Investigating the feasibility of utilizing units of measure controlled at the org level, rather than master level, and the associated implications on internal requisition IR and internal sales order ISO functions. Performed the following test where Org 1, having UOM defined as lbs, places an internal requisition against Org 2, which has UOM defined as kgs. Our test revealed that from a plan-to-manufacture perspective, this is feasible. The work order quantity was converted on the floor where inventory was maintained in kgs for the fulfilling inventory org, shipped in kgs, and received in lbs. However, order management does not seem to be handling the variation when dealing with UOMs other than eaches. When the internal requisition is issued from Org 1 in lbs, the associated sales order against Org 2 is also in lbs, even though Org 2 operates in kgs. Is there a way to create an IR in a UOM other than that defined for the initiating org, and to call the conversions to do the associated translation, so that the fulfilling org sees the ISOs in their defined primary unit of measure? Could this possibly be accomplished via sourcing rules, such that requisitions always order in the fulfilling org's unit of measure? Or, are their profile options that would dictate using the UOM of the destination org?
