Dear Vanisree,

function module OIB_QUANTITY_CONVERSION is part of the SAP QCI sub screen (function group OIB_QCI_SUB_SCREEN). It basically calls the central oil & gas product conversion function OIB_QCI_QUANTITY_CONTROL (perform quantity_conversion).

Function OIB_QCI_QUANTITY_CONTROL is documented in English by SAP, just navigate to transaction SE80 (log on to your system in English) and select function group OIB_QCI, there you choose function OIB_QCI_QUANTITY_CONTROL and select the push button "Function Module Documentation".

Depending what you want to achieve within your development, you may also be able to utilize function OIB_QCI_CONVERSION_SIMPLE, which has a less generic interface tailored by SAP for application developers, that function is also documented.

Since oil quantity conversions, and even more so natural gas and LNG quantity conversions, are very complex, this complexity is tackled with the generic interface you observed.

That is one of the many reasons why e.g. QuantityWare offers the SAP certified products BCP 10A and BCG 10A, which contain a Petroleum Measurement Cockpit / Gas Measurement Cockpit and complete configuration templates to help reducing the complexity in designing & running complex oil & gas quantity conversions:

I hope this helps a bit,

Kind regards,

Markus
