The IS-U process for billing and invocing is:

1. Create Meter Reading Orders

2. Download / Print Meter Reading Orders

3. Read the meter (outside SAP IS-U)

4. Upload / Manual Entry of Meter Reading Results

5. Billing the installations (mass billing)

6. Invocing the created billing documents

7. Print the invoices

The prerequisite for this process is that master data must exist in the system

The process to create master data in the standard SAP IS-U sistem is:

1) Create Technical Objects:

1.1 Create Connection Object

1.2. Create Premise

1.3 Create Installation

1.4. Create Device

1.5 Install Device in the Installation

2) Create Business master data

2.1 Create Business Partner

2.2 Create contract account

2.3 Create Move In (Move the business partner into the premise).

These are the stepts to create a billing master data construct.

2) Configure Rate types

3) Define Rate

4) Create regster operands

5) Define fact groups

6) Create Schema

7) Create Rate category

8) Create Rate Determination.
