Learn how to use the Self-Service Composition Environment (SSCE) in SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) 15.0 to quickly develop real-time analytics and monitoring dashboards by fetching data from multiple sources.
Reading this article, you will learn how to:
- Integrate plant catalog objects for real-time monitoring
- Integrate SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) catalog objects for analytics and reporting
- Enhance and customize the Self-Service Composition Environment (SSCE)
The Self-Service Composition Environment (SSCE) is a new feature in SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) 15.0 that enables you to develop real-time visualization dashboards using the visualization and data components developed in the SAP MII workbench without any coding.
One of the common requirements in manufacturing plants is to provide visualization dashboards for real-time monitoring of processes and assets used in the manufacturing execution process. The dashboards may need to fetch data from multiple sources and have to provide visualizations in different forms such as charts, reports, and dynamic graphics for easy analysis by the end users.
I explain how to use the Self-Service Composition Environment (SSCE) in SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) 15.0 to quickly develop real-time analytics and monitoring dashboards by fetching data from multiple sources. To help you understand the workings of the SSCE, I walk you through the following sections:
- An overview of SSCE
- Initial steps to create a dashboard
- How to integrate with MII content
- Enhancing and customizing the SSCE
Prerequisites for this article are knowledge of SAP MII catalog objects and the Plant Integration Catalog (PIC).
An Overview of the SSCE
SAP MII’s SSCE is a platform on which you can create real-time dashboards by dragging and dropping. The entire platform is built on SAP UI5; therefore, the resulting dashboard looks rich and beautiful. The SSCE caters to the needs of both technical and business users. Business users do not prefer to write cryptic code, but the technical users might want better control of their dashboards by coding. The SSCE can handle both.
The main advantage that the SSCE platform offers is the ability to create beautiful dashboards quickly in just a few clicks and dragging and dropping.
