Smart Metering

A smart meter tool equiped with an advanced technology which determines the precise way and eventually in real-time the energetic private consumption or for a building or company by transmitting it, by phone or PLC (Power Line Communication), to the smart meter counter. Can we conclude that the Smart Metering is above all technologic?

Certainly not. According to the information received from actors of the liberalized energy market, several core processes will be impacted by the putting into service of the Smart Metering system.

Therefore Tetrade Consulting developped an internal project about smart metering with the following goals :

To create a complete list of impacted core processes by the putting into service of Smart metering counters on supplier’s and distributor’s network manager side;

To draft the core processes impacted before and after the process by SADT methodology (Structured Analysis and Design Technique) ;

Ananlyse the communication interfaces between a SAP IS/U back-end system and the smart counter.

After this phase, Tetrade will organise several workshops, in cooperation with some customers in order to precise and validate le defined model and to emphasize the changes generate by the putting into service of Smart Metering.
