SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence
Optimizing Next-Gen Solutions to Drive Intelligent Supply Chains
What is SAP MII?
SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) is an SAP application that is used to connect manufacturing operations with business processes to ensure collaborative manufacturing.
SAP MII includes two main components – Integration and Intelligence. The integration component provides a direct connection between shop-floor systems and SAP MES and business operations. It works best for industries such as Life Science and Chemical and helps companies in the manufacturing field improve their processes. SAP MII enables these companies to run their businesses based on a single version of the truth. It is essentially a bi-directional data hub integrating SAP ERP and other operational applications. The intelligent component provides insights, workflow tools, and real-time analytics for discovering challenges in the production process, make short-term decisions for productions, and to optimize performance. The information that it provides helps improve transparency and visibility into the company’s manufacturing operations, and as a result improves the overall productivity.
Businesses are able to derive value from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) by connecting their manufacturing processes with the extended supply chain.
