The number of robots needed is a function of the number of transactions to be processed, the average handling time per transaction and the SLA of the process. Let’s say it takes the robot 5 minutes to process each transaction and there are less than 12 transactions per hour coming in. Furthermore, the required turnaround time 1 hour to process each transaction. In the scenario described, 1 Unattended Robot is sufficient.
So my suggestion is to find out:
- average handling time after automation
- transaction volume
- require turnaround time per transaction
With some simple calculations I’m sure you’ll be able to determine the minimum number of Unattended Robots you require for your process. Good luck!
