Automating Key Processes and Workflows Across the Manufacturing Value Chain
Manufacturing Value Chain Workflows
Manufacturers are always striving to reduce waste in production. This includes waste of materials, waste of employees’ time, and waste of system resources. The industry has invested a lot of money and time in process and technology improvements. In its attempts to achieve this goal.
Now, with intelligent Robotic Process Automation (RPA), manufacturers can eliminate inefficiencies and waste from business processes as well. Automation’s potential often becomes clearer when you see it superimposed on your workflows. Let’s take a look at some of the key value-chain workflows in manufacturing. Hence how automation can help eliminate process waste across them.
Manufacturing value chain workflows are critical functions, as they ensure the manufacturer has an adequate material capacity that aligns with its sales forecast. They involve material planning for the product, processing the bill of materials (BOM), selecting and onboarding suppliers, and releasing a purchase order (PO).
Manufacturers needs to know that automating processes and workflows can result in the following:
- By automating 80% of the procurement processes, professionals can focus on higher-value work.
- 90% of the material requirement planning (MRP) process can be automated
- By automating 90% of the process, RPA delivers significant value through downstream cost and risk avoidance due to demand capture issues.
Automating demand planning with RPA delivers the high precision needed by extracting and collating the right information from the various data sources.
This whitepaper, Discover the Automating Key Processes and Workflows Across the Manufacturing Value Chain, is a must-read guide for all manufacturers. Especially for all manufacturing executives who are exploring how Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can be used to transform manufacturing supply chain.
