What is Unit of Measure?

A unit of measure (UOM) is a standardised quantity used to express the magnitude or size of a physical attribute. It provides a reference point for quantifying and comparing measurements across different contexts and domains. In relation to product information, UOMs encompass various metrics such as length, weight, volume, time, and currency, each with specific units of measurement (e.g., metres, kilograms, litres, hours, Euros). UOMs enable consistent and accurate communication of quantities in scientific, industrial, commercial, and everyday contexts. They play a crucial role in data analysis, manufacturing, and trade, and commerce, offering clarity and precision in conveying numerical information.
