Different SO UOM/productionUOM and wrong excise posting


We have an issue with make to order scenario where we receive order for knitted fabric in meters whereas production of knitted fabric is accounted for in KGs. As per the excise chapter id, excise records of knitted fabric is required to be maintained in KGs.

However in SAP, all the excise postings are done based on the sales UOM and not the production UOM. Is there any way we can configure SAP to update excise records of some material by an alternate UOM instead of the sales UOM.

Looking forward to your valuable inputs to resolve this issue.

    Hi Saji,

    you can maintian alternate UOM in material master.

    In the material master click on the additional data and then select the UOM tab.

    here you can maintain alternate UOM and their conversions...

    Hope this solves your problem... if not revert back

      Thanks Velu for your reply.

      We do maintain alternate unit of measure and we also have batch level conversion of quantity. However, as per SAP if the sale unit of measure is Meters, all the excise postings and excise invoice will be in meters and not KGS, which is the production quantity and standard quantity as per excise rules.

      Can you suggest any work around for this?

      Thanks in advance.
