When petroleum products are traded, volumes have to be converted into weight, and vice versa. It is vital for this calculation to be performed correctly because even the smallest inaccuracy will affect key processes in the supply chain of oil and gas companies – from the safety of the loading and warehousing operations through to the computation of tax liability.
OpenTAS QCM (Quantity Conversion Module) offers a proven, precise and extremely flexible set of functions for quantity conversion: One single system for accounting, terminal management, and administration.
The tool can be deployed as a stand-alone system accessed over RFC (Remote Function Call) as well as in any Terminal Administration System like OpenTAS. Beyond that it works as an integral part of ERP/SAP systems and industry solutions such as SAP IS Oil and SAP SDM (Secondary Distribution Management for Oil & Gas). This standardized solution is highly cost-effective in terms of both procurement and maintenance.
