Lion Improves Levels of Integration and Automation with SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII)
Manufacturing operators can leverage SAP MII to access appropriate information and execute on production schedules
This research brief examines how Lion improved automation and IT/OT integration in its manufacturing plants. In Lion’s case, the company digitized and automated a manufacturing plant in New Zealand, but a best of-breed strategy for all their enterprise solutions had left them with dozens of different IT solutions and a complicated organic IT architecture that its developers had taken as far as it could go. Lion decided to go with a holistic SAP suite: a new deployment of SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors solutions, SAP Integrated Business Planning for Supply Chain (SAP IBP), and SAP SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII).
