Oil and Gas Quantity Conversion in the Sales Cycle
In the sales cycle, the oil and gas quantity conversion is integrated in the rush order, the delivery, and the billing document. The oil and gas quantity conversion does not take place during order entry for standard orders.
Oil and Gas Quantity Conversion in Rush Orders
The creation of a rush order results in the order and the delivery being created in one step. When you save the order, the system automatically creates a delivery in background mode and starts the oil and gas quantity conversion.
You create a rush order when:
- Your customer would like to pick up the product immediately
- You deliver the product to your customer immediately
- You have already carried out the delivery, but the order and the delivery still have to be created in the system
Activating the Oil and Gas Quantity Conversion
You activate oil and gas quantity conversion by doing the following:
- Using an HIM material
- Entering the order quantity
- Entering the storage location for the material
- Saving the order. The system then automatically creates a delivery and starts oil and gas quantity conversion.
If you change the delivery quantities, a new oil quantity conversion is started by the system. If you enter the storage location (if it is not already in the order), the oil and gas quantity conversion is carried out.
The system calculates the base quantity (in the stock keeping unit of measure) in the delivery with the help of the oil and gas quantity conversion, and saves it there. In addition to the base quantity, the quantities are calculated in the units of measure of the unit of measure group.The system expands the list of units of measure to be calculated.
In addition to the units of measure that are defined in the unit of measure group, units of measure are copied from the contract or order. As a part of that, the system searches in the contract or the order for units of measure that are neither in the unit of measure group nor defined as a base unit of measure, volume, or weight unit of measure. If an additional unit of measure is found, the corresponding quantity is calculated in that unit of measure in the oil and gas quantity conversion.
Oil and Gas Quantity Conversion in the Delivery
You activate the conversion when you use an HIM material, and when you enter the delivery quantity and the storage location.
For deliveries in which picking has to be carried out, the entry of the pick quantity triggers the oil and gas quantity conversion, if the oil and gas quantity conversion has not yet been carried out. The delivery quantity has to correspond to the pick quantity.
Once the oil and gas quantity conversion has been carried out, every change of the delivery quantity or the storage location will lead to the quantities being recalculated.
Transportation and distribution of bulk products (TD – Transportation and Distribution) consists of three broad areas:
- Bulk product loading
- Delivery confirmation
The oil and gas quantity conversion is integrated in the following areas:
- Loading confirmation
- Delivery confirmation
Oil and Gas Quantity Conversion in the Billing Document
During the billing process, the system does not carry out an additional quantity conversion. The quantities are calculated only at the time of delivery creation and stored in the various units of measure with the delivery.
