Base and Alternative Unit of Measure In Aluminium Profile Industry



Do you have any experience about basic unit of measure usage for semi-finished and finished parts after extrusion level in the Aluminium Profile Industry?

Logistic module users prefer to use as "Piece(PC=ST)" while cost accounting(CO) module users want to use “KG” in their processes.

We know that, we can define one of them as base unit of measure, and the other one as alternative unit of measure. But in SAP system(S4HANA), base unit of measure is available everywhere in standard programs and reports, whereas alternative unit of measure can be seen some standart screens only. We need some best practice approach to give the best decision.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.
