How long does a RPA Project usally last?


#1

I’m quite new to RPA but I have tinkered some with Uipath and Automation Anywhere, and have built a robot that my company used in a POC. Now I have been asked to actually automate a whole process for a business client, and are being asked to estimate how long that will take. But I have no idea really, how long does one usually work on a RPA project? In this case it is to automate the registration of new customers in an banking application.

Always Automation Project estimations will be depends on the following points.
Number of business case (BC) to be automated.
Complexity of Business cases.
Third party tools dependency if any.
Number of RPA developers availability.
Environment availability.
application availability etc…

So, always an approximate estimation can be consider based on number of BC.
if any BC work flow takes 2H to 4H of development time then it will be a simple BC.
if any BC work flow takes 4H to 8H of development time then it will be a Medium BC.
if any BC work flow takes More than 8H of development time then it will be a Complex BC.

Hope my inputs are useful.

Thanks for the info! That is really helpful, it’s hard to know when you haven’t worked on a full RPA project before :slight_smile:
