Query on Unit of issue

Hi,

In the material master (warehouse mgmt1 view), we have two unit of measures defined.

One is base unit of measure and the other is Unit of issue.

1. What is unit of issue and what it's used for?

2. Is it applicable only for materials issued from warehouse-managed storage locations?

Let me know.

Thanks,

Mohit

    hi,

    It is the unit in which the material is issued from the warehouse...

    If the field doesnot contain an entry, the system will assume that the unit is the unit of measure...

    Hope it helps...

    Regards

    1. What is unit of issue and what it's used for?

    Unit if issue is your unit is which you are issuing the goods from WM.

    e.g. your base unit is LB but when you issue the goods from WM it is always in Tone or Box in this case you have to define the unit of issue

    2. Is it applicable only for materials issued from warehouse-managed storage locations?

    yes, because other wise you will have sales Uom.

    Hi,

    When a quantity is assigned for the first time to a processing method, the unit of measure is calculated as follows:

    If the quantity is to be cross-docked, the unit of measure at goods receipt is used. If the assigned quantity cannot be converted to this unit of measure, the cross-docking quantity is displayed in base units of measure.

    In the case of all other processing methods, the quantity is displayed in the unit of issue of the issuing site. Sometimes the unit of issue cannot be used, for example in the following cases

    The quantity cannot be converted to the unit of issue.

    The unit of issue of the issuing site is not known.

    The unit of issue of the issuing site is the same as the base unit of measure.

    In these cases, the planned unit of issue of the relevant issue document item is displayed. If the assigned quantity cannot be converted to this unit of measure, the quantity for the processing method is displayed in base units of measure.

    pls let me know if u need more info

    Hi,

    Unit of issue: - Unit of issue is used at the time of issue material for any transaction.

    But main use is if u have three unit of measure.

    1) Base unit of measure

    2) Order unit

    3) Unit of issue.

    If u create purchase order system put order uint of measure but if u create stock transfer order for material plant to plant at that time system put unit of issue for material.(If variable active is off).

    Mostly whenever material is issue for production system put always unit of issue.

    Regards,
