Units of Measure
A "unit of measure" is a term that gives a meaning to some quantity. For example some common units are "ea", "pr", "lbs.", "gal.", etc.
When a good unit of measure does its job you hardly notice them. In contrast if they're confusing or unclear they will definitely cause you problems.
If your business system supports it I recommend you create standardized, accepted units of measure in a table that inventory, sales, purchasing, etc. modules pull from. Most systems allow you to lock that table so no one can modify this except for authorized personnel.
