So much has been said and discussed about BPM software metrics and the measurable efficiencies that organizations can hope to achieve from BPM roll outs.
Pertinent in every industry, a strong ongoing case for the growing relevance of BPM software in Life Sciences is Fujirebio Diagnostics.
WfMC recently recognized and honored this success story as a strong example of achieving real, measurable operational efficiency with BPM. The WfMC Global Awards for Excellence in Business Process Management and Workflow recognize user organizations that have demonstrably excelled in implementing innovative business process solutions to meet strategic business objectives. The broad level assessment criteria includes innovation, implementation, and impact on the business.

Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc. is a premier diagnostics company and the industry leader in biomarker assays. They specialize in the clinical development, manufacturing, and commercialization of in-vitro diagnostic products for the management of human disease states with an emphasis on oncology.
AVEVA™ Work Tasks is at the heart of Fujirebio Diagnostics’ EMS. What it does is digitize and automate FDI’s manual processes that include people, equipment, and systems, based on a sophisticated Business Process Management foundation standard. This enables staff to generate electronic records and file them automatically. The combined functionality of AVEVA™ Work Tasks with AVEVA System Platform enables Fujirebio to model, execute, analyze and improve work processes, enhancing collaboration, productivity, and innovation.
Fujirebio Diagnostics implemented an equipment monitoring system based on AVEVA™ Work Tasks to ensure compliance for extensive reporting and documentation requirements from regulatory authorities. The paperless electronic initiative for its Biomarker Manufacturing helps produce 75 million tests that are distributed throughout the world.
The BPM software solution provides electronic record collection with electronic signatures while maintaining 21 CFR compliance and ISO 9001 and 13485 certifications.
The Fujirebio Electronic Monitoring System is also a clear success story for how BPM software empowers organizations to continuously improve their process and IT landscape.
- The biggest advantage of the new EMS is allowing employees to log automatically rather than manually, thereby now saving 2,300 man-hours per year.
- The tasks related to manually logging equipment parameters and reviewing paper logs and charts are eliminated and has reduced data reviewing time from 15+ hours to just minutes
- Electronic monitoring saves 2/3 of the time, or about 10 hours per month in quality assurance
Clearly, having a well thought out BPM software system in place provides the infrastructure for a scalable solution, creating opportunities for operational improvement throughout the organization. Fujirebio Diagnostics plans to use the infrastructure for other electronic data capture projects going forward.
