Introduction to Industry 4.0 in SAP ME/MII


SAP Industry 4.0 Key Features


Integration and Connectivity

SAP ME/MII (Manufacturing Execution/ Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) provides a robust interface for the seamless integration of machines, sensors, and various other systems. It enables real-time communication and data exchange across all levels of production.


Transparency and Analysis

With SAP ME/MII, companies can achieve real-time access to production-relevant data. This improves transparency and helps to increase efficiency, reduce downtime, and improve product quality. The software also provides powerful analytical tools to help users identify trends and make informed decisions.


Flexibility and Scalability

SAP ME/MII allows the customization of workflows and processes according to a company’s specific requirements. It therefore supports high flexibility and scalability to support the growth and changing needs within Industry 4.0.
