Manufacturers are dealing with major disruptions and, in many cases, have been forced to suspend or alter operations. In order to efficiently ramp up production and ensure business continuity, manufacturers must optimize supply chain management. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can help by replacing manual tasks with automated workflows, reducing errors and freeing up personnel to focus on higher value assignments.

Aspects of Supply Chain Operations That Can Benefit from RPA


Purchase order processing: Intelligent bots can take in POs from any source—fax, email, website, or even old-fashioned paper forms—and “read” them to extract data. This data is then sent to the relevant databases to fulfill the PO.

Supplier quality management: Digital Workers can monitor returns for quality reasons, track the types of defects per SKU, and issue reports on specific suppliers. Bots can also automate compliance and SLA reporting based on inbound quality data.

Receiving: Bots can take bills of lading and reconcile them with raw goods inventory to ensure all materials have been received and payment is accurate.

JIT delivery management: Bots can automate JIT delivery schedule creation and management. They can help eliminate errors in scheduling and reduce the risk of delivering the wrong inventory to plants.
