ScenarioIn a deregulated scenario there are many market players(serviceproviders)So a Distributor is responsible for the supplying of electricity tothe customer using grids. He is also responsible for gettingperiodic meter readings and them sending the readings to thesupplier for billing the customer.A supplier is billing the customer on the basis of the readings heis getting from the distributor. So the point of communication forthe customer is the Supplier. The Distributor gets his dues fromthe Supplier.Now if there is a master data change (BP ,CA ,Conn Obj ,PremiseAdd, PoD) then it should be reflected in both the distributors andthe suppliers system.For this replication data exchange processes need to beconfigured.
Important PointsThe 2 data exchange processes used are CHCD_OUT andREQ_CHANGE.CHCD_OUT is for outbound document processing andREQ_CHANGE is for inbound document processing.There are event type depending on the master data which can beseen while configuring the data exchange process.Outgoing processed have the prefix CH incoming have the prefixRQ.Documents are send in standard Idocs in UTILIMD format.The BAdI implementation CL_IDX_IM_ISU_IDE_DATECONNECTprovides special checks that suppresses a data exchange task if datahas changed that is not relevant for the data exchange. Make sureits active otherwise data exchange tasks will get triggered on anychange.
