Requirements for decimals of pieces

Hello all,

I have to include in BOMs components such in this way:

- base unit of measure: pieces

- quantity in BOM: 0,20 piece x 1 finished product quantity

this means 1 piece of the component will be "consumed" every 5 pieces of finished product.

The goal is to plan the component in pieces but to consume it in decimals. Rounding should be done only at planning level.

The problem is that "pieces" does not allow decimals. I've tried to put decimal pieces in BOM but the system roundes them.

Even if I create a new UM similar to pieces with decimals (PZZ), since it is not the base unit of measure, the system does not consider requirements in this second UM but in base one. (I've maintained Material Master for component, MRP views and Scheduling with the new UM).

Any tip?

    Dear Nue,

    Maintain the Bom Base quantity as 5 in the Bom header. In the child component details maintain as 1 piece. Thereby, the system understands that for every piece of the child component, 5 pieces of header material can be produced.

    Hope this answers ur query.

      Hi Kiki,

      I know what u mean, but even if I've told them it's a little bit "creative" this solution, they want it the same.

      Thank you for the tip 😊
