What is SAP DMi?
SAP Digital Manufacturing for Insights (SAP DMi) is one of the central reporting functions of SAP Digital Manufacturing. SAP DMi combines the advantages and possibilities of big data in the production environment, because the core task of SAP DMi is the management of production performance in order to support the optimization of production processes through data-driven insights.
With extensive, detailed analyses of production data, selected key figures can be visualized on the basis of any data generated in the MES in order to identify bottlenecks and cost drivers and improve processes.
SAP DMi uses raw data (production data) previously collected by SAP Digital Manufacturing for Execution(DMe) to output analyses, data, KPIs and information on production performance in near real time. SAP DMi structures it using various manufacturing data objects (MDOs for short) and evaluates them in a targeted manner. This makes it easy to calculate Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE for short), for example, based on predefined variables that indicate the level of quality, performance and availability. The causes of OEE losses are also disclosed transparently.
The most exciting functions at a glance:
What are the advantages of SAP DMi?
- Data-driven management of production performance
- Fast response times thanks to full real-time transparency and performance monitoring across system boundaries
- Warning messages when critical threshold values are exceeded
- Comprehensive analysis of production performance
- Detailed root cause analysis for OEE losses, defects, downtimes and pattern recognition for continuous improvement
- Flexible creation of uniform key performance indicators (own KPIs) that can be used as a global standard
- Centralized cloud solution into which data from on-premise systems and other third-party systems can also be integrated
