SAP MII


MII Defined

Manufacturing integration and intelligence (MII) is an application to synchronize manufacturing operations with back-office business processes and standardized data. It is a data hub between ERP and operational applications that is a workflow to identify problems in production performance. The Internet of Things (IoT) provides intelligence and visibility in real time to tightly integrate manufacturing and operations. MII provides analytics and analysis to review overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

The main components of MII are on-premise and private cloud deployment, predefined content integration with SAP S/4HANA, local and central KPIs for equipment effectiveness, and in memory big data analysis.

SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII)

Key Capabilities of SAP MII include:

  • Centralized Plant Information: View of plant resources with a catalog to arrange shop floor assets in a hierarchal structure, maintain master data, and incorporate information from sensors and business users.
  • Streamlined Energy Monitoring and Analysis: Simplify the analysis of energy resources across the plant information catalog, from buildings to manufacturing networks.
  • Enhanced Overall Equipment Effectiveness: Identify the root causes for equipment down time, efficiency loss, and low quality on various hierarchy levels by viewing them in a business context.
  • Focused Manufacturing Analytics: Increase insights with in-memory platform for cross-data store analysis, statistical process control, predictive analytics, and storage for big data.
  • Customized User Information: Role-based production data on desktop or mobile device with dashboards.
  • Integrated Business Processes: Connect intelligent business processes to production and extend integration to device connections.

Benefits are:

  1. Increased OEE to identity equipment down time.
  2. Integration between the shop floor and ERP applications.
  3. Process orchestration of quality management processes by specific customers.
  4. Platform universality for rapid adoption by other manufacturing processes.

Vendor partners to support your manufacturing digital intelligence include: Pillirio, Dataxstream, and SAP.
