Conversion between planning UOM and Order UOM cannot be Batch dependent

Cause

If we maintain the batch dependent conversions in the product master data, we cannot use the inventory UOM(Unit of Measure) as the ordered UOM.
This batch UOM will only be used when the identified stock is maintained in order to convert the planning or ordered UOM to the batch specific
UOM.

In order to check the Quantity conversions maintained

  1. Go to Product Portfolio Work Center.
  2. Navigate to By Materials tab.
  3. Search for DEF(DEF refers to Material id).
  4. Select Edit.
  5. Navigate to View all.
  6. Navigate to General Tab.

Resolution

This is the standard behavior as designed.
