How to maintain different alternative unit of measure at different locations for the same product ?

Hello Experts,

I got this issue while working on TLB

Vendor 1 -----------------------Product 1 (60% Quota), 26 Pallets/Truck, 60 Cases/Pallet-----------------------> DC1

Vendor 2 -----------------------Product 1 (40% Quota), 26 Pallets/Truck, 55 Cases/Pallet-----------------------> DC1

In TLB profile I was maintaining maximum truck load of 26 pallets.

For this, I wanted to maintain in the Product Master Data different alternative unit of measure at different locations.

In this case I wanted to maintain

1 Pallet = 60 Cases at Vendor 1

1 Pallet = 55 Cases at Vendor 2

Instead of updating the values at global level, I selected Vendor 1 and gave 1 Pallet = 60 Cases, but the same value is being updated at Vendor 2 as well, instead of 55 Cases.

Please let me know how to do that.

Thank you,

Venkata

    Hi Venkata,

    UoM is a global data, so it would get maintained at a global level only. When you select a location while displaying/changing the product, it means that you would see the location specific data IN ADDITION TO the global data.

    For your scenario, you should use 2 different UoMs for the 2 different palletes that you would be getting from Vendor 1 and Vendor 2. I could see various UoMs like P01, P02, .. for palletes. You could pick up 2 of them, and maintain 2 UoM conversions for the palletes belonging to the 2 vendors.

    e.g. 1 P01 = 60 cases, 1 P02 = 55 cases

    And then create 2 different TLB profiles for the 2 T-lanes between the DC and the 2 vendors. Use pallete UoM P01 in one T-Lane, and pallete UoM P02 in the other T-Lane. This should take care of your issue.

    Thanks - Pawan

    Hi,

    You have to maintain your UoM by location in Location/Product (not in global data).

    Thanks, Marius
