English term or phrase:variance
I need another word for "variance", but not "écart".
I need to be able to distinguish between "variance" and 'discrepancy" in a retail software program.
Variance is the amount allowed that a stock count can vary from the system stock on hand level and not be considered a discrepancy. Discrepancy is a variance that is "out of range" and requires the approval of a manager.
I have to use "écart" for "discrepancy", what can I use for "tolerance" that will convey the correct meaning?
\"La FAO emploie la méthode du bilan alimentaire, qui dépend de la fiabilité des données relatives à la production vivrière, laquelle est toute relative pour les cultures de racines et tubercules des petits agriculteurs et les cultures de céréales en Afrique subsaharienne. Il convient d\'ignorer les variations mineures sur de courtes périodes. Tous les chiffres sont arrondis.\" http://www.fao.org/docrep/x4400f/x4400f11.htm
