Today we will see how to mange Multiple Unit of Measures in Odoo.
We have to consider 3 things while working with different UoM’s.
- UoM Category
- Type, and
The UoM Category should always be the same between corresponding UoM’s. Here we take example of UoM which belongs to Category Weight.
- Kilo Gram and
Here, as we want to manage and stock the product Grain in Kilo Gram, so we set Type as Reference Unit of Measure for this category. And as the UoM Ton is bigger than Kilo Gram, so following option has to be selected for the Type with appropriate Ratio.
The same thing will be applied while selling the product, though the system will not automatically propose Gram in Unit of Measure field, but it will in UoS, so we have to change Gram in UoM and the system will convert the Unit Price of the product accordingly.
