Maintaining measurement calculations data at the items


The Measurement calculations module is a building block for companies that trade in items with variable properties, such as wood, steel, or glass products. Due to the flexibility of the system, this module also makes it possible to work with properties other than dimensions, such as quality.

With the Measurement calculations module, during the entry of logistics transactions, the numbers of items with variable properties can be entered using a self-definable formula, a so-called measurement calculation. A maximum of six entry fields for properties can be defined per measurement calculation. For each entry field, it is indicated how the entry takes place in the screen and which name should be displayed in the screen. This name can be “Length”, “Width”, or “Height”; it can also be “Wheelbarrows” or “Sandbags”. The different properties can be added together, subtracted from each other, multiplied with each other, and/or divided by each other. In addition to the six entry fields for properties, six more free fields can be defined; three text fields, a date field, and two Yes/No fields.

A measurement calculation can be linked to multiple items. Additionally, you can also link multiple measurement calculations to one item.

The fields and options for maintaining items with SE5121 Measurement calculations in your license are largely the same as when SE5121 Measurement calculations is not available in your license. This document therefore only discusses the deviating cases. A description of the other fields can be found in the document for creating and maintaining items.
