Maintain Multiple Sale Unit of Measure

Dear all,

How can we maintain multiple sale unit of measure for a particular material in single sales area. Meaning different sales orders can have different unit of measure for the same material in the same sales area.

Regards and Thanks,

    You can take you of

    Sales unit

    Unit of measure in which the material is sold. Enter a value in this field only if you want to use a unit of measure differing from the base unit of measure. If the field does not contain an entry, the system will assume that the unit of measure is the base unit of measure. The value that you define in the material master record is proposed in other transactions/events, where it can be changed

    And this can change with your sales area. For this you have to extend the material to desired sales area with respective sales units, where Base Unit of Measure will be constant for all sales area.

    Hope it can assist you in understanding.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Check (MM02) Material Master - Additional Data button in menu bar - Unit of Measurement Tab

      OR

      Scenario: - BP buys ItemA in Kg and sells in Gr. (Refer SAP Note 883504 - Different UoM for the same Item)

      1. Define ItemA with kg as the unit of measure in the Purchasing Data tab - and Gr as the sales unit of measure in Sales Data tab. Enter items per purchase unit as 1000 and the items per sales unit as 1.

      2. Generate an AP invoice with a quantity of 1, the items per purchase unit is 1000 so 1000 items enter the stock.

      3. Generate an AR invoice with a quantity of 1, the items per purchase unit is 1 so the stock of the item is reduced by a quantity of 1 gram.

      There is no way to indicate that the stock has been reduced by 1000kg which is equal to 1 gram.

      Workaround:

      1. Duplicate ItemA as Purchase Item (UoM=Kg) and Sales Item (UoM=Gr) - This means that you will have 2 items, ItemA1 and ItemA2

      OR

      2. Generate ItemA (both Sales and Purchase Item) by configuring UoM and Price according to the smallest UoM and perform every transaction by keeping this UoM

      NB: Do not forget to define UoM in Administration - System Initialization - General Settings - Display tab - Default Weight Unit

    Hi,

    Maintain all possible UOM in the Additional data. (Normally you mention the conversion in 'Additional Data' of the material.) You should be able to use them while creating the sales order for any sales area. Also, in the Sales org data for the material, Make 'Base UOM' and 'Sales UOM' as same. It should work for you.

    Thanks
