RPA best practice
Automation unfolds its full potential if the following things are observed.
The robot can execute processes faster than humans, but for that it needs a unique and predetermined process.
The robot performs actions 100% accurately. However, interference from unknown system messages, changed formats or file names may cause the robot to abort.
The more often the process follows the same pattern, the faster the set-up costs of the robot are amortised. In this respect, robots are particularly suitable for recurring processes.
Robots initially replace small sequences. Bit by bit, more sequences are added until a workflow is partially or even fully automated.
