Abstract: This paper focuses on the integration of metrology principles in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. The authors discuss the development methodology and the implementation of a metrology oriented software application for the calibration of oil reservoirs. The application is integrated with an existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system of a large oil and gas company. The software application was developed in the SAP (System and Applications Products) programming environment ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming), using the latest Web Dynpro WD technology. The development methodology includes the analysis, implementation and testing of the software application. The application includes models: dispatcher model, body-leasing model, calibration given outside (fixed price). The metrology software application is presently being tested in a large oil and gas company and handles the management of tank oil calibration.

Keywords: Enterprise Resource Planning, Metrology System, Cyber-Physical Systems.
