The base UOM is maintained at the client level & not at plant level.

So even if other plant WANT to maintain the BOM in alternative UOM, it can not be done.

Beside this the BOM is the master data which you need to maintain once.

I assume that your R&D dept. does produce the FG base on alternative UOM.

So you can tackle this by using concept of 'Production unit' in work schduling view.

That means even though the BOM is in base UOM the order will be created in order unit with due requirement of all the components.

Hope this helps you.
