The term "catch weight product" refers to a class of product (typically food) that cannot be portioned to a predetermined quantity and hence is usually sold in packages of varying quantity. Ex: chicken, meat, flowers, oils, etc.,.
Oracle Order Management and Advanced Pricing support the catch weight functionality and provide the flexibility for the business to generate the invoice based on the secondary UOM.
Catch Weight Processing Benefits:
- Recording of dual units of measure for inventory, sales and invoicing transactions.
- Definition of a nominal or average weight per item
- Recording of actual weights at time of shipment
- Customers can order in one unit of measure such as packages or cases and be invoiced based on per-pound (or Kg or ton) pricing, thus avoiding the ambiguity between the seller and the buyer.
