IEEE Guide for Terms and Concepts in Intelligent Process Automation
An all new family of software based intelligent process automation technologies has emerged recently. Because of the newness of this kind of automation capability, there are no common definitions of concepts, capabilities, terms, technology, types, etc. This standard is published for the purpose of promoting clarity and consistency in the use of Software Based Intelligent Process Automation (SBIPA) terminology. The definitions represent the consensus of a diverse panel of industry participants.
IEEE Guide for Taxonomy for Intelligent Process Automation Product Features and Functionality
Utilizing terminology as established in IEEE Std 2755-2017, defined and classified in this guide are approximately 150 features and functions across five core areas of technology capability in the family of new technology products collectively referred to as Intelligent Process Automation. This guide is published to create clarity for individuals involved with Software-Based Intelligent Process Automation products so that industry participants may rely on a product manufacturer's functionality claims and understand the underlying technological methods used to produce those functions and how one might approach evaluating the relative sophistication and importance of each function or feature. This guide represents the consensus of a diverse panel of industry participants.
