# Tolerance Keys BR & BW

Currently Being Moderated

Hi,

Can anyone please explain me the use of Invoice Blocking Tolerance Keys BR & BW?

Will be a great help if you can send me the link of any material on these tolerance keys.  In the standard documents on tolerance keys, nothing explained about BR & BW.

BW- Percentage OPUn variance (IR before GR)

BR- Percentage OPUn variance (GR before IR)

Hello Ashok,

BR: Percentage OPUn variance (IR before GR)

The system calculates the percentage variance between the following ratios: quantity invoiced in order price quantity units : quantity invoiced in order units and quantity ordered in order price quantity units : quantity ordered in order units. The system compares the variance with the upper and lower percentage tolerance limits.

Example:

PO         100 KG (order unit)   ->     1 PC (order price unit)

Invoice    80 KG                     ->     1 PC

1PC / 80 KG               1 PC / 100 KG (base)

80%                          100 %

-> this means 20% variance

BW: Percentage OPUn variance (GR before IR)

The system calculates the percentage variance between the following ratios: quantity invoiced in order price quantity units: quantity invoiced in order units and goods receipt quantity in order price quantity units : goods receipt quantity in order units. The system compares the variance with the upper and lower percentage limits defined.

Hope this clears

Thanks for your reply.  As far as I know,

quantity ordered in order price quantity units -> taken from PO

quantity ordered in order units -> taken from PO

quantity invoiced in order units -> taken from invoice document

goods receipt quantity in order units -> taken from material document

From where the following two data are taken and how/when is it captured in SAP:

quantity invoiced in order price quantity units

goods receipt quantity in order price quantity units

Hi,

These tolelerance keys will be used when there exists a differrance in the Order Unit and its Order price unit.suppose if the PO is ordered for 10kg and if there exists price for 1 pc.( for this to happen a valid conversion need to be there in mmr).

If this is the case and if the GR is done before the IR, BR- Percentage OPUn variance will come into.

If IR is done before GR ,BW- Percentage OPUn variance (IR before GR) , will come into.

1.BR: Percentage OPUn variance (IR before GR)

The system calculates the percentage variance between the following ratios: quantity invoiced in order price quantity units : quantity invoiced in order units    and quantity ordered in order price quantity units : quantity ordered in order units. The system compares the variance with the upper and lower percentage tolerance limits.

Ex: for the above example given :if invoice is done before GR and in PC for say 10pc(for a PO ordered for 10kg)/ qty invoiced in PO units ....say KG ......( if PO is for 10kg at 1RS per PC privided 1.5kG=1PC  and for this PO it will be 1kg = 1/1.5 pc    and for 10KG = 10/1.5  = 6.66666PC approx ,and invoice is for 6 pc  at 6 RS.)

BW: Percentage OPUn variance (GR before IR)

The system calculates the percentage variance between the following ratios: quantity invoiced in order price quantity units: quantity invoiced in order units and goods receipt quantity in order price quantity units : goods receipt quantity in order units. The system compares the variance with the upper and lower percentage limits defined.

I have tried to explan hope this may clear your doubt.
