Parts 1-4 of this series uncovered the significance of defining the high-level process, capturing detailed task information, adding the process’ critical dependencies, and translating all of that into work.

In part 5 of our task capture for automation best practices series, we reveal how you can take that work and accelerate RPA development. Specifically, we’ll focus on how you can get that information into the hands of developers where automation or any type of development is concerned in the fastest, most seamless way possible.

Process discovery and the different technologies that make up that sector – process mining, task mining, or task capture solutions – have many different use cases and desired outputs.

For example, process discovery tools can be used for simple process improvement, the removal of waste, process definition and digitization, increased process visibility, lo/no-code development, outsourcing, retraining, or automation, amongst a host of other outcomes. In this case, we’re interested in any output that requires development, particularly automation.

To maximize your returns from your process discovery efforts and scale your RPA efforts, the goal should always be to accelerate development.

How to Accelerate RPA Development with the Right Tools

One of the biggest pain points with all the process discovery solutions available today is their lack of output options.

In a recent study on the state of process discovery and task mining that Blueprint performed, we found that 36% of respondents identify a lack of output options as one of the biggest gaps in functionality with current task mining tools.

Most task capture tools that come bundled with their respective RPA platforms don’t necessarily provide a better option. While they can synchronize the process and task information they gather with their specific and proprietary RPA platform, therein lies the problem—that integration only works with one platform.

What if your organization or RPA CoE (Center of Excellence) has multiple RPA tools?

Sure, many of them claim that this information can be nicely packaged into a PDD (process design document), but is that any better?

The flaws and failings of the labor-intensive and error-prone PDD have been well-documented, so we won’t shed any more light there.

What’s needed is a platform-agnostic solution that can take all the information you’ve put into the design for your automated process the process definition, low-level details, mapped dependencies, user stories, and test cases into where the actual development work will happen. Not in a document that is a throwback to how software development was managed in the 90s with business requirements documents (BRD).

A seamless way to package all that contextual and critical information in a way that can be synchronized with your RPA platform is exactly what Blueprint delivers.

How Blueprint Accelerates Process Discovery Output Development and Automation

Blueprint Task Capture – a process discovery solution that makes up one of the tools in Blueprint’s Enterprise Automation Suite – accelerates RPA development unlike any other tool available in the market to give you faster time to value.

Blueprint automatically packages all of the design work you’ve already completed; the process, its low-level details, all screen shots, mapped dependencies, user stories, and test cases into what we call a Digital Blueprint.

Your Digital Blueprints can then be automatically synced with any of the leading RPA platforms you may use, thanks to Blueprint’s bi-directional RPA integrations. From there, your RPA developers effortlessly pick up all the precise design and rich guidelines you’ve provided for them in whichever RPA studio you use for development and deployment, whether it be Microsoft Power Automate, UiPath, Blue Prism, or Automation Anywhere.
