Two Important Components that are newly added to SAP’s Intelligent Robotic Process Automation to drive efficiency for autonomous intelligence.
- SAP Intelligent RPA Cloud Factory improvements
Simplification to view content of job details which can be accessed with “ViewJobsData” on environment privilege Schedule from different time zone, Use package version to navigate from Job details.
Agent Group – Organize the agents available in your Organization
- Connector Improvements – SAP UI5 Additional controls are enabled to improve the bot building experience such as setByValue, getEnabled and removeAll.
Top 3 business driven innovations to automate your business processes using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation capabilities with #S4HANA #Cloud.
- Digital Automation for Manufacturing – Automatic Route Determination.
- Digital Automation for Shipment – Inbound Delivery Creation from Delivery Notes
- Digital Automation for Production Engineers – Create Routing with Reference.
Let’s take deeper look at the First business driven innovation for Manufacturing using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content with SAP S/4HANA.
Automatic Route Determination (4XL)
The solution provides increased efficiency and simplifies the with efficient way to perform the delivery processes with significant reduction in the repetitive process involving lots of manual efforts.
In large organizations with delivery processes, users need to upload routes, transportation zones, create combinations of departure Transportation Zone/Receiving transportation zone, assigns routes to combinations departure transportation zone/receiving transportation zone in order to determinate their routes automatically, so in this way they can track their routes, classify users by zone and get values of costs for transportation.
With this scope item we provide an efficient way to upload a list of routes for transportation Management. Planner can track the output of each route in a spreadsheet and submit multiple route in one request.
Let’s take deeper look at the second business driven innovation for Manufacturing Processes using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content with SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Inbound Delivery Creation from Delivery Notes (4QK)
With this scope item, we deliver more advanced automation features, allowing Receiving Specialist for to reduce manual effort with repeated system operation. This process bot Improves inbound delivery by reducing the effort for the evidence/booking of incoming shipments. The bot monitors the incoming emails, recognizes the Excel attachments referring to existing purchase order number. SAP Intelligent RPA Bot transforms the data in the Excel into structured inbound delivery requests and forwards the requests to delivery creation in the SAP S/4HANA system. An automated notification will be sent to the relevant stakeholders.
Intelligent bots can take smarter decisions, cut across organizational barriers by driving optimal process modelling for maximum efficiency in delivery processes.
Communication Scenario has to be set up in S/4HANA system for the Logistics – Delivery Processing Integration (SAP_COM_0106). See for more detail documentation here and SAP help documentation URL
Let’s take deeper look at the third business driven innovation for Production routing.
Create Routing with Reference (4QZ)
Process acceleration and enhancement with a digital assistant RPA bot to perform operational work on user’s behalf to create the production routing in SAP S/4HANA Cloud by reading information from input documents (Excel). Production routing defines the production process for any given material.
SAP Intelligent RPA bot create new production routing by automating operations or work steps to be carried out during production ex. the use of materials and work centers. Automation bot create the routing for a finished product or semi-finished product and is specific to a production site (also known as plant). It applies for a given lot size and consists of number of operations with each one allocated to a work center. This automated process using digital assistant bot saves time and effort of the Production Engineer – Discrete Manufacturing users.
Communication Scenario for Product Integration (SAP_COM_0009) has to be set up in S/4HANA system. See for more details documentation here and SAP help documentation URL
SAP Intelligent RPA and the pre-defined bots in S/4HANA help customers to realize intelligent, automatic and accurate business process execution.
Stay tuned for more updates in the next quarters!
