New: Default Values for Deregulation Scenarios


You can now define default values that determine which deregulation scenario applies to a certain point of delivery.

Previously, this function was primarily directed at distributors and suppliers. You were unable to use default tables to determine which service provider takes on which role.

In the deregulated market, the deregulation scenario determines how many installations or contracts are created for a customer, and which data is entered in fields used in Intercompany Data Exchange (IDE). To support automated processes, such as enrollment, or manual move-in, you can preassign data to fields in Customizing, or establish settings to reflect the market situation.

Using the default value procedure, you can determine the following information:

  • Which service types (and which services) are required?
  • Does the company bill customers itself, or through another service provider?
  • Does the company create its own bills and perform collection, or through another service provider?
If a service provider creates the bills for an external point of delivery service then the following applies:
  • Does this service provider own the receivables made by the external service provider, or does it perform convergent billing?

The answers to the above questions determine how many point of delivery services can be created as contracts, and how many as non-billable services.
The system also proposes the payment class in order to determine the terms of payment.

Effects on Existing Data

Effects on Data Transfer

Effects on System Administration

Effects on Customizing

To use this functon, maintain the following two Customizing tables:

In the case of some service types, the corresponding service provider must be entered as a default value.
This requires you to know the distribution company for the point of delivery, using which you can find the operational area.
Here you define the relationships to external service providers from a billing perspective. This entails:
  • Who calculates the bill

  • Who sends the bill to the customer and performs collection

  • Whether the bill is issued through convergent billing, or through accounts receivable pledging

The last point is especially important for the number of contracts that have to be created. If the bill is issued through accounts receivable pledging then the system assumes one contract is sufficient.
In the case of convergent billing, one additional contract is created for each convergent billing. In Release 4.62, the number of billed services for each point of delivery is restricted to two services.
