This program can be either run on-line or scheduled via a background job. It leverage’s the Node5 Architecture framework of Basis Technologies which enables any ABAP program to execute with parallel processing using background work processes. The user has the flexibility of deciding how many parallel processes can be allotted to the execution of the program. If scheduled in the batch, this can be set in the variant of the program. It breaks the work to be done up by equipment (meter) number range and processes each range independently.
Please note that if the program is used to “automatically release” implausible reads that are found within a certain delta consumption range, this program will automatically release implausible reads as an outcome. It leverages a separate program in the Torch package
(/BTR/MDR_PP_ISU_IMPL_AUTOREL) to achieve this. If this option is not selected, it will simply find all implausible reads in the system, determine tolerance limits (both upper / lower consumption and meter reading values, expected reading and consumption values and deviations from the set tolerances) and report on them.
