Delivery Quantity Unit (pound LB) to be round up to whole number from base unit (kg)

Dear SAP Gurus,

We are into mill industry and facing typical requirement from our business. We mapped our business into variant configuration and activated batch specific unit of measure with batch management. Base unit is Kg for our finished and semi finished goods. Our stock unit is in Kg and sales unit is in MT.

Our one specific customer is asking us to deliver & invoice the goods in pound (Lb) with whole number only.Standard conversion from Kg to LB is 1 Kg = 2.2046246 Lb. So the inventory is converted as per the standard conversion and each batch stock is in decimal places with unit Lb from MMBE. Example below

Batch 01 - 2,235.000 Kg -> 4,927.336 Lb

Batch 02 - 1,979.000 Kg -> 4,362.952 Lb

During outbound delivery & Billing processing, we are expecting the quantity in unit Lb to be assign from batch as below. So that we can match the deliver quantity with billed quantity and its corresponding net value will be appropriate .

Batch 01 - 4927 Lb

Batch 02 - 4363 Lb

In nutshell, we want inventory to be roundup to whole number for alternate unit Lb for further processing so that the balance batch inventory should not left over with decimal.

Note: Tried with batch specific unit of measure (IS-MILL functionality) and not able to achieve due to conversion factor of 1Kg - 2.2046246 Lb.

Kindly suggest us the best practise to meet customer requirements.
