Area based units of measure.

started a topic 9 months ago

Currently DEAR can only accommodate linear units of measure. For products that must be costed in two dimensions such as a roll of material which must be portioned in terms of length and width, DEAR can only accommodate the length of a roll on a given SKU in stocking an usage.


This seems like a significant gap in the features offered by the system, and would be most welcomed by the current user base.


Please see a worked example below:


Packaging film rolls are delivered in two separate sizes:

   1m width rolls of 25m length

   1.5m width rolls of 25m length


When a 2m length is cut from the 1m roll, and partially used in the width dimension, it is impossible to accurately update the system on the specific area of film used.

If a secondary unit of measure is added on a per SKU basis, the system can calculate and process cost in terms of area and give a much more accurate outcome in terms of usage, availability and costing.


Please consider implementing this as there are a number of industrial applications which would benefit from this feature.

Best regards!
