Trend Estimation Issue in CCB (Doc ID 1264042.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 17, 2010

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing - Version: 2.1.0 and later   [Release: 2.1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal



 Production was configured to not allow the Trend based estimation unless the number of reads for the trend area, class, and UOM combination reaches 99999999. It was also stopped the execution of the TREND batch so the reads in the trend table do not reach the figure configured, hence not allowing the generation of trend based estimated bills.

 Trend based estimated bills were still getting generated/

  The document "BP03MeterRead.doc" - page 11. states:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note.You do not have to change the trend classes to indicate only one read is needed.This is because, if the system cannot find enough trends to satisfy the number of reads required by the trend class, it will use as many as exist.For example, consider a trend class that needs 10,000 reads to form a statistically significant sample for estimation, but at estimation time there is only one trend and this trend contains the results from only one read.In this situation, the system will use the consumption information on the single trend to calculate estimated consumption.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

However if needed confirmation from Product Development whether Trend Class - Number of Read settings will not stop the Trend Estimation. If this is correct, then one would like to know how they can stop system from doing only step 1 and step 2 of estimation and ignoring step 3.
