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.

Keeping the history

Keeping a history of process execution in an RPA can be very useful to get insights into the performance of the automation and identify areas for improvement. Here are some specific ways in which it can be helpful:

  • Identifying bottlenecks: By analyzing the history of process execution, you can identify the steps in the automation process that take the most time or cause the most errors. This can help you pinpoint areas that need to be optimized to improve the overall efficiency of the automation.
  • Debugging errors: If an error occurs during the execution of an RPA automation, having a history of past executions can help you identify the root cause of the error. By looking at the previous executions of the automation, you may be able to identify patterns or commonalities that can help you identify the source of the problem.
  • Optimizing process design: By analyzing the history of process execution, you can identify the parts of a process that are executed...
