RPA Solution Architect's Handbook

By: Sachin Sahgal

Overview of this book

RPA solution architects play an important role in the automation journey and initiatives within the organization. However, the implementation process is quite complex and daunting at times. RPA Solution Architect’s Handbook is a playbook for solution architects looking to build well-designed and scalable RPA solutions. You’ll begin by understanding the different roles, responsibilities, and interactions between cross-functional teams. Then, you’ll learn about the pillars of a good design: stability, maintainability, scalability, and resilience, helping you develop a process design document, solution design document, SIT/UAT scripts, and wireframes. You’ll also learn how to design reusable components for faster, cheaper, and better RPA implementation, and design and develop best practices for module decoupling, handling garbage collection, and exception handling. At the end of the book, you’ll explore the concepts of privacy, security, reporting automated processes, analytics, and taking preventive action to keep the bots healthy. By the end of this book, you’ll be well equipped to undertake a complete RPA process from design to implementation efficiently.

Queue reporting

Queues play a crucial role in RPA by enabling the efficient and automated handling of large volumes of data and tasks. They provide a central location to manage and prioritize work items, helping to ensure that processes are executed in a timely and organized manner.

In addition to their operational benefits, queues can also provide valuable data for analytics. By tracking the status and progress of work items within a queue, businesses can gather insights into process performance, identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and optimize their RPA processes.

To use queues for analytics, businesses can generate reports that provide a snapshot of queue performance and identify trends and patterns over time. Some of the reports that can be generated from queues include the following:

  • Queue status reports: These reports provide a high-level overview of the current status of work items within a queue, including the number of items waiting to be processed, in progress...
