I'm quite surprised by that Nhomar.  I have never found an Odoo feature that doesn't work as expected.

There is the BoM way which I find clumsy and inconvenient.  You can define a separate UoS with a conversion factor in a different category.  I know your email states otherwise, but that is not the case.  The UoS entry is on the Sales tab.  What you cannot do is change the UoM once it is set to a different category.

It is a matter of preferences, but on our side we encourage the make a BoM and change your Waight product and Convert to pieces.

With this approach all accounting and Inventories work like a charm.

IMHO the UoS feature is incorrectly designed in Odoo (and hiden a lot may be in some point it will be re-written or simply will disappear).
