Managing service-level agreement of robotic assignments
A service-level agreement (SLA) determines the specific time by which robots must complete all instances of a specific assignment type. By defining an SLA, you can measure the performance and service of your robots, based on your business objectives.Additionally, an SLA can help you decide whether to move more robots to work group in which you observe an increased number of SLA violations.
To ensure timely assignment completion, Pega Robot Manager applies the default pyDefaultSLAForRoboticAssignment SLA rule to an assignment type if you do not configure an SLA in the Assign to robot queue smart shape. The default SLA value is three hours.
To better measure and manage the workload within a specific assignment type (work queue), you can override the default SLA value in Pega Robot Manager.
Configuring service-level agreement for robotic assignments
Set measurable performance standards for completion of robotic assignments to help you meet your business objectives.Meaningful SLAs influence how Pega Robot Manager determines whether a work group is reaching the capacity limits and needs more robots to work on assignments that are approaching an SLA deadline.
Log in to Pega Robot Manager.
From the Pega Robot Manager menu bar, select Robots.
On the Work groups tab, select a work group that contains the assignment type whose SLA you want to update.
