Abstract: The paper discusses more than 10-year experience in product configuration automation based on number of joint projects between an academic institution and an industrial partner. During the last years, the research and development in the era of digital transformation has enabled a shift from conventional company business processes to digital business processes. In the paper we present several business processes that have been successfully automated what in turn has significantly decreased the product configuration time as well as errors caused by the human factor. The following business processes are covered: identcode (product code) related procurement, product segmentation, delivery class specification, supply chain & production management; online & offline sales, and customer guidance. We present the developed platform to support these business processes that consists of 10 workflows. We have integrated the developed workflows to the company production processes and show that busin ess process execution time in average has decreased by 2 times and for some processes by more than 10 times. At the moment, the developed platform is being successfully used by the company. (More)
