Measurement Processing groups business objects and the related service operations needed to process measurement data.
|Software Component Version||ESM ERP 606|
The Measurement Processing process component covers the exchange of measurement relevant master data and meter readings. With the help of these services, you can request meter readings for a specific date, cancel such a request, upload the corresponding meter readings, and identify and read the corresponding meter reading documents.
In the context of smart meters, the communication takes place asynchronously between SAP systems and a meter data synchronization and unification (MDUS) system.
This process component communicates with other process components using the following interactions:
The following entities are part of this process component:
|Manage Measurement Reading In||An interface to perform maintenance functions for measurement readings.|
|Manage Meter Reading Card||An interface to manage meter reading cards.|
|Manage Meter Reading Document In||An interface to process meter reading documents.|
|Manage Utilities Measurement Task In||An interface to read measurement task data.|
|Measurement Reading In||Inbound Asynchronous Service Interface for Measurement Reading|
|Meter Reading Document In||An interface to send requests and receive confirmations for data handling with meter reading documents.|

|Measurement Reading||A Measurement Reading is a measurement reading that is read from a measuring device. On the basis of this reading, maintenance activities are performed at installation points or on individual materials. For example, the temperature of a coolant pipe is measured in Celsius and entered as 25 degrees Celsius.|
|Meter Reading Card||Meter reading card for transferring meter reading data.|
|Meter Reading Document||A Meter Reading Document is a document that contains data with regard to a planned and performed meter reading for one measurement task.|
|Utilities Measurement Task||A Utilities Measurement Task is a task used to provide measurements with time-dependent specifications in the Utilities sector, for example, consumption, energy, volume, power, and so on.|
The target group must run the IS-U back-end application component in order to use the operations that Measurement Processing contains.
In order to use the operations contained in the Measurement Processing process component, you must run SAP ERP Industry Extension Utilities, Waste & Recycling, the SAP for Utilities back-end component.
To be able to use the operations in the Measurement Reading business object, you must run the Measuring Points and Counters (PM-EQM-SF-MPC) application component.
The Measurement Processing process component enables communication with data of the following SAP ECC application components:
