Fleet management : Steps for monitoring of fuel consumption
Hello to everybody,
These are the basic steps for monitoring of consumption in the fleet management using PM (Plant Maintenance) module.
It is not very common to use these functionality, so I think that this guide will be useful.
You can follow these points:
1- Units of measurement – CUNI transaction
A) Choose dimensions
SURFACE: Consumption / Activity : i.e. : Liters / 100 km
SURINV: Activity / Consumption: i.e. : Km / liter
VOLFLO: Volumetric caudal : i.e. Liters / Hour
B) Once you have chosen your dimension, let’s créate the unit:
Inside convesion area, conversión is done between entry unit and exit unit, in terms of:
- Simple formula: (if numerator and denominator is enough):
N * Unit in T006 table = Z * IS (International System of Units) unit
i.e. : 100 * centimeters = 1 * meter
1 * hour = 3600 * seconds (as the example above)
- Complete formula :
valor in IS unit = (Z/N) * 10 **E (T006 valor unit) + K
273,15 = (5/9) *10 **0 * 32 + 255,3722
2- Fleet management customizing
These are the customizing points:
The interesting points are:
– Define Special Measurement Positions for Fleet Objects
We select the group units, depending on whether the unit belongs to SURFACE, SURINV or VOLFLO.
– Define Calculation Method for Fleet Consumption Values
We add the unit in the corresponding calculation method.
3- Fleet master data
A) The first point is to create characteristics in CT04 transaction for Distance, Fuel and Time
B) The second one is to add the counters at the vehicle in IE02: Distance, Fuel and TIme
In vehicle master data (View. “Vehicle technology”), define the calculation method for the monitoring of consumption.
i.e. : 1 (Usage volumen / distance)
C) In IFCU transaction, we créate measurement documents for the previous vehicle
After various measurement documents created, we can see consumption information. The easiest way to reach this information is through vehicle master data in IE02:
Button “Measuring points / Counters”
Click with the mouse on the counter you want to see the infor related and click in button “MeasDocuments”
You will see these screen
Execute the report and will show all the measurements related to these vehicle:
Also you can see an evolution graph with the button “Measurement Document Graphic” (Ctrl+Shift + F9)
Moreover, you can see more info at the vehicle master data in IE02 at the calculator button:
