Can we calculate the Total Calculated Volume (TCV) as a target quantity for our crude oil MQCI conversion group?

The definition of the Total Calculated Volume (TCV) is:

TCV equals gross standard volume (GSV) plus free water (FW) – API MPMS Chapter 12.1.1.

TCV = GSV + FW ( in appropriate UoM, e.g. FW and GSV in barrels)

You utilize a QuantityWare BCP crude oil conversion group, that is configured to calculate gross and net quantity values (see separate FAQ) . You want  the TCV quantity being calculated as additional quantity value.


The free water (FW) volume is given as 10 barrels at 60 °F.
The GOV is 100 000 barrels at 60 °F, which is your transaction quantity.

The system shall calculate a TCV of 100 010 barrels.

Depending on your business process design and configuration (e.g. TSW ticketing, delivery processing …) you may include this simple calculation step into your business process logic, such that you can calculate a TCV quantity value for the calculations – by extending the BCP crude oil MQCI conversion group with a customer specific ABAP function as part of a Generic Customer Development(GCD). That function performs the simple calculation for one dedicated (new) TCV transaction UoM (e.g. TCV). The FW quantity value can be passed to the MQCI as customer specific parameter.

Certified QuantityWare BCP consultants have access to this GCD via the Support Portal. Read Note 000092 for details.
