Top Use Cases for RPA in Manufacturing
Here are some of the top use cases of RPA in manufacturing:
1. Bill of Materials (BOM)
A BOM is a critical document in manufacturing that lists all of the materials required to develop a new product. RPA can help in the process completion of this critical document by error-proofing the task and eliminating human error. RPA can also verify new product data to ensure that the BOM and other associated parameters are accurate and in sync across engineering, procurement, and planning systems.
2. Invoice Processing
Financial processes are critical to the overall functionality of companies. An RPA deployment can be a great ally to achieve an efficient financial administration in several activities like invoice processing.
RPA can help to collate, organizing, and using all of the data for invoice processing, eliminating inefficiency and errors in the process.
3. Data Migration
Data migrations are a common activity in enterprises that are going through a merger, an acquisition, an implementation, an integration, a modernization effort, a retirement of a legacy system, an ERP upgrade, or a move to the Cloud.
RPA can speed up execution and cancel out the risk of error, yielding more productive outcomes in the data migration activity. By aligning perfectly with the fundamental data migration methodology ETL (Extract, Transform, Load), making a great fit to use RPA for data migrations.
