EnterpriseOne users have always had the ability to track inventory with units of measure that have a fixed conversion to a single unit. An example would be a case that always contains a fixed number of units at a fixed weight conversion.

Industries such as food and beverage, steel, and paper need to maintain inventory balances and record transactions in units of measure that do not have a fixed conversion. This would be necessary when an item is ordered or sold by quantity and priced by weight.

With the introduction of the Dual Unit of Measure (UOM) enhancement in EnterpriseOne 8.9, companies are able to track inventory in one unit of measure and transact and calculate price in a different unit of measure making for improved inventory accuracy and visibility. Dual UOM also has a picking option that can be activated per item for determining which unit of measure to use in committing inventory for an order. This will benefit any company that tracks inventory transactions in two variable units of measure, with non-standard conversions between units of measure. In addition, customers will have improved profitability from pricing in second unit of measure and billing based on actual versus standard weight.

Note: Receipt Routing and Landed Cost are not supported by dual UOM functionality.
