The Evolution of Business Process Automation

Automatons for toys, fountains, crossbows, gates, and a variety of war equipment that operate using levers, pulleys, and wheels for self-directed machinery can be dated back to Ancient Greece. Although the notion of automation was prevalent early in the manufacturing business, it was not until 1931 that Henry Ford began using it to build his distinctive Model T vehicles.
Companies began adopting computers for basic automation as technology advanced in the 1970s and 1980s. Machines were eventually given redundant duties and procedures. Human resources were able to be more productive and creative in high-level professions as a result, and the risk of human error was reduced.
