What is a Unit of Measure (UoM)?

Unit of Measure Definition

A unit of measure (UOM) is the unit that any given item can be packaged into, or built into a product assembly. For example, you can package drinks in a single can, two-liter bottle, or other six-pack. In manufacturing assemblies or BOMs, each child component is stipulated with a specific UOM type (e.g., each, inch). As an example, if you had capacitors called out in a BOM, you would have a UOM of each (EA) and would stipulate the quantity of capacitors required to build the assembly.
