly.
Resource Management & Optimization
Create Human, Material, Equipment and Location Resources and assign them to tasks. Create Companies to organize the Resources. Use production rate Rules to auto-calculate task durations. View cost and Earned Value (EVA) data on a per task or project level. Use the Resource Utilization graph to determine where a resource may be over- or under-used and update the schedule in real-time.
Standard and Custom Reporting
Print the Gantt Chart, Resource List or of one of the standard reports including: Resource Utilization graph, Earned Value graph, User Field graph. Alternatively create custom task or resource reports using the custom report editor to add logos, keys or color codes. Data can also be exported to Microsoft Excel for further calculations.

Seamless Digital Integration
SYNCHRO’s interoperability with scheduling software is unmatched in the industry.
"The draft schedule with the model pointed out logistic issues and conflicts. This made us think in greater detail of the exact timing of key elements; egress pathways, foundation phasing, notifications to the owner, scaffolding, crane placement, worker, and material access. It also flushed out critical activities that needed to be completed before the next activity could start." CHS NE Modernization Bed Tower, Robins & Morton.
