Technote (FAQ)


Question

How is the field -Average Units/Day (ASSETMETER.AVERAGE)- in Maximo base Services calculated

Answer

This question is not straight forward to answer as it depends what continuous meter reading calculation method is used.
This will be either ALL, SLIDING-DAYS,SLIDING-READINGS or STATIC

Use the following example as a guideline:

1- Search the Meter reading table to see how many records there are between now and the previous date (now - ALL) ,sort this by desc;
2- Get the total Delta value of all records received from Step 1;
3- Calculate the day difference between the first record and the last record from the result getting from Step 1;
4- Average = Total Delta Value / Day Difference ( step 2 divided by step 3 )
