The QuantityWare web site contains a considerable amount of unique information for QuantityWare customers and non-customers. We are constantly striving to make our website easy-to-use and have thus slightly changed the Knowledge Base screen and fully integrated the FAQs in their own “Support”-area. We felt that the Knowledge Base screen-header was “overloaded” and caused unnecessary scrolling when searching for, and reading documents, thus we have remedied this. If you have any comments or suggestions concerning the website, please feel free to share them with us.
ASTM D1250 has been issued as a new version with the designation ASTM D1250-19. This version is necessary due to the publication of API MPMS Chapter 11.1 Addendum 2 and thus requires an advanced development such that the calculation models assigned to API MPMS Chapter 11.1 can be configured (via a switch in the conversion group settings) to apply non-rounded volume correction factors (see News Item).
This advanced development is now available with Note 000090.
In addition, a new QuantityWare Working Paper – ASTM D1250-19 Addendum 2 Analysis – is also available.
QuantityWare has completed the analysis of the second edition of API MPMS Chapter 11.2.4 (see news item from 20.01.2020). The implementation procedures defined in this second edition of MPMS Chapter 11.2.4 are identical with those of the first edition. The GPA TP-27 has now been adopted as GPA standard GPA 8217. All QuantityWare BCS implementations based on GPA TP-27 are thus compliant with this second edition. With the next QuantityWare BCS 3.0 CSP (planned delivery date Q3 2021) the nomenclature changes (from GPA TP-27 to GPA 8217) will be reflected in the BCS templates and online documentation.
The QuantityWare Bulk Calculations Solution 3.0B has successfully completed its re-certification as the only “SAP® Certified – Powered by NetWeaver” quantity conversion and governance solution available for the SAP Oil & Gas solution; thus BCS 3.0A has now been validated by QuantityWare for productive usage on SAP Oil & Gas on SAP®NetWeaver 7.50 EhP8 Systems.
The planned delivery date for the next QuantityWare BCS 3.0 CSP (CSP02 on ECC 600, CSP01 on S4/HANA) has been set to Q3 2021. This CSP will contain:
- New automated monitoring capabilities for the BCS Installation Test, License Expiry and Automated Test Scenarios.
- New multiple-document analysis and monitoring options for PMC and GMC Business Document Analysis functions.
- All advanced developments of BCS supported measurement standards updates and revisions:
ASTM D1250-19, ASTM D1550-18 , ASTM D1555-2016 , ISO 6578:2017 , AGA Report No. 8 – 2017 and ISO 6976:2016.
All required continuous improvement developments and template data extensions as described in individual news items.
Additional measurement standards update-related advanced developments will be included too.
- A renovated and enhanced BCS Template (client 045 Installation) based on our 14 years of experience and feedback from certified BCS consultants.
- All notes delivered after BCS 3.0 CSP01 on ECCC 600 / CSP00 on S/4 HANA, which are listed in Note 000067.
The detailed Release Notes for this CSP will be published in Q2 2021.
API MPMS Chapter 11.2.4 – Temperature Correction for the Volume of NGL and LPG Tables 23E, 24E, 53E, 54E 59E, and 60E” has been issued as a second edition in June 2019. It supersedes various historical ASTM and GPA standards, as well as the API/ASTM/GPA TP-27 (first edition API MPMS Chapter 11.2.4). The new GPA standard designation of this edition is GPA 8217. QuantityWare is currently analyzing this new edition with respect to calculation changes. The result of this analysis and plans for potential new implementation developments will be published in a separate news item in March 2020.
The Certification Training Schedule for our BCP and BCG training courses is now available for 2020.
For both training courses, online quotation and registration is possible.

The QuantityWare Bulk Calculations Solution 3.0B has successfully completed its certification as the only “SAP® Certified – Integration with SAP® S/4HANA” quantity conversion and governance solution available for the SAP Oil & Gas solution; thus BCS 3.0B has now been released by QuantityWare for productive usage on SAP Oil & Gas on S/4HANA 1909.
The certification process for QuantityWare BCS 30B on SAP S/4HANA 1909 has been started. We expect it to be concluded by the end of 2019.
Certification will be posted in a news item when achieved.
ASTM D1250 has been issued as a new version with the designation ASTM D1250-19. This version is necessary due to the publication of API MPMS Chapter 11.1 Addendum 2 (May 2019 – see news item). 10 changes are listed in Addendum 2 which are classified as “minor” modifications in ASTM D1250-19. One of these “minor” modifications requires that final densities and volumes should be calculated with unrounded volume correction factors (CTL, CPL and CTPL). This modification affects calculation results of the current implementation and thus requires an advanced development such that the calculation models assigned to API MPMS Chapter 11.1 can be configured (via a switch in the conversion group settings) to apply unrounded volume correction factors. This advanced development will be shipped via a QuantityWare note in Q2 2020.
