Device Management

ISU/CCS Device management includes device technology , Device Installation , Meter reading and Inspection and certification of device. Device category/device is essentially identical to the material/equipment, hence all of the data and functions of the standard Logistics component are linked to Device Management module of ISU.

  • Inventory Management
  • Purchasing
  • Warehouse management
  • Plant maintenance
  • Classification system

In the IS-U Device Management component, we can use IS-U-specific data and functions over and beyond the functions available in the R/3 Logistics application component. These include the following data and functions: ­

Purpose of SAP Industrial Solution for Utilities (IS-U)

SAP Utilities (SAP IS-U) is a process-oriented sales and information system that supports all services of utility companies.

SAP Utilities helps to keep the business processes as streamlined and as efficient as possible. As a single software solution, SAP Utilities eliminates incompatible and isolated information in the back office.

SAP Master Data  manages the data that remains fixed for long periods of time. In IS-U, this data includes the business partners, contracts and contract accounts, connection objects (buildings and real estate) and the premises, installations, and device locations contained therein.

SAP Device Management module manages the installations, meter reading scheduling and metering of all devices for the utility company
