SAP DSiM UoM Conversions
SAP DSiM (Demand Signal Management) is a harmonization solution. The harmonization of external and internal data should also take care of UoM (unit of measure) conversions. Industry and manufacturer master data often represent a different UoM than external sales data from retailers. Manufacturer products are often shipped in bulk for example as cartons or pallets whereby retailers sell the products as pieces or packs of two or more of a certain material. Therefore to be able to analyze and compare these quantities from different sources we need to configure UoM conversion within DSiM.
