Unit Of Measure in MD04

Material Base Unit of measure is EA. It's weight is 0.400KG.

In the BOM of Other Material it was used as 0.001 KG.

Alternate UOM maintained as 2KG = 5 EA.

Issue is when they running the MRP, in MD04 it is consuming 1 EA or 0.004KG. But actually as per the BOM it should be
0.001 KG only.

Please Advise how to handle this.

    Hi Praveen,

    Change the BOM of other material . and enter the component qty as 1 EA , and in the header tab , change the base unit as 4.

    this will solve the problem.

    Hello

    The MRP calculation is always carried out on the base unit of measure. Since your base unit is EA and there are no decimal places, the KG quantity is rounded to 1.

    My recommendation for you is to always use the smallest unit as the base unit of measure and let EA as the alternative unit.
