Dear Krishan,

Units of measure in accordance with the packaging hierarchy, you define a lower-level unit of measure for each alternative unit of measure. <b>The conversion factor relates to the lower-level unit of measure, not to the base unit of measure.</b>

The base unit of measure is piece. You define the following alternative units of measure:

Box <=> 10 pieces

Layer <=> 8 boxes

Pallet <=> 4 layers

For the box, piece is the lower-level unit of measure, for the layer, it is box, and for the pallet, it is layer.

A single conversion factor with 3 decimal places is used instead of two integer conversion factors.

The base unit of measure is piece, and the alternative unit of measure is meter. You define the conversion factor as follows:

<b>Meter <=> 0.25 piece, not 4 meters <=> 1 piece.</b>

The conversion factors in relation to the base unit of measure must not exceed 99999. For example, it is not possible to define that a box equals 1,000 pieces, and that a layer equals 100 boxes since a layer would otherwise consist of 100,000 pieces, which would not fit in the relevant field.

With regards,
