Robotic automation software

The term Robotic automation refers to the automation of industrial and clerical processes using robots, of various guises. refers to a class of software products used in that latter, clerical, context.

Examples of robotic automation include the use of industrial robots in manufacturing and the use of software robots in automating clerical processes in services industries. In the latter case, the use of the term robot is metaphorical, conveying the similarity of those software products – which are produced to provide a generic automation capability and then configured within the end user environment to execute manual and repetitive tasks – to their industrial robot counterparts. The metaphor is apt in the sense that the software "robot" is now mimicking or replacing a function classically associated with a person, for example in IVR voice recognition and chatbot technology as a means of data collection and distribution, in place of a person conducting a telephone conversation, for example.

In general terms, robotic automation corresponds to an emerging trend for technology to replace the functions performed by humans, particularly in the service sector, where the adoption of – and the concept of – robotics falls significantly behind the rate and incidence of adoption of automation within manufacturing.

Business Drivers[edit]

Typically, the motive for deploying robots is to either improve quality, cut cost of production or to achieve both of these things. The typical characteristic benefits of robotic automation are reduced cost, increased speed, increased accuracy and consistency, improved quality and improved scalability of production. These characteristics carry differing importance across differing applications: a notable difference in impact can be observed between the manufacturing and service sectors where the benefits conferred by these characteristics can differ greatly in significance.
