The incoming document entry system processes electronic documents and paper invoices, in part automatically, and performs plausibility checks of the invoice contents in comparison with master data. The documents are posted in SAP systems. The program also processes electronic delivery bills, which are transmitted by network operators to the customer as the supplier of energy.
During the further development of the incoming document entry system, current technical and functional challenges have to be mastered. This is done in consultation with the specialist department via database (SQL) or code changes (.Net C#) to the application. As a result of legal changes in energy trading on the German or Austrian market or adjustments to the adjacent internal systems with which this application communicates, further developments must be made on an ongoing basis.
In particular, the following subtasks arise in the continuation of the further development of the incoming document entry system: the consideration of the changing market processes in the German and Austrian energy market and adaptation of the automated processes in the area of incoming document entry, the consideration of the SLP (standard load profile) quantity information supplied by market participants also in the delivery note processing and document verification, interface adaptations in the retrieval of the quantities through conversion to OBIS key figures for better process mapping in accordance with the market requirements, the adaptation of the market processes and market formats to 01. 10.2021 and the consideration of the iMS (intelligent metering system)/iME (intelligent metering equipment) mapping in the German and Austrian energy market and accordingly in the document verification.
