Re: American units of measure

Eva,

You have do define what is the master unit in the category (for example, weight), and then relate the others to this master unit, regardless of whether is LB or KG.

Now, the weights referred in the material master are dimensionless. That is, you must assume a company-wise base unit of measure, that will not be indicated in the company, and then be consistent across all products. 

The module 'delivery', that allows you to define carrier and delivery grids for prices, is an exception because it provides a default UoM of Kg. This is a really bad approach, but it is what it is.

What you can do is to change this to default to 'LB' by default instead (or whatever other unit you decide to use as base weight UoM).

Regards,
Jordi.

Hi experts,

Would like to know how you handled the weight and the volumes in US, as this is mostly in LB and inch3 and Odoo has it in kg and m3 on the material master, sales order, delivery, carrier information, move, etc.

Thanks for sharing

Eva P.
