Katana supports various units of measure to help businesses accurately track inventory and manage production processes. Understanding and configuring these units is crucial for maintaining consistency across your operations, ensuring that materials and products are measured correctly.

The NPM Convert Units library is used by Katana for converting between quantities in different units. Below is a list of supported units as per the library documentation at https://www.npmjs.com/package/convert-units

Katana can support conversions across relevant measures; for instance, it can calculate the number of inches in a kilometre or the number of ml in a fluid ounce. To do this, if prompted to create a new item for the measure eg in, ft, fl-oz, etc., Ignore the prompt and continue. As long as you have entered in the correct abbreviation below, Katana will use that to determine the conversion rate.

*Note:** Katana can't perform cross measurement conversions for measures that have no relation (e.g. ml to mi, ft to cm2, etc).*
