UiPath works with Deloitte in the Smart Factory @ Wichita initiative


UiPath, a robotic process automation (RPA) software company, recently announced it has become a builder sponsor of The Smart Factory @ Wichita, a new Industry 4.0 immersive experience center by Deloitte.

As a sponsor of The Smart Factory @ Wichita, UiPath said it will showcase the role of RPA in the future of smart factories while “engaging a broad spectrum of companies in sophisticated manufacturing innovations and the technologies behind them.”

Sebastian Seutter, global manufacturing lead at UiPath, said: “There are endless possibilities to evolve the way in which solutions and products are developed within smart factories to make an impact on the world. When automation, artificial intelligence, and the IoT are seamlessly connected, smart factories can dramatically reduce throughput time and increase factory output, while enabling reduced lot sizes, ensuring sustainable operations, and lower operating costs. We are embarking as a team on this initiative to illustrate to companies around the world how humans working alongside robotic software assistants will rapidly introduce new capacity for value and innovation.”

The Smart Factory @ Wichita is a 60,000 square feet space located on Wichita State University’s Innovation Campus. It includes a fully operational production line and labs for developing and exploring smart factory capabilities.

As a builder sponsor, UiPath will work with Deloitte to advance the execution of smart factories and enable manufacturers to quickly adopt Industry 4.0 technologies to drive new business models and boost quality, productivity and sustainability. As part of the sponsorship, UiPath says it will leverage the ecosystem of The Smart Factory @ Wichita to help customers across numerous industries innovate their supply chain and access next-generation technologies such as the UiPath platform to automate processes like order intake management, ERP alignment, factory asset intelligence and performance management, plant consumption, factory synchronization and scheduling, and energy management.

Stephen Laaper, principal at Deloitte Consulting, said: “Robotic Process Automation is a key component in the new age of manufacturing excellence. It will enable smart factories to scale processes from the factory floor to C-level decision making. RPA removes the burden of mundane, repetitive work from people so that they can focus on dynamic, creative endeavors. As a leader in enterprise RPA, UiPath brings extensive knowledge in automating processes for the greatest impact on business outcomes in their manufacturing operations.”

The Smart Factory @ Wichita is a digitized and connected production facility that uses technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics to help companies manufacture products, create new business value and automate or eliminate business processes.
