EDM configuration of usage factor

Hi experts,

As per a requirement received, we need to use synthetic profiles to transform a normal consumption (introduced in EL28 tx code) into a profiled consumption to be used in RTP interface. After reviewing the SAP information regarding synthetic profiles, I have some queries regarding how to trigger this usage factor / synthetic profile:

1) Amounts must be calculated using a RTP interface assigned at installation level with a LIMIT02 formula.

If I want to bill using a synthetic profile, how many profiles do I need to assign at installation level?

2) At rate steps, to bill the RTP interface, we use the following steps:

- QUANTI14 to calculate a non relevant for accounting amount as per the RTP interface.

- QUANTI06 to calculate the average price.

- Some intermediate steps to update the average price as per some facts.

- QUANTI01 to calculate the relevant for accounting amount using the consumption from RTP interface and final price.

If I want that the consumption to be used for billing is the total profiles total consumption using a synthetic profile, I have seen that I have to use the variant QUANTI24, but I dont see how to link this variant with the current rate steps. I have added it before QUANTI14 but usage factor does not seem to be used during the billing simulation tests done. This problem is related with the same question.

3) I have done some tests using the synthetic profile assigned at load profile at installation, but billing seems to ignore the usage factor even if I have assigned a usage factor value. Could it be that some configuration points need to be activated in order to trigger the synthetic profile usage factor? (We have not configured any source - target role relationhip)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Rafael

    Not sure about your requirements.

    The synthetic profiles are generally used in order to settle the consumption of certain group of customers.

    These non-interval based connections are billed by their periodic reads (eg. yearly).

    In billing you update the usage factor by means of variant QUANTI24.

    Settlement, allocation / reconciliation, then uses the updated usage factor to calculate consumption for the period of settlement.
