    I am looking for some advice on how to handle the following process in our Oracle Mfg - Average Costing environment.:

    Certain items such as paneling, plywood, etc. are purchased from the vendor by the sheet. Currently the item is received in to inventory with a unit of measure of sq ft. Material is issued to a job in sq ft. The issue is being able to tell how many sheets we have in inventory.

    I did setup item specific unit of measure conversions which will allow the buyer to create po's with a sheet uom and receive with a sheet uom while converting to sq ft for inventory.

    One thought would be to issue the material to a job with a sheet uom and then return the unused material back to inventory using another item number with a sq ft uom.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
