WM - Units of Measures


Hi All,

We are in textile implementation and I have a question regarding the warehouse management.

We are procuring yarn in KG's and now the supplier sends the yarn in CARTONS, PALLETS, BAGS and the number of cones in each carton/pallet/bags is fixed but the weight of each cone can vary from supplier to supplier. Now the goods receipt and issue happens in cartons/pallets/bags only.

In view of the above scenario please let me know how to handle the below mentioned scenarios.

1. For 1 material can I maintain multiple WM units as carton/pallet/bags?

2. Does the varying weight of cone effect the storage in WM if yes how to handle this? How to handle this varying weights of each cone. This cannot be standardize as this is purely supplier driven.
