In the previous post, we already talked about how you can know if your processes are candidates for RPA to automate.
One important characteristic is the processes follow a well defined, precise set of rules, with limited judgement. And a rule will look like "If X, then Y".
But what if the processes are very complex and contains hundreds of rules like this? Is it suitable to use the default activities from any RPA tools and drag-drop approaches to design workflows for it?
We faced a process like this, it's just data cleaning and processing for excel files, but the rules can be over 100.
Theoretically, we can only use default Excel activities and design a workflow with it. But it will create a very complex workflow and a nightmare to change, maintain it later. So we decide to code the custom activities for it.
So another thing you need to consider is the process complexity when you want to go with no-code, low-code approach. If it's too complex, make sure the RPA tool you are using provides an easy to extend mechanism so you can have your team customize and code for it.
