What's the problem we're trying to solve?

When using a recipes / assembly previously there was no way to round the final quantity meaning the amount allowed and subsequently purchased could be a fraction of an item, which wasn't realistic. We added rounding options to provide a smarter way to handle the way you estimate and purchase items.

What is UOM Min and UOM Inc?

  • UOM Min = Unit of measure minimum, which is the minimum amount of an item you can purchase. Example here is that for a given timber the minimum you can buy might be 1.2m.

  • UOM Inc = Unit of measure increment, which is the increment you can buy the item in after the minimum. Using the timber example again, after the minimum of 1.2m you might be able to buy that timber in 0.3m increments ie: 1.5m/1.8m/2.1m/etc.

How does it work?

You can manually type in the UOM Min and UOM Inc values as you make a recipes / assembly, you can save a recipes / assembly and those values will save, you can even add those values in at the item level in a catalog and they'll pull through.
