The Digital Innovation Hub Industry 4.0 (DIHBU) now has its "Intelligent Automation of Processes through RPA and AI" technology demonstrator fully operational and available for free demonstration visits. It is a stable infrastructure attached to the European Digital Innovation Hub DIGIS3 that allows for testing and experimentation services in Industry 4.0.
Demonstrator description and elements
- Order management: The demonstrator explains the application of RPA technology in different situations and processes common in most companies and shows in operation the robotised data management in an ERP to create orders, validating the availability of materials, restrictions and/or blocks that it may have. The automation model presented in the demonstrator has the capacity to make decisions regarding the situation of each material in order to remove it from the order if necessary. In addition, it is able to download the information to be sent by email to the suppliers in Excel or PDF format.
- Invoice accounting: Intelligent automation is capable of reading, understanding and extracting information from any type of document (invoices, delivery notes, orders...) to register them in an ERP. The demonstrator shows how this technology works when applied to the extraction of automated information from invoices and its registration in ERP. The artificial intelligence model shown in the demonstrator has been trained so that, regardless of the invoice format, it extracts the data necessary for the process (due date, order, position, unit price, etc.). Once the data has been extracted, it is validated by ensuring that the unit prices of the order are the same as those of the invoice, that the order/delivery has been received, etc.
- Updating occupational risk prevention data: The demonstrator shows the first stage where the intelligent automation logs into a portal of an external service provider to download the employees' letters of aptitude. Once downloaded, the artificial intelligence model interprets them, capturing the information required for the process. The intelligent automation then logs into the end-user company's portal to upload the data, update the status of each employee on the portal and report back to the prevention technicians.
Anyone who is interested in learning about it can make a free of cost in-person or virtual visit to the demonstrator, with prior booking required to allow for a scheduling of the visits. To do so, please fill in the form available at this link.
