Adding Automation Estimates to the SAP Connector for AppOne

Note: The information in this guide applies to the SAP Purchase-to-Pay Connector for AppOne and SAP Order-to-Cash Connector for AppOne.


The Overview - Automation dashboard in AppOne allows business users to determine which manual events are possible candidates for automation. It displays, for example, information about the costs involved in the execution of an event which indicates the benefit of automating the event. See the illustration below.

Execution Costs

Below is an overview of the attributes that can be used to determine possible candidates for automation.



Event cost

The costs for executing the event.

Event processing time

The amount of time actually spent working for the event.

Below is a description on how to provide input data for automation estimates.

Defining Automation Estimates

Since the SAP source system does not contain data fields that can provide the information, you can upload the Automation estimates.csv file that contains data that is used to calculate automation estimates, for example the labor costs of an event.

Note: The Automation estimates.csv file must contain the event cost or the event processing time for at least one activity. If the file does not contain event cost or processing time data for all the activities, a warning message will be displayed.

Create an Automation estimates.csv file and upload it to your workspace. It should only contain the headers Activity,Event cost, and Event processing time (hh:nn:ss). See the illustration below.

Edit the Automation estimates.csv file and add activities with the related event cost and processing times. See the illustration below for an example.

When you have added the automation estimates you can reload the Automation_estimates_input table to see if the automation estimates are visible in the connector. See the illustration below.
