Business Context and Use

The business object Meter Reading Document enables the management of meter readings and meter reading results in SAP for Utilities. Readings are either taken periodically for periodic billing, according to the measurement task, or aperiodically, such as for control meter readings and readings at the time of device replacement, removal, or disconnection.

Readings can also be taken for a certain activity, such as a move-in or a removal. In this case, the meter reading is triggered directly by the activity.
