A tolerance limit is 0.5% 2017-01-06
From Joe:
Dear Sir/Madam,

How can I describe the following.

My volume tolerance limit is 0.5%,regardless of quantity.

Say , My total volume output is 344,714 Litres and benchmark volume is 348,194 Difference of 3480Litres, this would give me a percentage of 0.999.

Which is above my tolerance.
How can I explain this high tolerance limit even though volume difference is minimal.
