xMII and System Architecture


In the best practices documents and other xMII related literature that I have read, the proper architecture of integration for xMII into a corporate enterprise landscape is based upon local/plant xMII servers that are connected to a corporate xMII server.

This literature does not delve into the details as to why this approach is significantly better compared to, for example, a single enterprise xMII server that retrieves data from local/plant databases that have taken care of the collection of the relevant shop floor data.

I would appreciate any feedback that can explain the best practices rationale further or provide any novel approaches to xMII's architecture of integration.
