Bonitasoft, the fastest-growing provider of business process management (BPM) solutions, announced AREVA, a world leader in nuclear power and a major player in renewable energies, will use its Bonita BPM solution to help deploy and track changes in the construction of next generation nuclear power plants.
Facilitate document movement, support change traceability and connect applications
To support construction of a nuclear power plant in China, project managers required a solution for tracking engineering changes in real-time during different phases of the project. Specifically, a need to automate the flow of electronic documents among critical project players was necessary to chart real-time changes. Another important aspect of the project was to integrate a BPM engine into a third party application. AREVA chose to use Bonita BPM as its modular solution because it easily met the need to interface with an external application.
A total of 8 processes were modeled, automated and deployed, and are now used by hundreds of people to handle 400-500 simultaneous edits per year. A single change process can take up to a year to complete and the ability to handle such long-duration processes is a key feature of the application.
Going paperless, optimizing processes, and real-time monitoring
Today, the application is fully deployed and operational. Integrating the Bonita BPM Engine in the internal solution enables completely paperless processes, optimization of processing change time and real-time monitoring of changes by all stakeholders.
