Electronic Work Instruction (EWI) in the process industry with SAP MII (SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence)

Electronic Work Instruction | IGZ

With the EWI (Electronic Work Instruction) module, IGZ has expanded its SAP MII (SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) Best Practices to include a further integrative component for interfacing with production facilities by using SAP MES.

Electronic work instructions used for the presentation, processing and confirmation of process manufacturing instructions include the following:

  • Process instruction sheets
  • Process messages
  • Display process standard values or pass these to machinery
  • QM inspection lot processing
  • Display of hazardous material notices and symbols from SAP EH&S


Local data retention in SAP MII (SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) enables autonomous processing. Operators benefit from the deployment of EWI, and especially from the system-assisted guidance of personnel through the process phases, the dynamic control of production facilities and the transfer of process parameters (digital/analogue I/O adapter).

Other advantages include automated process data recording, the provisioning of up-to-date production reference documentation and safety instructions, digital signatures – e.g. via RFID – integrated QM processing, paperless production and the vertical integration via a PI-PCS interface.
