Internet of things

SAP MII can help you leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) by connecting your equipment, people, and operations to your extended supply chain.
Get the manufacturing intelligence and visibility you need to run in real time – and tightly integrate your manufacturing processes with business operations.
Become a highly adaptive manufacturer with 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.
