First of all what version of BPCS, ERPlx are you utilizing?

It is always a recommendation not to change units of measure when there
are orders in the system regardless of the source of the order (shop,
customer, P.O. etc.).

In order to correctly state what is on order for each category you need
to convert the order quantity as though you were manually keying the
order, in your case a PO.

If the unit of measure change is for the stocking UOM ONLY: Then;

Change the UOM in the Item master file and CIC if your version contains
that field.
Change the UOM on the PO line.
The past ITH transactions will need to be updated also so that all of
the quantities viewed in Material status (INV300) are consistent.

All standard reports will not need any changes.

If you are changing other UOM's please contact me directly for the other
things that you need to change.

Subject: [BPCS-L] How would you handle U.O.M change

If we change the unit of measure on a few part numbers - from Each to
Feet - what would be the ramifications on all the Inventory transaction
(ITH) and Purchase order (HPH/HPO) history - and related reports??

Any other files which may need changing?
