Calculate Average Meter Usage

This document explains how you calculate average meter usage from old meter readings.


The average yearly usage for one or more meters on an individual item is calculated. This is used for planning preventive service activities where the service interval is based on meter readings.

Before you start

Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Meter. Calculate Average Usage' (SOS345).

  2. Press F13 to go to the P panel where:

    • The E panel is entered as the opening panel
    • E and F are entered in the field for panel sequence.
  3. Press Enter to go to the E panel.

  4. Enter selection criteria in one or more of the following fields:

    • Owner – the owner of the individual item
    • Customer site – where the individual item is located
    • Address number – where the individual item is located at the customer site
    • Customer group – which group the customer belongs to
    • Individual item number – the unique number of the individual item
    • Item number – the number of the individual item in 'Item. Open' (MMS001)
    • Individual item group – the name of the group of individual items to which the individual item in question belongs
    • Equipment – the name of the equipment group to which the individual item in question belongs

    The average meter usage is to be calculated based on the meter readings within this interval.

  7. Enter the minimum number of readings that must have been performed to qualify as a basis for average meter usage in the 'Minimum number of readings' field.

  8. Select whether the calculation of the average usage is to update the old values. If not, the calculation result is a proposal.

  9. Write a heading for the calculation in order to distinguish between the different calculations in printouts and reports.
