Creating a quantity unit of measure
You can create a quantity unit of measure.
About this task
To create a quantity unit of measure:
- From the tree in the application rules side panel, choose Products > Item UOM Master.
- The Product Item UOM Master window displays in the work area. Choose the Quantity UOMs tab.
- Choose the Create New icon. The UOM Details pop-up window displays in the work area.
- Enter information in the applicable fields. Refer to Table 1 for field value descriptions.
- Choose the Save icon.
Table 1. UOM details pop-up window.
Field Description UOM Code Select the unit of measure. UOM Description Enter a brief description of the unit of measure. LPN Type If the unit of measure represents a physical case, select Case.
If the unit of measure represents a physical pallet, select Pallet.
UCC Packaging Indicator Enter the UCC case code to be used as a standard for this all items associated with this unit of measure. Inventory Is Stored In This UOM Select Inventory Is Stored In This UOM if this unit of measure can be used when defining unique item ID/unit of measure combinations. Orders Can Be Placed Using This UOM Select Orders Can Be Placed Using This UOM if this unit of measure can be used when associating alternate ordering units of measure with a particular item ID/unit of measure combination. Allow Fractional Values in Conversion Select Allow Fractional Values in Conversion if you want to allow quantities of a fractional value when converting quantity from the inventory unit of measure to the alternate ordering unit of measure.
Otherwise, it is assumed that the ordering unit of measure is always a positive integer multiple of the inventory unit of measure.
For example, an item has an inventory unit of measure of EACH and an ordering unit of measure of Case. twelve EACH makes up one case. If you do not allow fractional values for the Case unit of measure you cannot ship ten units of the item and call it a Case.
UOM Conversion Precision If you selected Allow Fractional Values in Conversion, the number of decimal places you want fractions to be rounded up to. For example, if you enter 2, the number 1.456 is be rounded up to 1.46.
If you are configuring a time unit of measure, the time is rounded up to the number of minutes you specify in this field. For example, if you set the conversion precision to 20 for a time unit of measure, something that takes 14 minutes would be rounded to 20 minutes and something that takes 67 minutes would be rounded up to 80 minutes.Note: The number is always rounded up to the specified precision.
