Maintaining different unit of measure per plant

Dear Experts,

This is some strange question, but I am sure many would have come across this.

We have Unit of measure and Order unit for a material maintained at client level (MARA Table). Then we maintain Alternate Unit of Measure in extra data for conversions. However, we don't have any way as per standard SAP to maintain Plant Specific Unit of Measure (eg: MARC Table).

For an example, we maintain a material with some rounding profile and lot size as per the supplier and plant, which becomes then applicable to all the plants that material has been extended to. However there are always different vendor and plant possible for each material. Also we have different pallet standard per different region, and same is the case with weight unit like LB against KG. In such case, if the planning becomes challenging.

Easiest wayout would be to go for a new material code itself with specific details, but it leads to multiple duplicates.

Has anyone come across this scenario and how did you deal with this?

    Hi Sachin,

    For planning purpose,

    1 . Raw Material - Maintain Purchase info record for Plant and Vendor combination with different UOM as per your requirement.

    2. Semi-finished / Finished - Maintain the production unit in Work scheduling view in the material master for each Plant (You can maintain different UOM for different plants).

    BR, Rosh

    Why cannot use info record(ME11) for each plant to have your requirement on unit of measurement(order unit) on plant specific!
