The Advantages of Using Low-Code RPA in Manufacturing Industry

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has significantly transformed a diverse range of industries. This is evident from the fact that the global RPA market stood at a little more than $2 Billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.9% from 2023 to 2030. The impact of RPA in manufacturing is also significant, as several businesses have already adopted or are in the process of adapting to this technology in 2024. 

In this article, we will look at some of the biggest advantages of using low-code RPA manufacturing. We are also going to learn a little about the right platform to use. But first let us understand about RPA and low-code RPA. 

What is Low-Code RPA? 

Low-code Robotic Process Automation refers to a development approach that focuses on simplicity and visual modeling to automate processes with minimal manual coding. In a low-code RPA environment, developers use graphical user interfaces and pre-built components to design automation workflows rather than writing lines of code. 

Microsoft Power Automate is a cloud-based, no-code RPA platform that uses a simple graphical user interface to help you create automated workflows. The workflows can be implemented on Microsoft 365 applications like Outlook, Teams, or SharePoint or on a range of third-party applications.

The Benefits of Low-Code RPA in Manufacturing Industry 

Let us now look at some advantages of using Low-Code RPA for your manufacturing business. 

Increase Your Operational Efficiency through Low-Code RPA in Manufacturing 

Operational efficiency is key to growth in manufacturing. One of the biggest impediments for better efficiency is spending too much time on repetitive tasks. They take up a considerable amount of time, especially in large operations. Apart from that, there is also the chance of human errors. 

Low-code RPA platforms like Power Automate allow you to automate the repetitive tasks. This frees up resources which can be used in more productive tasks and eliminates the chances of errors. 

Example Case: Quality Control Automation: You can use Power Automate to implement RPA for automated data collection and analysis in quality control processes. This reduces the time required for completing QA processes and improves accuracy. 

Accelerate Deployment for RPA Workflows 

You might be considering using RPA using a traditional, ‘code-based’ approach, but the time-to-market for such workflows is long. If you detect any issues with the flow during testing, you will need to rework on the code, further increasing the time for deployment. 

Using Power Automate allows for faster development and deployment of automation solutions. As the workflow is built through a GUI, the overall process of development is much faster. The processes can also be deployed in the target environment with just a few clicks. 

Example Case: Streamlining Order Processing: Let us assume that you want to automate your entire order processing workflow. In most cases, order processing will depend on several interconnected factors. This makes automating the process complex and error-prone when you are using a code-based approach. 

Low-code RPA platforms make the overall process much simpler. You can simply use a pre-existing flow template, set up data connectors that will feed the required data, create exceptions before deploying the flow. 

Get Greater Flexibility with Power Automate 

As your businesses evolves, or when you must meet changing market demands, you must adapt your processes too. Changing an automated process is simpler as you do not have to allocate additional resources or train your employees, as you might have to do in the case of manual processes. 

You get even more flexibility with Power Automate. Compared to coded RPA, where you must change a significant part of the code and retest it, you do not have to make significant changes to your workflows in Power Automate. You just need to change certain modules and you are done.  

You can also set up Power Automate to meet the dynamic changes in demand and other factors. As the data fed to the system changes, the workflow also adapts according to the rules set by you. 

Example Case: Flexible Production Scheduling: With the help of Power Automate, you can adapt your production schedules in real-time based on demand fluctuations, optimizing resource utilization using a flexible automation workflow. This minimizes human intervention without compromising on the ability to meet market demands. 

These are some of the ways in which RPA for manufacturing can drive up efficiency. Based on your business requirements, you can get even more benefits.
