Clarification required on Unit of Measure

Former Member

Hi All,

We have an issue on Unit of measure. For particular material, we maintain the basic UoM as EA in the Basic Data view of the material master. Also we maintained the alternate UoM as 1EA = 1PC.

While creating the BOM, we entered the particular material as component with quanity and entered the UoM as PC, but the system throughing an error as" UoM PC is supported for the material".

Kindly clarify as we are missing any configuration related to this.

Regards,

Sureshbabu G.

Dear Suresh,

Check by assigning this alternative unit of measure as the unit of issue in the Plant Data/storage 1 view or else in the work

scheduling view in the material master and then check whether are you able to assign this as the BOM component with the

required unit of measure.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Is there any configuration setting to consider AUoM while creating BOM eventhough we not enter the Unit of Issue in Plant Data view.

You need to add PC as the unit of issue in Plant data/Stor1 tab in material master of material.

Hi,

Is that the only way to solve this issue. Already we entered the same in AUoM. It will not work. Kindly suggest.

Yes.

In all the cases you need to maintain AUoM in the additional data of material master. There you're just mentioning the conversion factor not where (in what application) you're gonna use it.

In plant storage location data 1 tab you maintain the unit of issue for the IM managed materials.

If you have WM integration then you need to maintain it in WM tab1.

If you want to use the material as header material in the production order then you maintain it in work scheduling view.

Similarly for purchasing and sales in their respective tabs.
