Overview of SAP IS-U CCS modules
The IS-U CCS is a Industry Solution from SAP which address the needs of acustomer oriented utility company. In the next pages we’ll refer to SAP forUtilities Industry Solution simply as IS-U or CCS.IS-U comprises the following modules:Master Data and Basic FunctionsCustomer ServicesWork ManagementDevice ManagementBilling & InvocingEnergy Data ManagementContract AccountsA complete SAP for Utilities solution should also contain the following SAPproducts:CRM – Customer Relationship ManagementBW – Business Warehouse.The CRM solution is design to cover all the marketing, customer acquisition,sales and customer services processes of a utility company. It is fullyintegrated with the IS-U: CRM works as a front end (contracts, customerservices, market campaigns and IS-U as a backend (billing, paymentprocessing, work management, etc). For example when using a CRM as afront end system, a contact created in CRM is replicated automatically in IS-U where the necessary master data is created automatically using MasterData Templates.The Business Warehouse solution is used for reporting. Is comes with aBusiness Content which already contains a lot of predefined Info Cubs andreports.
Where can IS-U be implemented?
The traditional value chain in the energy industry is:Generation, transmission, Distribution, Supply and Customer Services andBilling.The IS-U has been successfully implemented and design for the Distribution,Supply and Customer Services and Billing. However IS-U (mostly EDM) hasbeen implemented in Transmission companies as well. Of course with a
few/a lot of developments depending on which of the business processeswere covered in IS-U.Typical landscape for a SAP for Utility Solution<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif]-->
SAP R/3 and IS-U can be implemented under the SAP IS-U Client or in differentclients.
Implementing SAP IS-U and SAP R/3 in the same client:
This is the best solution as the interfaces between SAP R/3 and SAP IS-U is native.IS-U practically extend some of the R/3 functionalities.Examples:- an IS-U device is a serial number of a device category. In R/3 a device category isa material in the Logistics Material Master.- FI-CA posts closed reconciliation keys in the General Ledger.- a device location and connection object is a functional location in PM- a work management order is a PM order.
Implementing SAP IS-U in a different client than SAP R/3:
This is a solution suitable for large implementations with large number of customers. The interfaces are kept at minimum.For example:FI-CA posts reconciliation keys in the local General Ledger. Then the posting in thelocal General Ledger needs to be transferred in the R/3 General Ledger using aninterface usually ALE.The utility company buys new meters. This are managed in SAP R/3 from thelogistic and accounting point of view: purchase order, goods receipt and invoice. Butin the same time a interface (manual / automatic) needs to be established to makethe meters available in IS-U for the device installation process.There could be other examples as well but these are the ones are most common.
IS-U and R/3 Integration.
Let’s see the integration of IS-U and R/3 in depth detail.As I already told you, the IS-U is sometimes extending existing R/3 functionalitiesto cover the need of the utility business. But of course other functionalities werenewly developed.
Device Management
is fully integrated with the PM and MM and AM modules. Adevice (e.g.: meter, transformer) is a serial number of a device category and in thesame time a piece of equipment. The device category is defined as a material in thematerial master.
Work Management
is fully integrated with MM, SD, PM/CS and Controllingmodules. Here the utility company can implement a broad range of billed or non-billed services offered to the customers. For example a work management order isan extension of a PM/CS order and can be linked to IS-U objects such as BusinessPartner, Contract Account, Connection Object.
Billing & Invoicing
is fully integrated with SD. For example we can implement aprocess where some services are billed in SD and Invoiced in IS-U.
Contract Accounts
is fully integrated with Financial Accounting. CA is a sub-ledgerof General Ledger.
