Reducing “Process Waste” in Manufacturing
Supply Chain Management Amid Disruption with RPA
Manufacturing companies have always invested heavily in industrial engineering to achieve production process improvements and minimize waste. More recently, to be “greener” and operate more sustainably, they started squeezing inefficiencies out of material and byproducts waste at record levels.
- 98% of companies track ENERGY usage
- 76.3% of companies track RECYCLING usage
- 81.3% of companies track WATER usage
Today, with Robotic Process Automation (RPA), manufacturers can apply the same principles and squeeze inefficiencies and waste from business processes—from finance to supply chain to customer service operations.
RPA also addresses the problem of human errors in the manufacturing process. Although only a third of manufacturers surveyed have implemented RPA to date, 75% of pilot tests have met or exceeded expectations, with most manufacturing firms (83%) reporting they achieved ROI in 12 months or less.
Initial manufacturing forays into RPA have been in finance operations—automating processes such as accounts payables, accounts receivables, and other routine finance workflows. Yet, the manufacturing supply chain processes present higher ROI possibilities for intelligent automation.
This eBook, Reducing ‘Process Waste’ in Manufacturing, is a must-read guide for all manufacturing executives who are exploring how Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can increase efficiency and reduce errors in supply chain planning, procurement, and operations.
