Applied Robotics Process Automation (RPA) for Sustainability

HP – SIM SkillsFuture Queen Bee Programme

Duration: 16 Hours

Category: Individual Courses


The trainer for the Applied Robotics Process Automation (RPA) for SMART Manufacturing and Sustainability course was well-prepared, knowledgeable and willing to help and answer any extended questions. The RPA course provided me with further automation awareness and methodology to improve my work efficiency. This had made me really start to appreciate “the art of automation”.

The first thing I learnt is utilizing this app, UiPath, which is easy to accomplish automation/ coding. I started to realize a lot of my work can be automated with some programming!

Course Overview

RPA is a key component in the landscape of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology. It has been identified by major businesses as the transformative capability that directly impacting bottom lines because of improved productivity, new abilities to offer differentiated experiences and uncover new revenue streams. More importantly, automating repetitive, rule-based tasks enables employees to focus on higher-value activities that require advanced skills, improves employee engagement, and translates to happier customers.

Governed by business processes and logics, RPA aims to allow anyone today to apply technology and configure computer software, or a “robot” to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. RPA robots can perform a vast variety of mundane and repetitive tasks substantially quickly and accurately.

This 2-day introductory course helps upskill participants with fundamental RPA skillset to enable and empower participants to automate their daily challenges independently. When we free up the individuals and allow them more time to use their skills, this elevates engagement, productivity, and performance levels, and job satisfaction. During the course, participants will explore the RPA landscape, its capabilities and applications, future development, and impact to understand the importance of RPA as an enabler of the digital transformation. Participants will have opportunities to work on realistic industry Use-Cases and create RPA solutions in the context of SMART manufacturing and sustainability.
