Robotic Process Automation (RPA) progresses through distinct phases in its project life cycle. When it enters the production deployment phase, the bots are deployed onto dedicated machines to carry out end-to-end automation. It is at this stage that scheduling comes into the picture, guiding bots on when to run and on which machine.
The scheduling step is relevant for bots that run in an unattended/automatic way at specific intervals (often many times a day!). However, it does not apply to bots that are attended or triggered by human or system actions.
