Units of Measure - Something you Probably Never Think About
“Units of measure” are terms that give meaning to quantities. Common units are; ea., pc., ft., lbs., gal., etc... When they do their job, you hardly notice them. But if they are missing, confusing, or unclear, they will cause problems - ranging from minor headaches and annoyances to massively expensive blunders. To keep units of measure consistent and to make sure that the people in your organization use the same variations of units, Clearly Inventory allows you to set up a table of "approved" units of measure. You can lock this table so no one can change it. So, let's take a second and think about our units of measure before we create our list.
