Alternative unit of measure in Product View

I'd like to know the mechanism of how to convert the qunatity between base unit and alternative unit in Product View.

Example:

[Assumption]

Material: MAT001, Base Unit=KG, Alternative Unit=PC(1PC = 10KG)

Planned OrderA: MAT001, Quantity=108(KG)

[Process]

1. Open the product view and check the quantity. Quantity of planned orderA is 108KG.

2. Change the unit from base unit(KG) to alternative unit(PC).

3. Check the quantity. Quantity is 11(PC)

On the other hand...

4. Open the Stock/Requirement list(MD04) in ECC and check the quantity. Quantity of planed orderA is 108KG.

5. Change the unit from base unit(KG) to alternative unit(PC).

6. Check the quantity. Quantity is 10.8(PC)

Why quantity of Product View is automatically round up?

    Hello Shohei,

    Please check in the material master in APO if you have any rouding rule set.

    You can check also on transaction /CUNI (APO) the settings for that conversion.

    With rules applied, you can have different conversion results in APO and ECC side.

    I hope it could be useful.

    Thanks and regards,

    Hello Michel,

    Thank you for the answer.

    Could you let me know more detail about how to check the settings that you mentioned?

    Which field of product master should I check?

    I checked Units of Measure tab but I couldn't find the rounding-related field...

    I also checked conversion setting of /CUNI transaction but settings of both ERP and APO were entirely same.

    Do you have any other ideas?

    Shohei

      Hi,

      Go to 'lot size' tab, there you find a sub-tab 'quantity and date determination'. There you can fix your rounding value. So that whenever a PR is generated it will follow the rounding rule.

      Thanks,
