ACM support for Unit Of Measure

We at Parker Hannifin Corporation working on integration of IBM MDMCS (Version 11.6) with WCS (Version 8.X) using OOTB ACM accelerator.

At commerce (WCS) end there is a field named Unit of Measurement at value level which can be associated in each Item while attaching an attribute to it. If we take an example attribute as weight then while adding this attribute with Specific part, user can select the associated UOM value (like KG, LBS etc…).

Whereas while modeling the attribute dictionary in PIM there is no way to mention about this UOM which is Meta information about an attribute. Via this PMR, we want to know about what is the correct way to configure UOM values in ACM so that it would flow down seamlessly to WCS in the ACM XML extract generated by ACM Export Custom tool and can be consumed by receiving end in proper way. Please refer PMR Case TS003026101. This PMR is now converted to APR as enhancement.
