In a recent SAP community blog entry, Girish Nair provides an excellent and detailed summary on the Quantity Conversion challenges in the oil & gas industries.
The certification process for QuantityWare BCS 30B on SAP S/4HANA 2020 has been started. We expect it to be concluded by the end of 2020.
Certification will be posted in a news item when achieved.
Development for the next QuantityWare BCS 3.0 CSP (CSP02 on ECC 600, CSP01 on S4/HANA) has started as planned on Juli 1st. The contents of this major enhancement have been published in our earlier news item. Development close has been set to March 31st , 2021. Certified BCS consultants will be invited to participate in the planned test phase in July and August 2021 – after technical consolidation and successful unit test completion.
To accurately reflect the nature of the agreements between QuantityWare and our customers, Licenses are now named “Usage Keys” throughout our web presences and documents. Some web or portal screens have been renamed as a result, including the Usage Questionnaire – UQ (formerly License Questionnaire – LQ) and Test Usage Key Request – TUKR (formerly Test License Request Form – TLRF).
To further transparency and understanding of our service offerings to customers, we have created a single document which defines our support:
• availability times
• response times
• ticket priority re-organisation
• necessary pre-requisites per ticket priority
See our Support Service Priority Definition document for further details.
ASTM D1250 has been issued as a new version with the designation ASTM D1250-19e1. With this new version, the API MPMS Chapter 11.1 Addendum 1 and 2 are editorially repositioned in ASTM D1250. QuantityWare BCS supports ASTM D1250-19e1 with an advanced development (see News Item).
Owing to the current international Corona Pandemic and the resultant travel restrictions, we have postponed the BCP Certification course offered on 27.07.2020 until 26.10.2020.
The BCG course planned for 26.10.2020 has been postponed until 2021.
Keep safe and Healthy!
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.
