Abstract—Global manufacturing enterprises meet a lot of challenges on enterprise level, plant level and shop floor level. To solve those challenges, a kind of real-time Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII) solution is proposed, and its standard interfaces with ERP modules and shop floor systems, standard integration functionalities, and typical use cases and typical benefits, are described. By using of the practical project executed in one global chemical company as background, the paper introduces the project’s “AS IS” situation, and “TO BE” target. Then, the MII solution is discussed in more detail, including its business scope, customer requirements, server selection, high availability solution, core technologies, and its main functions: load; unload; transfer; special instruction; inventory; blending; KPI dashboard. The tactical benefits, which have been made for the customer with the MII solution, are summarized. Finally, some conclusions are drawn out.
