SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII)

As a manufacturer, you need to manage your business in real time. You need to be able to exchange information between manufacturing and supply networks – so you can respond quickly to changing customer demands.

And this is the purpose of SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII). SAP MII provides a direct connection between business operations and shop-floor systems. Thereby enterprises can respond fast and flexibly to unexpected changes of demand.

SAP MII provides a direct connection between systems for production and systems on the business level. All data that affects manufacturing is immediately available and visible – including information about equipment status, product quality, order processing, consumables etc.

Strength of the SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence

  • Lower total cost of ownership – SAP MII provides real-time connectivity between the shop floor and your ERP system. Prebuilt, standards-compliant connectors significantly reduce initial costs, complexity, and total cost of ownership.
  • Higher productivity for shop-floor personnel – The solution aggregates data from multiple systems to deliver useful information to plant employees through alerts, reports, and key performance indicators (KPIs). A single view of analytic information through role-based, configurable dashboards enables fast, accurate decision-making.
  • Continuous improvement in processes and performance – SAP MII delivers real-time analytics that enhance manufacturing performance. Production personnel can monitor, measure, and control process-improvement initiatives, including Six Sigma, lean manufacturing, and right-first-time manufacturing.
  • Superior asset usage – With SAP MII, you can take advantage of asset-to-asset and plant-to-plant comparisons that enable benchmarking, better asset usage, and rationalization of poorly performing assets.
  • Faster time to value – SAP MII can usually be implemented within 90 to 120 days, delivering rapid return on investment.
