Coding standards are a collection of rules, guidelines, and best practices. Coding standards are important for safety, security, and reliability. In this course, we learn the most important and UiPath recommended coding standards. Starting from naming conventions to maintaining your code in the code repository, we cover all the best practices.
The success of any RPA project depends on how it is implemented. The life cycle of an RPA project should involve the following five phases/stages.
Identifying candidate processes which can be automated within the scope of RPA is a challenging proposition. One can make use of the process characteristics to identify pool of processes fit for Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The following lesson has more information on how to choose a potential process for automation.
Process and Technical Architects create PDD (Process Definition Document) which provides information on each step of the process. An Object Model Diagram or a flowchart is also created to understand the flow of the process.
Using the PDD created in the previous step, RPA developers create the actual bots using tools like Automation Anywhere, UiPath, or BluePrism. Once all the components are built, unit testing is conducted to eliminate any gaps or integration issues.
Multiple testing cycles are run to analyze the quality of the task being done by the bot and to correct defects if reported.
Support & Maintenance
Once a bot has been tested and moved to production, it enters the maintenance phase. It is possible that there may be changes to the underlying systems and the bot may not perform its job correctly. A dedicated support/maintenance team is recommended for immediate defect resolution.
A detailed RPA delivery road map could look like below:

This is an advanced guide to best practices that need to be followed in developing bots using Automation Anywhere. This course provides an introduction to common bot design guidelines and standards. Avoiding common mistakes and including these processes and considerations in your bot design standards, creates bots that are clean, easier to read, test, maintain, and are stable. Most of […]
Robotic Process Automation(RPA) is a kind of automation where a bot performs human’s task in completing rules based jobs. Robotic Process Automation refers to a style of automation where a machine, or computer, mimics a human’s action in completing rules-based tasks. In traditional workflow automation tools, a software developer produces a list of actions to automate a task and interface to […]
