Robotic Process Automation is a desirable asset to any company. With greater funds and greater missions to achieve, top companies today are open to adopting RPA in order to optimise everyday functions, costs and processes. There is a lot of buzz around automation and digital transformation but most companies are just starting to catch up with how robots are able to master process and functions that have been run by human minds for centuries. Well, here’s the secret!
Robots are able to manage multiple jobs at the same time and have much higher output than human beings. Each robot is assigned a unique ID and credentials that makes it easily distinguishable and always accountable.
If you see a robot in action, it is much like someone taking over your screen. The difference is that actions performed are much faster compared to human beings. Activity logs are also maintained by these robots which may be viewed by human supervisors at regular intervals. All robots need to be controlled by commands to schedule and prioritise the tasks assigned to them.
Learning and Execution
Robots learn processes in two ways
a) They record and observe how humans perform a particular job
b) Detailed process maps created and fed into the system
In the first method, robots perform the job by following the order of steps in the recording. The second approach includes stepwise instructions to carry out the job perfectly. In case of a change in the process, the software needs to be updated manually each time.
Learning how robots work is an interesting process. At the same time, it is a subject of mind-boggling technicalities and layered principles of science. No wonder Robotic Process Automation is one of biggest boons of the modern day advancements in technology and will be an asset to the most influential business enterprises of the world.
