Applied Robotics Process Automation (RPA) for Sustainability


Course Overview

RPA is a key component in the landscape of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology. It has been identified by major businesses as the transformative capability that directly impacting bottom lines because of improved productivity, new abilities to offer differentiated experiences and uncover new revenue streams. More importantly, automating repetitive, rule-based tasks enables employees to focus on higher-value activities that require advanced skills, improves employee engagement, and translates to happier customers.

Governed by business processes and logics, RPA aims to allow anyone today to apply technology and configure computer software, or a “robot” to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. RPA robots can perform a vast variety of mundane and repetitive tasks substantially quickly and accurately. 

Course benefits

This 2-day introductory course helps upskill participants with fundamental RPA skillset to enable and empower participants to automate their daily challenges independently. When we free up the individuals and allow them more time to use their skills, this elevates engagement, productivity, and performance levels, and job satisfaction. During the course, participants will explore the RPA landscape, its capabilities and applications, future development, and impact to understand the importance of RPA as an enabler of the digital transformation. Participants will have opportunities to work on realistic industry Use-Cases and create RPA solutions in the context of SMART manufacturing and sustainability.

 Use-case scenarios: 

- Login to demo website, scrap for work instructions/job orders from multiple pages and save them into an Excel spreadsheet. 

- Compute company total monthly travel and freight carbon emissions using web resources and save in Excel spreadsheet. 

- Read email messages and download sustainability reports from different regions. Consolidate these reports into a group summary sustainability report. Compose and send customised email messages with the summary report to management committee members. 

• Understand Middleware and its proper usage in application integration.

• Understand processes which can be automated. 

• Explain the basic concepts of Robotic Process Automation.

• Apply RPA techniques to integrate different types of applications such as Desktop Application, Browsers, Excel, PDF & Emails.

• Understand and identify potential compatibility or technical issues while integrating various applications.
