Re Estimation Should Be Performed When Estimate Values Are Adjusted By Regular Reads. (Doc ID 2542584.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 07, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management - Version 2.1.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 2.1.0.3 version, Environment

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Re estimation should be performed when Estimate values are adjusted by Regular reads.

On 10-3 for meter 15100610, the 10-3 read came in.
On 10-30, the stop for 11-5 was done, and MDM estimated a read from 10-3 to 11-5.
On 11-2, the 11-2 read came in. MDM marked its overestimate Do Not Use. Also on 11-2, the new estimate from 11-2 to 11-5 was created.
However, when the new 11-2 to 11-5 generated, MDM only took its original estimated quantity from 10-3 to 11-5 of 692.067 and subtracted the quantity from the 11-2 read of 117. Therefore the quantity from 11-2 to 11-5 ended up being 575.067.

Expectation: When Estimate values are marked as DO NOT USE by high quality read, MDM should re-estimate remaining period instead of just adjusting scalar quantities

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------

Re estimation should be performed when Estimate values are adjusted by Regular reads.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Perform estimate
2. Enter read with date/value smaller than estimate
3. Notice reconciliation IMD is created but is only using earlier estimate as a basis instead of re-estimating based on latest regular read

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, estimate is imprecise.
