The Process Designer is responsible for understanding the current process.
He makes sure that the people working on the RPA project are in sync.
He also monitors the changes that happen after implementing the feedback during development or testing phase while keeping the project specifications intact.
Automation Architect builds the RPA project using the RPA tooling.
He is the member of core automation team and may or may not have the developer level expertise depending on the RPA tool the organization is using.
The automation architect still has some experience in the programming and solving the real-world problem.
Ensure that the processes are being triggered as intended
Address the inline processing bot prompts (e.g. Invoice amount exceeds PO amount, but an order is a special order item reject or accept? )
Handle the process exceptions (e.g. Invoice was rejected, now what? )
Report the bugs to the Automation Architect
Review analytics and provide process improvement information to the Process Designer
