List of Interview Questions and Answers on SAP IS UTILITIES Updated 2022

1. What is Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable?

As a result of the high number of customers and invoices, waste disposal companies must create a large number of payment demands. To prevent you from having to enter this mass data in general ledger accounting, sub-ledger accounting has been integrated into Waste Management: Accounts receivable and payable. Contract accounts receivable and payable are specially designed to process mass data. At certain intervals, the system transfers the cumulated individual bookings to the general ledger in Financial Accounting (FI). You can also transfer sales or service invoices from the Sales and Distribution (SD) component to contract accounts receivable and payable. The goal of contract accounts receivable and payable is to automate all processes. Manual intervention is only necessary if an agent’s decision is required.

2. What are Processing Components?

Use this component to:

Create, change and display



Plan (resource planning and route allocation)



 3. What Interfaces used to connect?

As an alternative to an integrated solution, you can use generic interfaces to connect external, complementary products to SAP Waste and Recycling. Interfaces exist for the following systems:

Route planning system

Weighing data system

Board computer


4. What is Processing Data Exchange?

Before SAP IS-U 4.63, data was exchanged using IDE events. This means that during certain processes in IS-U, the IDE events are triggered and the data exchange is processed depending on the IDE communication control. 

5. What is Postal Regional Structure?

The postal regional structure enables you to do the following:

Manage postal codes, cities, and streets.

Check the accuracy of postal codes, cities, and streets.

Simplify the process of entering postal codes, cities, and streets.

When you create objects that refer directly or indirectly to an address, some fields may already contain default values (as in the connection object). In other cases, such as in the installation, you must have the system propose a value.

6. What is Data Archiving in SAP Utilities ?

In IS-U you can now archive billing documents, print documents, and budget billing plans. This means you can ease the load on your database at any time by archiving the correspondence you no longer need online. The documents are deleted from the database and written to the archive files. To display archived documents at any time using the appropriate standard IS-U transaction, always restore archives.
