We are facing an issue regarding the way the UOM conversion was designed in IBP versus what we know from ECC. For example, we have Product A with Base Unit 'CRN' et a conversion rule in ECC of 1 'PAL' = 1023 'CRN'.
In IBP we need to use a conversion factor, in this case 1/1023 = 0,000978 (rounded).
Now if we want to maintain data using the unit 'PAL' in IBP, for example 3 'PAL', IBP saves 3067,484662 'CRN' which makes 2,999999 'PAL' back.
I understand the internal conversion when IBP is saving data is somehow "hard coded" and we cannot set our own formula.
What are your thoughts about this issue?
I have tried to add an additional attribute to the master data type XXXUOMCONVERSIONFACTOR. By doing this and making it an key figure as attribute and adjusting the key figure formula, I am able to show the correct value.
But if I try to maintain a value, it saves using the unique conversion factor way.
