Units of Measure

Unit of Measure

    You define units of measure for tracking, moving, storing, and counting items. Primary Unit of Measure

    When you define an item you establish a primary unit of measure. The system tracks on-hand quantity and calculates transactions based on the primary unit of measure. Secondary Unit of Measure

    You can optionally establish a secondary unit of measure (dual unit of measure control) for an item. Secondary unit of measure can be used for cases where you need to track in two units of measure and there is no constant conversion between the two unit of measures (UOMs). For example, chickens can be tracked in pounds and eaches.

    If an item is under dual unit of measure control the system tracks on-hand quantity based on both the primary and secondary units of measure. For example, you can track an item in both eaches and liters.

Unit of Measure Class

Unit of Measure Class

    Unit of measure classes represent groups of units of measure with similar characteristics. A unit of measure class contains a base unit of measure. You use the base unit of measure to perform conversions between units of measure in the class. For this reason, the base unit of measure should represent the other units of measure in the class, and be one of the smaller units. For example, quantity is a unit of measure class and each, dozen, and gross are examples of units of measure within the class. The unit of measure each is the base unit of measure for this class.

Unit of Measure Conversions

Units of Measure Conversions

    A unit of measure conversion is a mathematical relationship between two different units of measure. For example, 16 ounces = 1 pound, or 2.2 pounds = 1 kilogram. If you want to transact items in units of measure belonging to classes other than their primary UOM class,

    you must define conversions between the base units of measure in different UOM classes. Refer to Guided Demonstration Defining Unit of Measure Conversions

Lot-Level Unit of Measure Conversions

Lot-Level Unit of Measure Conversions

    Lot specific conversions enable you to perform a specific inter-class conversion for a given lot. This enables you to establish more granular control over the transactional quantities of a lot. For example, the standard inter-class conversion for a lot controlled item is one gallon equals 15 pounds; however, when you receive a particular lot of the item, 1 gallon equals 16 pounds. You can create a lot specific unit of measure for this instance.

    You can create lot-specific unit of measure conversions for on-hand lots or lots with a zero balance. If you create a lot-specific conversion for a lot with on-hand quantities, you can automatically update the quantities in the system to more accurately reflect the on-hand quantity.
