Base UOM in EA and issue unit in KG. Need requirement to be generated in KG instead of EA.

Hi,

I have a scenario wherein the raw material is having base UOM as EA and issue unit as KG. Also the 30 KG= 1EA conversion is added. I the BOM for FG this material is in KG so the requirement calculated as per BOM is in KG but in the stock requirement list the requirement is generated as 1 EA even if the qty required is 1.2 KG. Unnecessary 30 KG i,e, 1 EA requirement is generated.. ANy suggestion for this scenario other than making Base unit of measure as KG ?

    Hi Anand,

    I think the system is working correctly. you have maintain the unit EA, rather than you have to maintain unit PC

    The difference between each an piece is that , in each you can not have the decimal places and in pieces you can have decimal places.

    Have you maintain the production unit.

    The best solution would be to change the base unit from EA to PC.

    regards

      Hi Solomon,

      Many thanks for addressing to the issue that I am facing. I have maintained issue unit and purchase order unit of measure both as KG. I agree to the point that I can make Base UOM as PC so that I can maintained it in decimals but this is not possible as business wont allow it. Another thing is that there is a conversion of 1 EA = 30 KG maintained. When I have a demand of only 1.2 KG suppose for this material still the PR of 1 EA is generated. Is there any other way, I can treat this so as to get the procurement proposal generated of the exact quantity as my demand.

      Thanks

    Hi Anand,

    As I said, the system is working correctly,

    What you can do it that, in CUNI you can make the EA basu unit of measure with the decimal places.
