Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: New weight units added

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


In Exact Online we can define units of the type length, weight, time, other, area and volume. In Exact for Manufacturing we can also define subtypes, like for the type weight we have weight units gram, kilogram etc. These weight units are important for conversions: Exact Online knows that 1 kilogram = 1,000 gram. On the request of our customers we have recently expanded the available weight units with 5 new ones.

Weight units

We have added new weight units for microgram, ounce, troy ounce, US ton and metric ton. These units are automatically converted to other units of the type weight, provided that the result is within the limit of significance (three decimals).
