Each class has a base unit of measure. The base unit of measure is used to perform conversions between units of measure in the class. For this reason, the base unit of measure should be representative of the other units of measure in the class, and generally one of the smaller units. For example, you could use CU (cubic feet) as the base unit of a class called Volume.
Unit of measure classes are not organization-specific. Default unit of measure classes are not provided.
Attention: You should use the Oracle Assets or Oracle Order Entry versions of this window only when you use those products without Oracle Inventory or Oracle Purchasing. If you use Inventory or Purchasing, you should use their Unit of Measure Classes windows.
