Infor has unveiled version 11 of Optiva, its software for product lifecycle management (PLM).

Enhancements include improved project management, a new user experience, collaborative social functionality through Infor Ming.le and upgrade to .Net 4.0, and validation for Windows SQL 2012 servers. Workflow rescheduling capability allows users to adjust due date and duration on the fly with drag-and-drop capability. The Stage Gate form includes Gantt chart project visualization, allowing for the suspension, cancellation or recalculation of workflow scheduling. Optiva 11 includes a consumer-grade graphic user interface which helps users to take advantage of expanded industry-specific capabilities, the vendor said. New globalization functionality offers the ability to specify languages from form labels, navigation, lookup, error messages and enumeration labels.
