MDM Incorrectly Estimating Bills - Due To Insufficient Data When Historical Data Exists (Doc ID 2212333.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management version and, Scalar Estimation VEE rule is creating estimates with 0 value when there are measurements from different contact on the same Service Point. In that case, estimation is done by considering historical data from different contact and no insufficient exception is thrown in that case, since rule was able to find the historical data from different contact.

Steps to Recreate

1. Create Device, Device Configuration, Scalar Measuring Component and Install the Device and attach a usage subscription to the service point with a contact

2. Attach Scalar Estimation VEE Rule to the MC with the following values:

Scalar Estimation VEE Rule Values
Parameter Value
Historical Percentage Required 100
Historical Look First Last Year
Exclude Prior Installations for Different Customers Always
Historical Pre-Window 30
Historical Post-Window 4
Allowed Historical System Estimated Data(%) 100
Allowed Historical User Edited Data(%) 100
Interim Reading High Threshold Percentage 300
Interim Reading Low Threshold Percentage 30
Condition Value for Estimates Created System Estimate

3. Create Data on Scalar as follows:

Measurement Data
02-01-2015-00.00.00 0 0
03-01-2015-00.00.00 100 100
04-01-2015-00.00.00 200 100
05-01-2015-00.00.00 300 100

4.Remove the install event on '09-01-2015-00.00.00'.

5. Create Device, Device configuration and Scalar measuring component and install this device on the above service point with install date/time '10-01-2015-00.00.00'. Attach a new usage subscription with a different contact for the service point.

6. Submit a reading on 07-14-2016-00.00.00 on new Scalar Measuring component.

7. Now, Create an Estimation IMD on 07-15-2016-00.00.00

8. Verify that the IMD gets finalized with 0 and System Estimate even though the contact is different.
