Units of Measure Tips and Tricks

The factor may be a decimal. Use a set on multiple items (be sure to name it generically so it is easily understood what the set contains).

Use the smallest unit of measure as the base, in most cases.

Be careful to not change the related units on the set or factors to ensure accurate inventory.

In documents that give quantity, the unit is always the base unit.

In inventory adjustments, the quantity is in the base unit of measure.
