Description

Based on Measurement Unit

Whether or not the physical measurements (Cube, Dim. Weight, etc.) of all units of measure are proportional to each other, based on the # of Eaches field and the physical measurements specified in the Measurement Unit.

For example, suppose your Measurement Unit is an each, and it has a Dim. Weight of 1 lb. If Based on Measurement Unit is true (checked), then your case, which has 8 eaches, must weight 8 lb. If Based on Measurement Unit is false (unchecked), then your case, which has 8 eaches, can weigh any amount. For instance, the case might weigh 8.5 lb if it includes extra packaging.

Name

The name for the unit of measure, such as "case". You can select from the drop-down list, or create your own unit of measure name by typing in a name.

Abbreviation

The abbreviation for the name, such as "cs" for case. Limit six characters. If you created a new unit of measure name, you will also create a new, corresponding abbreviation for it.

# of Eaches

The quantity associated with a unit of measurement, relative to eaches. For example, if a case includes 12 eaches, the # of Eaches is 12. You can also think of this as a factor of eaches that is in the Unit of Measure.

Standard Unit

This unit of measure is the default putaway unit for this item, and is displayed in reports about this item master.

Shipping Unit

This unit of measure is the default used for sales orders and shipments.

Receiving Unit

This unit of measure is the default used for purchase orders and receipts.

Weight Unit

This unit of measure is deprecated and may be removed soon. SmartTurn recommends that you disregard this unit of measure. This unit was used in calculating the weight of a shipment.

Billing Unit

This unit of measure is the default used for calculating billing information for the item for all billable documents.

Measurement Unit

This unit of measure is the default used for calculating the physical characteristics (measurements) of new units of measure. (Item masters that are marked Based on Measurement Unit must always have all measurements be exactly proportional across all units of measure.)

Length

The length of the unit of measure.

Width

The width of the unit of measure.

Height

The height of the unit of measure.

Cube

The cube or volume of the unit of measure. For the Measurement Unit, this value is calculated as Length * Width * Height. For item masters marked Based on Measurement Unit, this value is also proportional (based on the # of Eaches) to the Cube of the Measurement Unit.

Dim. Weight

The dimensional weight of the unit of measure.

Ti

The number of this unit of measure that fit in one layer on a standard pallet.

Hi

The number of layers of this unit of measure that fit on a standard pallet.

Number in Pallet

The total number of this unit of measure that fit on a standard pallet. For the Measurement Unit, this value is calculated as Ti * Hi. For item masters marked Based on Measurement Unit, this value is also proportional (based on the # of Eaches) to the Number in Pallet of the Measurement Unit.
