Since you are using Fiber Manager data you really need to recreate the data in the back office to allow the AU's and favorites to be used. At the most basic level you could load the data into ArcMap as you described and then place new Fiber Favorites by snapping to the field-collected data. If you wanted to get more automated you could build in some customizations that would perform these tasks for you. The customization would basically load each field-collected record and then automatically use the appropriate Fiber Favorite to recreate the data with all related records and AU's firing. Doing this through a back office ArcMap edit session is very important because of the fiber geometric network AND because of the above mentioned relationships and AU's. We have done similar loads elsewhere though and its certainly doable... the key us usually that you would have the required minimal attribution in the field (for fiber, the fiber count, OH/UG, and a unique fiber name, etc.). I hope this gives you some ideas...
Thank you very much. I hope all is well with everyone at S.S.P.
