SAP UOM, ISO UOM and Conversion


My company is diversfied company doing business in different industries and different regions. UOMs is one of the most challanging aspect of SAP implementation. I have few questions

Does SAP UOM table come with all ISO UOM already loaded? Is there an utility available in SAP which converts one standard UOM in to another standard UOM? A very basic example is 1 KG converts to 2.204622622 pounds. This is a standard conversion. We use complex UOMs such as Gallons per Hour. We would like to implement one UOM conversion in to another whereever that conversion is standard.

In short, we are looking for

1. Standard list of ISO UOMs

2. COnversion factors between standard uOMs.
