Exam Topics

Devices and Measuring Components

  • Describe a device and the data structures used to represent them.
  • Describe a measuring component and the structures used to represent them.
  • Explain the relationship between devices and measuring components.
  • Explain scalar and interval measuring components.
  • Configure a new device type.
  • Configure a new measuring component type.
  • Configure a new device config type and associate a measuring component to a device.
  • Use the Duplicate feature to copy a device type or a measuring component type.
  • Use the Device Replicator to create copies of a device.

Service Points and Install Events

  • Describe a service point and the data structures used to represent them.
  • Describe an install event and the relationship between devices and service points.
  • Configure a new service point type.
  • Configure the set of valid device types for a given service point type.
  • Configure a new Install Event BO (business object).
  • Explain how an Install Event is transitioned by the execution of a command.

Measurements

  • Explain the differences between initial measurements, final measurements, and usage.
  • Explain the high level process of loading measurements through to calculating usage.
  • Explain the difference between raw, pre and post VEE (validate, edit and estimate) initial measurements.
  • Locate and view raw (if captured), pre and post VEE initial measurements.
  • Create a new IMD (initial measurement data) BO to store AMI head-end specific data.
  • Explain how scalar and interval IMDs differ, and how they are the same.

Activities

  • Explain activities and define what they can be used to represent.
  • Configure Activity Relationship Types to form parent/child relationships between activities.
  • Configure a new activity identifier type to enable a new activity identifier.
  • Configure relationships between activities and BOs.
  • Via the UI, identify the full list of Business Objects that are based on the Activity MO (maintenance object).

Device Events

  • Explain device events and what they are used to represent.
  • Explain event subscriptions.
  • Describe paired events and what they can be used to represent.
  • Locate and view the list of standard device event names.
  • Locate and view the mapping between the AMI specific head-end device event names and standard (product) event names for a given SGG adapter.
  • Set up a new external system to receive device events via an event subscription.
  • Configure a new, custom device event.

Usage and Event Upload

  • Explain the usage and device event load architecture at a high level and identify which parts of the initial load process MDM and SGG are responsible for, and which parts are handled by which technologies (Oracle Service Bus vs. Oracle Utilities Application Framework).
  • Explain the IMD and Device Event Seeder concepts and BOs, including lifecycle and rules, how they derive head-end, device and measuring component information and how the "real" IMD or Device Event BO is determined during load processing.
  • Identify where usage loading and device event loading configuration is defined in OSB (Oracle Service Bus), including how they are differentiated.
  • Explain the differences between the BASE and CM (customer modification) OSB projects and the reasons for segregating the configuration in this manner.
  • Examine and change CM OSB configuration examples provided as part of the Adapter Development Kit (e.g. the JCA Adapter configuration, Inbound Proxy Service, plain XML and CSV to IMD XML transformation Xqueries, etc).
  • Deploy custom XML and CSV file parsers to replace the examples provided as part of the ADK (Adapter Development Kit).
  • Systematically examine all locations where IMD and Device Event load errors can be reported to isolate where in the process errors are occurring.
  • Explain how (and during which part of the process) device events are created for MV90 data when processed by the productized MV90 SGG adapter.
  • Configure service providers and processing methods, provided by productized adapters, for usage and device event uploads.
  • Describe the configuration for mapping vendor specific units of measure, status codes, device event names, etc, to their standard product counterparts.
  • Describe the information on the payload stats totals and trends view.
  • Describe the XML schemas that define the Payload Statistics XML schemas.
  • Navigate to, view and describe the admin data related to Payload Statistics.
  • Load usage and manually accumulate stats for the payload that was processed.
  • Aggregate stats for the head end tied to the payload that was processed.
  • Configure the system to capture new, custom payload statistics.

Commands

  • Explain the command processing architecture, identify the common product design patterns, and identify which parts of the process are implemented in the OUAF vs. those that are implemented in BPEL.
  • Describe each of the commands generally supported by SGG adapters.
  • Configure the OUAF administration data and BPEL required for a new command based on the Adapter Development Kit.
  • Add a new element to a command's BO schema.
  • Describe the lifecycles of commands provided with the productized adapters (or the Adapter Development Kit).
  • Configure the OUAF administration data required to allow an external system to call SGG commands.

Adapter Development Kit (ADK)

  • Describe the purpose of the ADK and what it contains.
  • Add a meter to the test harness.
  • Review (Get) and set meter attributes in the test harness using Oracle Enterprise Manager and the test harness web services.
  • Change the state attributes (connected, commissioned, etc) of the meter by executing a command from SGG against the meter.

SGG Installation and Setup

  • Describe where all SGG components are installed, including OUAF components, OSB and BPEL composites, directories and files on the various server file systems.
  • Install the OUAF components of SGG base, as well as the OUAF, OSB and BPEL components of the Adapter Development Kit.
  • Configure all endpoints (JMS Queues, MDB, BPEL call-outs, XAI, AMI head-end web services, file system directories, etc) in the OUAF, OSB and BPEL for the Adapter Development Kit.
  • Set up a development environment for the ADK, including setting up a Java project, OSB project and BPEL project, and importing all code and composites provided as part of the ADK.
