Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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.
