ISU Master Data Model Master data in ISU is primarily divided into 2 parts. 1. Business Mater data. 2. Technical Master Data.

___________________________________________________________________________________________ Page 3 of 42

ISU Data Creation

Business Mater data: Business Mater data comprises of Business Partner, Contract Account and Contract data objects which provide the customer information like - Customer Address - Bank details - Payment & Tax details - Type of contracts etc Technical Mater data: Technical Mater data comprises Premise, Connection Object, Installation and Device. These objects provide information about the technical attributes which are important in calculating the consumption for billing a particular customer. The significance of each object has been explained in the following chapters. Note: Before start creating the Master data it need to be made sure that the Regional structures, Tax codes, Account code, Account determination codes, Meter Read Units (MRU) and portions are configured.

Dos & Don’ts: a. Contacts are automatically created during customer move-in into a premise, so it is advisable not to create the contract explicitly. b. Only one contract can ever be assigned to an installation at any one time.


Create Device (IQ01)

A Device is an instrument used for measuring consumption, processing data, or controlling and protecting other instruments. Devices are managed in the Plant Maintenance (PM) application component as pieces of equipment with serial numbers. The device number is created in MM with the function Goods Receipt. At the utility company, the device is labeled with this number. The device number can also be generated when you create a device in IS-U. The device is identified by a unique material and serial number combination to distinguish it from other pieces of material that may have the same serial number. The equipment number is the same throughout the whole system. Device is synonymous to ‘Equipment’ in Plant Maintenance. Device can be from one of the device category like meter, sensor, counter, regulator, corrector or transformer. Fields to be considered while creating the Device: Mandatory Fields 1. Material: The Goods that are the subject of business activity.

___________________________________________________________________________________________ Page 24 of 42

2. The Serial Number master record is a combination of the material number and the serial number. 3. Category: - Key Distinguishing individual technical objects according to their use.

4. E.g. Machinery, Device 5. Construct Year: - Year in which the technical object was constructed 6. Valid From: - Date from which time slice is valid 7. Register Group: - Group of registers that belong to one or more devices. 8. Inspection Relevance of Device: - Specifies whether the device is to be included in a sampling procedure.

Dos and Don’ts You can use pieces of equipment by themselves (pure object-related structuring), or in combination with the component Functional locations (function and objectrelated structuring).


Create Connection Object (ES55)

A connection object is usually a building but can also be a piece of property or a facility, such as a fountain or construction site. Since an address is allocated to a connection object, the connection object links premises, device locations and connections to the postal regional structure. The connection object is a functional location from the Plant Maintenance (PM) application component. Therefore, maintenance is managed using the functions of the Service Management (PM-SMA) component, for example, if you wish to organize the repair and maintenance of devices at the connection object level. Maintenance and repairs are billed using the Sales and Distribution (SD) application component. Fields to be considered while creating the Connection Object: Mandatory Fields 1. Description: - Description of connection object 2. Street Address

4 Press {Save} (Ignore any error message due to the postal code, and accept the address). Note the Connection Object number in the status bar.

Dos and Don’ts For each connection object you can define any number of static notes. These can be printed on meter reading orders, for example, to give field service employees extra information. Example include "Ring Mr Y’s doorbell," "Beware of the dog," and so on. You can also sue the dynamic notes predefined in the system (for

example "Installation blocked for meter reading," "Meter reading already entered.")


Create Premise (ES60)

Represents a self contained unit within the building (e.g. an apartment or a shop).The Premise holds specific address data. (E.g. Project, Ground Floor, 3000 Hills wood Drive, Hills wood Business Park, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 0RS) The premise is an enclosed spatial unit that is supplied with energy, for example, an apartment or factory. The premise is allocated to a connection object and to the address of that connection object. A premise can have several utility installations. Since the premise is divisionindependent, you can allocate electricity and water installations to the same premise, for example.

Fields to be considered while creating the Premise: Mandatory Fields 1. Connection Object Optional Fields 1. Location supplement, floor, room number 2. Attributes – Premise type, Owner, No. of persons, Authorization group 3. Notes for premises

Create Installation (ES30) An installation groups together the devices, registers, and, if applicable, reference values that belong to the same division and are allocated to the same premise, and that are therefore billed together, such as an on-peak and an offpeak rate meter. An installation is allocated to one contract only. In exceptional cases (such as an installation under construction or an installation without an owner) an installation is not allocated to a contract. The billing-relevant installation data is managed historically. This enables you to change the rate category within a billing period, for example, without any problems.

Fields to be considered while creating the Installation: Mandatory Fields 1. Key Date: - Key Date for Selection According to Time-Related Validity 2. Division: - Type of utility (Electricity or Gas) 3. Premise: - Premise on which device installation is needed 4. Valid From: - Start date of validity 5. Billing Class: - Classification of Contracts within a division 6. Rate Category: - Classification of an Installation for Billing purposes 7. MR Unit: - Grouping of Installations and their devices and registers according to region. 8. Base period Category: - Determines whether to use the meter reading results from the previous period or the same period of the previous year in the extrapolation.

Dos and Don’ts a. The entries you make in the deregulation fields of the installation affect how the deregulation scenario is determined. b. You can change the valid fr. (valid from) date or the premise of an installation as long as a contract has not yet been allocated to that installation, and no devices have been installed. c. You can allocate a load profile to an installation. The allocation is related to the identification of the corresponding load profile. d. You can override the general rate category with the individual rate category of the installation (if you have made specific arrangements with the customer, for example).
