Hi Arpita,

Billing Cycle in ISU perspective starts with the creation of the Meter Reading Orders (MRO) and ends in the creation of the respective invoices ( also, called as Print Document).

Differenet stages in the Billing Cycle comprises of in the following order:

1. Creation of the Meter Reading Orders (MROs)

Note: While creating the MROs, Billing Orders (BOs) are automatically created in the system.

2.Meter readings are uploded in the system. The implausible records are separated based on the validations maintained in the system and worked upon according to the case specifically for the correction of the meter readings. For example, High/ low consumption.

3.Billing is done (normally a daily batch process). As result, Billing Documents are created.

4.Again, Invoicing is carried out (normally a daily batch process). The implausible records are again snatched out in a exception list based on the validations maintained in the system and worked upon according to the case specifically for the correction of invoice amount.For Example, High/ Low Amount. As a result, invoice document (Print Document) are created.

These records are sent for the printing.

All above-mentioned stages are essentially the part of the BILLING CYCLE.

Hope this clarifies your understanding for the process.

If you need more help, please revert.

Hi Arpita,

The IS-U process for billing and invocing is:

1. Create Meter Reading Orders

2. Download / Print Meter Reading Orders

3. Read the meter (outside SAP IS-U)

4. Upload / Manual Entry of Meter Reading Results

5. Billing the installations (mass billing)

6. Invocing the created billing documents

7. Print the invoices

The prerequisite for this process is that master data must exist in the system

The process to create master data in the standard SAP IS-U sistem is:

1) Create Technical Objects:

1.1 Create Connection Object

1.2. Create Premise

1.3 Create Installation

1.4. Create Device

1.5 Install Device in the Installation

2) Create Business master data

2.1 Create Business Partner

2.2 Create contract account

2.3 Create Move In (Move the business partner into the premise).

Another prerequisite would be to have billing master data in the system:

These are the stepts to create a billing master data construct.

1) Configure billing classes

2) Configure Rate types

3) Define Rate

4) Create regster operands

5) Define fact groups

6) Create Schema

7) Create Rate category

😎 Create Rate Determination.

I hope this will be helpful to you.
