What is RPA?

Ans. Robotic process automation (RPA) is a type of software that is used to do automation of fundamental tasks in software applications like how a human performs it. The software robot can be trained for a workflow/process with different steps & application. It could be for example, taking received forms, sending a receipt message, checking the forms for completeness, documenting the form in a folder and updating a spreadsheet with the form name, the date recorded, etc. RPA programming is intended to diminish the weight of monotonous, straightforward tasks/work on workers.

List the different types of tools in RPA.

Ans. The Tools are:
1.Blue Prism
2. UiPath
3. Automation Anywhere
4. Work Fusion
5. Openspan


Describe the Lifecycle of RPA.

Ans. There are 4 different phases in RPA lifecycle–

Analysis – Identification of business process for RPA development occurs
Development of Bot – Fulfillment of requirements
Testing phase – Quality checks are performed
Deployment & Maintenance – Bot is deployed and maintained by the team.


How do you deploy the UiPath tool?

-Install UiPath Studio on the system you want to automate processes.
-The robot key from orchestrator is taken to Provision the machine & entering it into the
-Robot Configuration board and furthermore the Configuration URL which you will find in the Admin area of Orchestrator
-Publish your procedure except if you simply need to utilize your current procedure
-Create environment
-Make release of process
Start job


How do you invoke a UiPath workflow?

Workflows are small pieces of common automation that are reusable and applicable in multiple scenarios. They are used to automate similar processes. You can invoke a workflow using “Invoke Workflow” function in UiPath and save it as a template. You can also combine two workflows to make it combined automation.


What are RPA Bots and how to create one?

Bot creator tools such as Automation anywhere or UiPath is used to create bots which are used to automate processes or tasks. To create a bot –

-Record a task
-Complete the bot implementation
-Test the bot
-Upload the bot to perform the automation tasks


List the Industrial applications of RPA.

Banking – Automation of credit card applications in bank, loan processing
Retail – Update orders, manage fake accounts, process shipping notifications
Telecommunication – Monitor subscriber feeds, fraud management and customer data updates
HR – Candidate sourcing, Background verification, payroll automation.


List the Advantages of Robotic Process Automation.

-Efficiency of the tasks is improved
-Tasks are performed quick and without errors
-Increase in productivity
-Cost saving
-Turnaround time is decreased


List the components of RPA Solution Architecture.

  1. Enterprise applications such as ERP Solutions (SAP)
  2. RPA tools – In any environment such as Citrix, web or desktop
  3. RPA Platform – Scheduling, distributing & monitoring the execution of software bots.
  4. RPA Execution Infrastructure
  5. Configuration management

List the limitations of RPA.

-Limitations to tasks like decision making or judgmental tasks.
-It is not a cognitive computing solution rather learns through experience only
-Might be error prone if subjected to new environment without experience
-Cost of implementation is higher across the industry for RPA.
