The Project Scheduling Game (PSG) can be bought as an academic or business PSG Suite which can be used by Project Management lecturers and their students in university, business school or commercial trainings. A PSG Suite License includes the following PSG editions:
1. PSG Teacher Edition: The teacher edition is only for personal use to create PSG projects and to play the game and can be installed on only one machine. During installation, you need to enter your serial number to request a release code that will be sent to you.
- PSG Creator module: This module is your personal version to create PSG projects that can be used by any PSG simulator module.
- PSG Simulator module: This module is your personal version to play the PSG and will be installed automatically upon installation of the PSG Creator module.
The PSG teacher edition can be downloaded from your personal support page and has no expiring date.

The PSG student edition can be downloaded by the students from a webpage using a master serial key which will be provided to the PSG Suite owner upon registration of a course. The student edition is only valid for one Project Management course and expires two months after installation.

Playing the PSG in other courses

While the Teacher edition never expires, the Student editions are only valid for a single training day, and can be renewed at a reduced price of € 399 per course. Therefore, a PSG Suite owner can register additional courses at any time to play the game with another group of students (step 4). Each course registration involves an extra payment of € 399 to buy a new master serial key to play the game with another group. Steps 5 and 6 are similar as described above to distribute the PSG Student edition to the students.
A business PSG Suite license costs € 599 per bundle of 4 participants up to 20 participants. Extra participants (> 20) at charged at € 75 per person. This license is valid for only one course.
