HP Shop-Floor Integration with SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII)

I listened in on an excellent presentation yesterday at SAPPHIRE 2010, about MII by Suraj Prabhu (HP), and David Kinnebrew of Coca Cola Company. They presented how HP provided an end-to-end solution; one vendor solution to integrate Shop Floor with SAP ERP solution. This is the first of MII integration with SAP ERP processes at a customer site. This presentation was very well attended, standing room only, and even during the Q&A session. The discussion ran out of time rather than questions! 

HP not only designed the solution, but also helped build the integrated solution, deployed it in a timely manner. HP will continue with the support for the production environment at the Coca Cola company. One of the customers commented, "you are the first ones to use MII the way it is supposed to be!"

Please contact if you have any questions.
