The future of manufacturing automation isn’t just Artificial Intelligence and robots. It’s intelligent processes and digitally empowered teams. If you’re running a 21st century manufacturing operation, you’ve probably already digitized significant parts of your operations. Whether that’s a sophisticated enterprise Warehouse Management System or just a series of Excel spreadsheets connected to your ERP, you are already part of the 4th Industrial Revolution. And, it’s just as likely that your data is trapped in inefficient silos, creating bottlenecks that bog down your staff with busywork moving data between systems and manually managing the flow of information.
Efficiency is everything in your business. And, the future of efficiency for business processes in manufacturing is Robotic Process Automation (RPA). By leveraging automated process workflows attended by Digital Workers, you will free the flow of information, increase response time to incidents, and have a deeper understanding of your operational efficiency.
Leveraging Digital Innovation in Manufacturing
Shipping documents, HR paperwork, compliance records, invoices, and operational standards all represent paper that you probably spend significant resources on printing, tracking, storing, and then locating again when needed. But, even with the most current digital tools, it’s still inefficient to operate separate accounting platforms for different business units or have to manually re-enter data from one system to another. This is the significant advantage of RPA solutions – operational efficiency scaled across the business in real time.
RPA for Manufacturing will empower your team to:
Re-Imagining the Digital Workforce for Manufacturing
Beyond the standard back office process optimization that can be applied in many other industries outside of manufacturing, there are other potential digital innovations specific to your operations. You might already know the moment a production line goes offline. But, imagine being able to know exactly why, as well as which maintenance team member has already been instantly notified, and an estimate of the potential downtime, implications for customers, and effects on profitability.
Data visibility is potentially the single greatest impact RPA can have on your manufacturing processes. As hyperautomation takes off, the ability to unite automation with artificial intelligence presents the opportunity for incredible advances in data mining and automated decision mapping. Machine learning ensures that your systems will continue to gain in efficiency, improve your team’s productivity, and even begin creating self-healing workflows.
