Plan your automation projects for high impact and low risk

  1. Create an Automation Roadmap

    A roadmap is a complete plan for a specific part of your production of your choice. You can either make a simple roadmap for a single production line or a more comprehensive one for an entire factory.

  2. Describe processes

    A process is a task in your production that you consider automating. You’ll need to describe the process type, how the process is carried out today and add photo/video documentation. You can add several processes into one roadmap.

  3. Estimate Automation Impact

    For each process, you will be asked a series of questions to determine how automation may increase productivity, enhance quality and improve work environment. The result is an “impact score” for each process.

  4. Estimate Automation Index

    To estimate the risk of automating each process, you may choose from a series of options on the “Automation Index” scale. You may request expert help for this task.

  5. Export PDF report

    The report is a complete overview of all the processes included in an Automation Roadmap. In the report you will get: Description of each process, Impact score, Risk score and Recommendations f or where to start automating
