Course Objectives

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) is the technology that enables computer software to emulate and integrate actions typically performed by humans interacting with digital systems. These include computers. The software that executes these actions is known as a robot. Examples of tasks that RPA robots are able to automate include capturing data, running applications and communicating with other systems. By automating processes that are highly manual, repetitive and rule-based, RPA solutions can yield greater productivity, create efficiency and thereby reduce costs. Common internal processes across sectors such as banking, retail, technology and the government, which can benefit from RPA include HR, IT services, supply chain, finance and accounting, as well as customer management.
 
The course builds upon foundational training that participants have undergone in robotics process automation, to introduce more complex workflows, scripting and use of UiPath Orchestrator for scheduling tasks. Participants will follow up on their previously acquired basic proficiency in RPA tools to write their own RPA bots. These will allow them to automate more complex work processes in their organisations, once they have completed the course. 

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand what RPA is and its benefits to business processes.
  • Design, build and deploy an RPA robot using UiPath, for automating high volume work processes.
  • Apply UiPath Orchestrator to schedule the execution of planned automation tasks.

Outline

  • Review basic concepts of RPA and key features of UiPath Studio
  • Using more complex workflows for automating processes in Excel, PDF, email
  • UiPath Orchestrator
  • Scripting with RPA

Tools

UiPath Studio, UiPath Orchestrator

Speaker

Dr. Edmund Low

 

Edmund Low is a lecturer with the University Scholars Programme (USP) at the National University of Singapore. He has more than 14 years of academic and professional experience in the use of data-driven tools to answer questions in public health and the environment. His past projects include the use of programming and visual libraries to develop simulation models for automating workflow processes, and the setting up of remote environmental sensing systems to automate real-time continuous monitoring, for early incident warning. He currently heads the quantitative reasoning domain, and is also director of the Quantitative Reasoning Centre, at USP. As an educator, Edmund has received both the USP Teaching Excellence Award, as well as the NUS Annual Teaching Excellence Award. Edmund holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Yale University.
