Currently we have one U of M for sale-able FG items, EACH. EACH is our only U of M that has 0 decimal places and EA, which we use for most raw goods, is 4 decimal places. This was the best practice guidance given to us 7 years ago when setting up GP and the necessary reasoning of that guidance is unknown. We do buy some items that are whole raw materials and will never be consumed as less than 1 item. Is there a reason that we wouldn't set the item up as EACH or another U of M that has 0 decimal places?The next part of this question is that we now have some items that can be used as a BOM component or sold as a FG. What U of M / decimal place setting would you give these items? Again, when purchased and consumed or sold, it will always be done in whole units.Overall we're trying to figure out when & why we want to have multiple decimal places. Clearly if we buy 1 package of 1000 screws, we'll want to consume them at less than the original whole value. But if we buy 1 box, and it will always be 1 box with or without extra items put into the box, is there a reason that the 1 box should have any decimal places?Thanks in advance!
