Event Details:

  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is software used to automate high-volume repeatable tasks. RPA does this by performing the same computer keystrokes and opening the same modules humans do. Ryder System has obtained great ROI by using the technology to automate a legacy planning system. Dow is extending automation to higher level decisions for which Robotic Process Automation isn’t well suited. Specifically, Dow's focus is automating order transactions and the related material flows supporting these transactions. Dow's insight is that methods used to automate batch manufacturing can be applied to order fulfillment transactions. By applying batch-control methodology, Dow approaches transactional process automation in a more structured manner.

At the 24th annual ARC Industry Forum, attendees will discover strategies and stories from the digital front lines, powered by ARC's research. There are countless ways for businesses to conduct their digital transformation journeys, many technologies and suppliers to evaluate, and endless choices to make along the way. Embedded systems, networks, software platforms, augmented reality and machine learning may play a role as enterprises begin to improve uptime, optimize operating performance, enhance service and re-think business models. ARC Industry Forum participants and attendees will discover what peers and industry leaders are doing today and what steps they’re taking in their respective journeys.
