Manufacturing companies are changing their production unit from human resources to physical industry robots for their products to assemble, checking the quality and packing it. Though these robots help to repair the assembly line, the manufacturing companies still struggling to manage their operational processes and back-office work.
Using Robotic Process Automation technologies in their backend operations, they can attain up to 40% cost savings in the various area of work.
Bill of Materials
An essential document for production, Bill of Materials (BOM) has an extensive list of raw materials, components, sub-components and other products for the new product creation. Maintenance of BOM is very manual and time-consuming and prone to errors.
Any mistake in product creation can have significant consequences,
RPA helps companies create the product much faster and with 100% data accuracy.
ERP systems can monitor the current inventory and will notify them when the stock is low. You can use RPA to automate them and reorder again. They will also be able to mass update the SKU automatically.
Reports, like inventory, Accounts Payable and Receivable, Pricing and other reports are automatically generated, and you can automate them to send via email or upload it in a share point folder.
Logistics Data Automation
The transport management system of a manufacturing firm can be integrated with RPA to provide enhanced services. E.g. for a company having multiple carriers and multiple insurances, RPA will enable reporting that will help choose the best carrier based on cost, insurance and transit time.
