(Free) Tools to manage and keep track of productions


As projects grow and so its complexity it gets harder to manage all its elements, that is: Time management, schedule, stages (recorded, in edition, pending, complete, etc..), video and audio files, hard drive location of assets, etc...

I end up using many applications to get the grasp of each project...can you people recommend any tool that somehow can keep track:

* Time estimates (milestones, stages, etc...)
* Some kind of database for where all the elements of the production are (computers, hard drives, etc...)
* etc...

To summarize what are you using for your productions...if its free and works the better and if it can use over the web (to share/use with other co-workers) even better...if not, I would also like to know what you are using.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but this is a free software package that I use for certain projects.

Might help you out, but if not, it's free so you haven't lost anything.
