What is SAP MII ?

Base Definitions

Vertical Integration

Strong Trend to vertical Integration

Level 1 / 2 is growing up (industrial computers became a normal part of automation technology and are normally maintained by plant engineering staff) ERP (Level 4) takes logistic functions as rough and detailed Planning, production preparation, production and quality control, processes get standardized in an increasing amount. On the other hand, demands for integration of these processes get more complex in an increasing amount

Vertical Integration - Development



Level 3 Level 3

Level 1/2

Vertical Integration

Standardization of processes Centralized Data Management (Documentation, Data Protection and Backup) No duplication of data acquisition and processing Near real-time data in material management, controlling, sales & distribution ERP-data as basis for technology-specific solutions (optimization, process models)

Platform versus MES-Products

As you come close to the shop floor, production specific technology strikes through Standard-MES Should fit very well to the specific technology (industry solution), otherwise only a small part of functionality is used, the rest has to be done via adaption of standard functions)

Includes standard components for functionality, which is used in all projects (e.g. interfaces, logic components). These components are configured to project specific solutions. Ideally a platform includes templates, which can be flexibly used as starting point for a technology-specific solution

Requirements to MES-Platform

Strong Integration into ERP

Base Data in ERP Setup of Producation out of ERP (no duplicated Acquisiton and Maintennache of Base and Order Data) Real-time Confirmations to ERP (Material Management and Controlling)

Technology-specific Processes Continuous Improvement of Processes High Level of Automation Company Solutions (Deployment, Roll-out, Support, Internationalisation, Security)

SAP-MII meets these demands

Functionally - Integration - Process Modelling - Visualisation Organizationally - Lifecycle-Management - Deployment Structurally - Standards - Infrastructure

SAP-MII - Integration

ERP-Integration is the main asset

Data Integration with SAP ERP via JCO, JRA, WAS, IDOC Access to other SAP NetWeaver-Components Integration of existing ERP-Functions

Shop Floor
Integration of all important OPC-Servers Integration of many SCADA-Systems and Historians (OSIsoft)



Enterprise Applications
Web services, XML, PI Legacy-Systems, MES
OPC XML SQL Flatfile ...

Advantages of SAP-MII in Projects

Platform mit with a high percentage of standard in all areas, where normally much work has to be done in projects (e.g. interfaces) By this, concentration to process modelling is achieved Otherwise flexible enough for an easy developement of customer-specific solutions Independence of Supplier
Maintenance Extensions and continuous improvement Cooperations of several suppliers
