Robotic Process Automation (RPA) uses software robots to automate repetitive, rule-based tasks, just like a human would. This frees up manufacturers to deal with activities which are safe, more enjoyable and need human attention.
Manufacturing companies across the world are utilising RPA to speed up production and keep their employees safe and engaged with their work.
